Tutas Towne Realty and Bryant Tutas  just had another successful Winter Haven Florida Short Sale closing with Fifth Third Bank.


 The property:


Investment property. 3 bedroom 2 bath single family home located in Winter Haven Florida. This home has 1,728 sq ft of living area and was built in 1999. It was purchased in 2006 for $200,000. It Sold 04/12/2013 for $112,000. That's a decline in value of 44% in 8 years. 




  • 1st Mortgage with Fifth Third Bank for $150,000



  • Relocation
  • Loss of tenants




The property was placed on the market 16 October 2012 for $90,000.It was placed under contract 3 days later at $85,000. Fannie Mae countered at $124,900!!

So once gain we lost a buyer over Fannie MAe's inflated value. The poprerty was placed back on the market at the higher price while I simulatneously disputed the value at the Fannie Mae Homepath Short Sale Website.

After several price reductions we were able to find another cash buyer at $110,000. Fannie Mae again countered at $124,900. I continued to push the value issue and I was finally able to get the short sale approved at $112,000.

The transaction closed on 12 April 2013.  Only 178 days from listing to closing!!


Fifth Third Bank  accepted $103,000 or .69 cents on the dollar for the 1st mortgage. 



   ***The Seller received FULL WAIVER OF DEFICIENCY on the 1st.

Those Fannie Mae valuation disputes have worked really well for me, too. FIfth Third Bank is not one that we see in California.
