Tutas Towne Realty placed the property on the market May 2012 for $110,000. It went pending two weeks later at $100,000. After 4 months Bank of America countered the deal at $111,000. Buyer came up tp $107,500 and the Short Sale was approved.

Bank of America accepted $98,400 or .48 cents on the dollar for the 1st mortgage.

   ***The Seller received FULL WAIVER OF DEFICIENCY with a $1,000 cash incentive to the seller as part of the Bank of America FHA PFS.

What the Sellers had to say:

Wanted to share how our short sale went.  Bryant crossed all his t's and dotted the i's on our short sale.  We were pleased with his efforts and very happy that closing came and went without a hitch. He made the right calls and knew the right people to keep the ball rolling.  

The short sale took longer than we anticipated but as we later learned; that is what can be expected when working with the bank and all the tossing of our file down.  But together the calls we made got the job done.  Thanks to Bryant for his time and keeping us calm throughout the whole process.  Gary and Jennifer S. Closed December 2012
