Becoming a member of this group requires going through our Advanced Short Sale Training. The cost is $147.00 for a 2 year membership and 13 hours of training (audio).

If we do not have an advanced member in the area needed we then send out a group message to the members of the Referral Group. Joining the Referral Group is free.

If there is still no one available to assist we then send out an email to all members of Short Sale Superstars. Also free.

Good info here. The wait period on Fannie sales seems reasonable - increased competition and better opportunity for the general public.

Good morning BB, you know these updates of yours are wonderful, thank you. The problem is... I am always angry after I read a few of the different ones. It only goes to show me how irresponsible these lenders are. And I often wonder why they are so regulated up front on a loan but not on the short sale.

Back to work. Thank you for all you do to keep us informed!

(and frustrated, LOL)

Wow, that is interesting about Fannie Mae dictating market time. I don't like anyone dictating anything. More creeping communism.
