Tutas Towne Realty and Bryant Tutas  just had another successful Wellington Florida Short Sale closing with Wells Fargo and LCS. 

 The property:

Investment Property. 4 bedroom 3 bath single family home located in Wellington Florida. This home has 2,986 sq ft of living area and was built in 2007. It was purchased new in 2007 for $522,000. It Sold 04/4/2013 for $305,000. That's a decline in value of 42% in 6 years. 


  • 1st Mortgage with Wells Fargo for $427,500
  •  2nd Mortgage with LCS for $76,500


  • Financial


The property was placed on the market 13 August 2012 for $300,000. Ten days later we negotiated a cash deal at $285,000. The short sale was submitted. The investor, Fannie Mae, countered at $346,000. We disputed the value and they would not budge. The property was placed back on the market at $346,000.

After several months and price reductions we found another cash buyer at $300,000. This was submitted to the lender and Fannie Mae countered again at.......$379,500!!!

The buyer increased thier offer to $305,000 and I submitted a value dispute directly to Fannie Mae through their Short Sale escalation tool. After a few days Fannie Mae agreed with our value of $305,000 and the short sale was apporved.

The transaction closed on 4 April 2013.  Only 234 days from listing to closing!!

Chase accepted $275,500 or .54 cents on the dollar for the 1st mortgage. 

LCS accepted $6,000 or .08 cents on the dollar for the 2nd mortgage.

   ***The Seller received FULL WAIVER OF DEFICIENCY for both loans.
