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.

Thinking about a short sale? I can help you short sale your property and never pay the bank another penny. Send me an e-mail at evelyn4homes@aol.com. I will contact you for a free consultation.

  • ~ A Dream Come True

    A Dream Come True"In today's economic environment, home buyers (especially first timers like us) need an experienced professional to help them locate the right house, understand financing and legal concerns, and to simply be a reassuring friends when obstacles arise.  We could not have been happier with the guidance provided by Evelyn Santiago in our home buying adventure.  From our first showings in 18 inches of fresh snow, to finally getting keys to our new home, Evelyn was right there with us.  She was immediately available at any time, kept us informed of any information available, and made us feel like the most important clients she had ever worked with. As first time homebuyers, we weren't even sure why type of property we really wanted.  Evelyn was patient is showing us townhomes and single family homes, discussed various advantages and disadvantages of each, and helped us to determine exactly what we were looking for.  As we modified our list of desired traits in a new home, Evelyn was quick to respond by searching the MLS, suggesting properties, and setting up showings.  After seeing twenty-six different properties, we finally found the house that we knew we could call 'Home'.   Her experience and in-depth knowledge of the fluctuating home values enabled her to not only suggest an offer on the house, but she also accurately predicated the price we would pay for the home after final counter-offer negotiations completed!
