Northeast OH Short Sale Question: How Come The Bank Won't Approve The Short Sale?

Northeast OH – The Stop Foreclosure Institute recently received a question from another agent named Tom. Here was his question.

Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure.

“I am negotiating a short sale with a bank. The short sale loan is a Veteran’s Administration Insured Loan. An appraisal was completed and sent to the lender. Here is the problem.

The home needs a lot of repairs. However, the appraiser never viewed the inside the house. I feel that the appraisal is innaccurate because he is not factoring in the necessary repairs.

What can we do. I don’t want to see my client lose his home to foreclosure. Tom.”

Here was our answer to Tom’s Question. Tom, here is what I would do.

1. Get your hands on a copy of the appraisal. Compare that with a Comparable Market Analysis done by a realtor. See if there is anything the appraiser overlooked.

2. Determine what other homes in similar condition to this home have sold for. Put together a Comparable Market Analysis using homes in similar condition as comparable sales.

3. If you see a big discrepancy, then contact the appraiser about it. In addition, I would check the VA Appraisal Guidelines. I am guessing that the appraisal guidelines require the appraiser view the inside of the home.

If that is the case, then contact the bank, VA, and the appraiser. Tell them what you have found. Ask for a new, more accurate appraisal that shows the home’s value in it’s current condition. Thinking about a short sale?
