Bank of America changing short sale system, the good and bad

Bank of America working on short sale practices. Message to BoA… Feed the animals.

Kristin and Dean recently went to a seminar put on by Bank of America discussing the past, present and future of short sales. Bank of American has admitted their mistakes in the past. It would be kind of hard not to admit them, just search for short sale nightmare stories and you are going to run hundreds of horror stories and most of them will involve Bank of America.

Two issues Bank of America made it clear they did not really want to discuss were principle reductions and strategic defaults. They have basically said any strategic default is just going to declined unless the seller is willing to come to the table with money. We understand why they say that, they do not want to encourage people to walk away, but at the same time they are going to need to deal with reality in Arizona.

Someone in the East Valley who wants to short sale their house as part of a strategic default plan is going to either be allowed to short sale their house or they are going to let it go to foreclosure. If that house goes to foreclosure they are likely going to receive as much as 20-30% less for that house after all costs are factored. It is fine to stand on principle, but at some point you need to realize in a state with anti-deficiency laws it is going to make sense to do what you can to stem losses.

If you have any other questions or thoughts email Kristin LaVanway and Dean Ouellette of the East Valley Team.

  1. The irony of BofA conducting a short sale seminar does not escape me. I’m thinking you and Kristin could have schooled them in how to get things done…

  2. You’re a very good writer, I found this post very informative, I have added your site to my favorites and will be sure to come back to read more. Thank you.

  3. There are some stocks which are considered high
    yield stocks, but they usually are also higher risk stocks.
    Study the history of these companies to determine their projected growth.
    It is possible to invest in stocks with a great return,
    but there is more risk involved with many of those companies.

  4. Cocktail mixing class – On the hen party, you
    and the girls are most probably gojng to enjoy a cocktail or two, so why not
    have a whirl at mixing them yourselves. There are facilities and arrangements for fun and
    thrilling activities here. This is a great role for a younger member
    of the wedding parrty who is old enough to drive, but too young to drink.
