Short Sales: Why Bank Of America Is Offering A New Short Sale Program

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Action
IL – A cooperative short sale may be a good option depending on your situation. But, you need to remember that Banks are not in the business of making life easier for its customers, much less anyone trying a short sale. Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure. Banks are in business to turn a profit. The main reason Bank of America has initiated the Cooperative Short Sale is to increase the bank's bottom line profit. They increase their profit whenever they cut losses on loans that are in default. The bank faced several problems: 1. They have a bad reputation for taking too long to process short sales and loan modifications. 2. Due to the length of time to buy a short sale, buyers are making lowball offers. 3. Many agents are in experienced on short sales and unsure of what to do. As a result, many agents were in the dark on where to price a short sale property. Before listing the property, Bank of America will provide the terms such as the list price and deficiency judgments. In doing so, the bank is able to provide a shorter decision time once an offer is received. In fact, Bank of America claims that once an offer is received, they will provide a decision in 10 days! This simply means that Buyers will be less frustrated with the purchase process and more willing to wait for it to be completed. With a traditional short sale many Buyers get frustrated and walk before a response is received on the short sale. Thinking about a short sale?

Interesting read. I just sent the listing paperwork over for a BOA short sale. Hopefully this one will go more smoothly.
