Northeast OH Short Sales: Why The Lack of Accountability Has Hurt The Housing Market & US Economy

Northeast OH – The National Consumer Law Center wrote a White Paper on how banks handle loan modifications, short sales and foreclosures.

They titles their White Paper “Why Servicers Foreclose When They Should Modify and Other Puzzles of Servicer Behavior.” Check out the White Paper at this link:

The “servicer” they are referring to is a bank that is handling a mortgage for another entity.

As an example, around 80% of all of Bank of America’s mortgages are not owned by Bank of America. Instead, they are owned by another entity like Fannie Mae or a hedge fund.

Bank of America is simply handling the accounting, tax filings, and the foreclosure and collections process. The Consumer Law Center thought it was “puzzling” that servicers preferred foreclosure over loan modification.

The reason that the servicers prefer it is because it is less work and they make more money in the process. But, I don’t think it is puzzling. Why not?

Because there is almost zero accountability! The owners of these mortgages never check in on the process. They don’t know that a servicer denied a short sale offer for $385,000, only to see the property sell for $230,000 as a foreclosure.

Because they are not checking on things Uncle Sam and the owners of these loans are seeing huge, unnecessary losses. Pretty sad, isn’t it? Thinking about a short sale?
