orange city florida short sale


Tutas Towne Realty and Bryant Tutas  just had another successful Orange City Florida Short Sale closing with Bank of America.

 The property:

  Investment Property. 3 bedroom 2 bath single family home located in Orange City Florida. This home has 1,240 sq ft of living area and was built in 2005. It was purchased new in  2005 for $158,900. It Sold 8/15/2012 for $65,600. That's a decline in value of 59% in 7 years. 


  1st Mortgage with Bank of America for $112,000


  •  Loss of income. Loss of renters.


  Tutas Towne Realty placed the property on the market 13 February 2012 for $69,000. We negotiated a deal at $60,000, 5 days later. Unfortunately we lost the buyer and had to place the property back on the market.

 90 days later we placed the property pending again at $65,000. This buyer also walked!! So...we placed the porperty back on the market and found another buyer in 2 days at $65,000.

 After 60 days Bank of America countered by $600 to $65,600. The buyer had already cleared out every contract contigency and had placed a $5,000 deposit. This $600 counter almost cost us the buyer as they were already impatient. The counter gave them to opportunity to walk and get their $5,000 deposit back. In order to keep them on board the seller agreed to pay $600 towards their homeowners insurance. The Buyers agreed.

This was a Bank of America Co-op short Sale and Bank of America agreed to pay the Seller an incentive fo $5,900 to do the short sale. Remember this was also an investment porperty. the property does not have to be a primary resident to receive incentive money form Bank of America.

 Tutas Towne Realty closed the transaction on 15 August 2012.  184 days from listing to closing!!

 Bank of America accepted $53,400 or .52 cents on the dollar for the 1st mortgage. 

  ***The Seller received FULL WAIVER OF DEFICIENCY with a $5,900 cash incentive to the seller.

We closed on 3 investment property short sales for these sellers. All closed within a 30 day time frame. Full Waiver of Deficiency on all 3 loans. 3 different lenders. NET $3,000 to the seller.
