Bank of America Cutting 30,000 Jobs - Good or Bad?

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Louisville East (502) 664-7827


Bank of America is downsizing 30,000 employees. Click here for article.


  • Is this good or bad for the housing market?
  • Will this help BOA process short sales faster?
  • Will this help BOA process REO's faster?


Realtors nationwide are trying to help the banks mitigate their losses by processing short sales.

However, Bank of America is notorious for taking a year or two years to process individual short sales, all the while the houses are losing value. The many thousands of short sales that were handled ineffectively could have helped BOA recover more funds than they did by foreclosing and dumping the houses as REO's.

Just plain hard to understand.

Not hard to understand at all.  Banks make money on foreclosures.

Dave - I agree...if they had been better with short sale approval maybe they wouldn't be in such bad shape!

Bank of America lost my business back in 1999. Nothing they have done in the ensuing 12 years encourages me to give them any type of business whatsoever.
