Bank of America Is Changing Their Short Sale Process - Approval In 10 Days!

Bank of America Is Changing Their Short Sale Process - Approval In 10 Days!

As a Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE), I sat through a live broadcast with Alex Charpen and a representative fromCertified Distressed Property Expert Bank of America.

 

Bank of America is working to accelerate their short sale process by working before the home is marketed.  Setting a price, working with the seller to make sure they qualify for the short sale. 

The process starts with gathering necessary paperwork from the seller, appraising the property to determine market value, submitting the results to the Mortgage Insurance company, and finally to the Investor for approval.

Once the short sale is approved, they will work closely with the listing agent, monitoring the price and activity until they receive an offer.

Then when the offer is presented to the bank, all they have to do is give final loan approval within 10 days.

Having closed a large number of short sales in 2010, Bank of America knows they need to work harder this year to save more homes from foreclosure.

I'm ready to try out the process....just waiting for the next Bank Of America distressed seller to call.

Bank of America Is Changing Their Short Sale Process - Approval in 10 days will be so much better than the old process.

The appraisal, relevant paper work, etc. is back to the bank and approval happens in 10 days?  This does not seem possible.  I like the idea of a 10 day approval.

Kay, Wells Fargo did the same for most recent short sale listing, I got a pre-approval in 24 days!  I am happy of that. Now I know my price is in the same ball park as theirs.  It makes things a lot easier and more efficient to work.  My sellers are wonderful, they work very closely with me and we keep eacn other up to date frequently.

I would like to reblog this, this will be some good news for some home owners.

Oh, so now agents won't have to put some imaginary list price on a home (mortgaged by BOA) so they can get some ridiculous low-ball offer so they can get a negotiatorassigned who can then request paperwork and maybe then a BPO and maybe three months later get started on an actual negotiation.  That is of course if any of the buyers bothered to stick around and foreclosure isn't imminent.

/golf clap for BOA.  Great idea, makes you wonder why they have waited 4 years to do this?  Better late than never I suppose...

Katy, BOA seems to be making a concerted effort from the Chairman on down to adjust to their many and horrible issues.  I am not surprised that so many of us take the wait and see attitude, but if they stand behind what is being said, then it is about time and I applaud it.  I have not experience any of the new behaviour yet.

Paula, I'll believe it when I see it too.  Maybe Bank of America is learning from their mistakes.

Conrad, the approval may take only 10 days, but the process will get started prior to an approval.  Let's hope it works.

Iran, I'm with you there.  Maybe with a good price, we won't get as many low ball offers.

Bill, I'm skeptical too.  But some of the other banks have already changed their process.....maybe Bank of America is doing the same.

Karen, me too.  If I wasn't looking for a BOA short sale, I'd be swamped with them right now.  Instead I have none to try this new short sale system on.
