Northeast OH Short Sale Question: Lender Won’t Approve The Short Sale. What Should I Do?

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

“Here’s a question for you. I have a short sale with two offers. The appraisal was close to the sales price and the inspection was good.

However, the bank calls me and says, “Sorry, you can’t short sale the house because this is a recourse loan for 5 years.” I did some research and the loan is owned by Fannie Mae.

The sellers received foreclosure papers a week later. Fannie May says that the lender can approve the short sale. But, the lender says they can’t without Fannie Mae’s permission.

Needless to say, I am confused. Any thoughts on how this could have a happy ending? Sylvia.”

Here was our answer to Sylvia’s Question. Sylvia, That is so frustrating! I think someone at GMAC is being an idiot. I’ve never heard of anything like this happening.

You are being lied to. Call the lender’s short sale phone number and ask to speak to a supervisor.

Then, ask them: “Are you someone who can speak with authority and actually knows what they’re talking about when it comes to Fannie Mae Short Sale Guidelines?”

If that person can’t speak with authority, then ask for the manager of the loss mitigation department. Tell that person the situation and ask them what is going on. That should solve the problem.
