Northeast OH Short Sales: How To Hold Your Bank Accountable

Northeast OH – In our last post, we ranted about how the bankers do a lousy, incompetent job on short sale and loan modification negotiations.

Here is how you can avoid suffering under their incompetence. The key is to hold your bank accountable. Here’s how to do that.

ell them they can do as good of a job or as bad of a job as they want to on your short sale or loan modification. But, if they do not approve it, and lose money as a result, then you will report them.

Here is an example from an email we sent to a short sale negotiator. (Some of the details have been changed to protect the home seller’s identity.)

1. We have had the property at 193 NE Brock Lane for sale for over 4 months. Any buyer who would be interested in that house knows about it. They have decided not to make an offer.

The current offer is for $230,000. That is the highest and best offer we have received on this house. 2. I do not foresee a better offer coming in.

3. I project that if you reject this short sale and foreclose, then the home will sell for around $200,000. Here is how I came up with that number.

A. The local real estate market is declining by about 5% annually.

B. The foreclosure case is going very slow and will probably run for another 9-12 months.

C. Foreclosures sell for about 10% less than other listings.

4. The loan is owned by Fannie Mae. That means they and every American Taxpayer are the ones that stand to lose $30,000 or more. I will be contacting Fannie Mae, all of the members of congress, and my local newspaper.

I will let them know that you, John Doe, rejected this short sale and caused Uncle Sam to lose (another) $30,000.

Do you see how this holds them accountable? This strategy works for loans mods to. Just run the numbers and see what the projected losses are going to be. Thinking about a short sale?
