It Was a Good Week for Florida Short Sale Approvals at Tutas Towne Realty

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Tutas Towne Realty, Inc and Garden Views Realty, LLC BK607690


Hi folks. Short Sales DO get approved. It just takes patience, organization and negotiating skills. In the last 7 days the following lenders have issued approvals for our Florida Short Sales.

Orlando Florida Short Sale with Bank of America

Orlando Short Sale



  • Property sold for $127,000. The amount owed Bank of America is $200,000 on the first and $38,000 on the 2nd. The 1st agreed to $109,894 (55%) the 2nd $3,000 (8%). The property was listed in March 2010. Bank of America denied a contract of $130,000 in April. This week they accepted $127,000!! I guess their decision back in April cost them us another few thousand.



Davenport Florida Short Sale with US Bank (FHA) and PNC Bank

Davenport Florida Short Sale



Property sold for $60,000. Since FHA will only allow $2,500 to be paid towards the 2nd the Buyer agreed to pay PNC Bank an additional $4,000. US Bank was owed $93,500 and accepted $51,000 (53%) and the 2nd with PNC Bank was owed $61,500 they accepted $6,150 (10%). We had a buyer that fell out last week because they would not come up with the additional $4,000 for the 2nd. We placed it back on the market and found another buyer in one day. 


Kissimmee Florida Short Sale with Bank of America

Kissimmee Florida Short Sale



Property sold for $60,000. This one has taken over a year. Bank of America was owed $190,000 and accepted $54,000 (28%) the 2nd also with Bank of America was owed $38,000 and accepted $2,350 (6%). We have gone through 5 buyers on this one. The Buyer that is closing has been under contract for a year. Patience galore!!

Good news, BB. I suspect it is mostly due to your knowledge and experience in knowing how to get these done. There are several sets of happier folks now.

My heart goes out to those who have many short sales in their areas. It's hard enough sometimes to get a traditional sale through. I've stopped complaining about those difficulties.

Hey BB: I just referred a woman named Tammy to you who has a short sale to sell in Lakeland. No referral necessary. I don't really know if you sell in Lakeland, but I told her you'd absolutely know the answers to her questions and if you couldn't help her, you would know who can.
