Comments Off on Short Sales: What to do after the lender rejects the short sale offer

IL – What do you do when the house won’t sell for any more money, but the bank keeps on rejecting the offers? You can give up, but the seller may lose their home to foreclosure.

Ouch! Why not escalate the file and get it approved. Here’s an example of how it worked for the Stop Foreclosure Institute.

We had a house on the market for 4 months. We started the price at 200k and slowly brought it down to $169,900. We finally got an offer for $159,000. Since I knew the bank’s appraiser’s valuation, I knew the offer wouldn’t work.

The bank’s appraiser said the house was worth $195,000. Yes, after we had had the house on the market for 4 months. Because I knew the loan owner’s guidelines, I knew that that current offer at $159,000 didn’t have a shot at getting accepted.

In order to get this file thru, I had two things to do.

1. Convince the bank that their valuation was inaccurate and that they should order a new value.

2. Escalate the file.

To handle Part 1, I send my own opinion of value, also called a Comparable Market Analysis, along with comparable homes for sale. I explained that the valuation they were using was inaccurate and that they needed to order another one.

Here is what I did for Part 2. Then, I asked for their supervisor’s contact info. Remember, most of our communications are e-mail. Two-thirds of the time they will e-mail me back the supervisor’s info. The other one-third of the time they will just start doing a better job on the file.

If the new bank appraiser’s valuation comes back within range, they will approve the file and we can close. On the subject house, the new appraiser’s valuation came back within range. We received an approval on the short sale and it closed a little while later.

  • ~ Closed in Less Than 90 Days

    Closed in Less Than 90 Days"Recently my mom passed away suddenly and unexpectedly.   Being an only child her death devasted me and left me with a multitude of things to take care of and decisions to make.  My husband, Mark, was a tremendous help. When we realized we needed to sell her home in Oswego, we turned to Evelyn for help.  She was sensitive to what we were going through.  She walked us through each and every part of the process from cleaning some things out, cleaning up, staging and helping us to decide on a listing price.  She was fair, honest and compassionate every single step of the way. Because of her knowledge of the real estate market my mom's home sold (and closed) in under 90 days!!  In todays market that was fantastic.  We truly believed it would not have sold as quickly if it were not for Evelyn  and her expertise.
