Does Bank of America hold your mortgage? Then this is a must read

Real Estate Broker/Owner with LemonTree Realty

Bank of America is trying to be as proactive as possible in this economy and understands the hardtimes that many Americans have fallen on and even still there are many that just need to sell their home but cant. Over the next few months many home owners with Bank of America home mortgages will begin to receive a Bank of America Transition guide package. If you havent received one yet I have been given permission as a CDPE member to give you a copy, just email me at 


Many Americans who have missed payments or fallen on hardtimes just dont know where to turn and feel foreclosure is their only options and Im hear to tell you it's not. If any of the following apply you have options.

1) You want to sell your house but it's worth less then what you owe (you maybe deliquent or not on your mortgage)

2) You have missed payments and are not able to catch up

3) You have tried to modify your loan and cant


If any of these options apply to you, you dont have to face foreclosure Bank of America has numerous Short Sale options availablle.

One of the options: Im considering a short sale and I havent received an offer yet

Great news, for those of us living here in Florida there is a new program out that could give you up to $20,000 in relocation assistance, a deficiency waiver, and you get to remain in the home until it sells! (I have a client now that qualifies and will receive when we sell her home through the short sale process $17,068.85)

BAnk of aMerica Short Sale Process

Here's a tip: An experienced real estate agent is important - Reach out ot an agent who has experience with short sales, a proven track record and certified education handling short sales, they are more complex then a traditional sale. Picking the right agent could be the difference of transitioning from your current home with money in your pocket and being evicted. If your in the Central Florida area we would love the opportunity to help.

I know of no lender who would prefer foreclosure to a short sale....and these kinds of packages can be lifelines for people in distress.

I have a seller who has also received this package. She will receive just over 15k. She has until Nov 4 to sign and is hesitating because she does not trust the system. I am really trying to get her to realize that this is "real". I am worried that they will pull this deal once we pass that date. Not sure what else to do here!!!

Ha, thx for the heads up.  Will check it out.  BOA has not behaved well in the past on some of my short sales.  Maybe they have seen the light!

Are you saying that Bank of America are actually doing something right? But then have they cut down the time frames too?

It always surprises me when people say that about BOA I love them. Our approval time on average is less then 52 days on their short sales and have receive 2 pre approved short sales with BPOs done upfront!

Heather, Nice article. In the past BOA has been very slow to deal with. We have noticed that they seem to be picking up their game.
