Northeast OH Short Sales: Do Short Sales Really Take 6-8 Months?


Northeast OH – We received a lot of feedback from yesterday’s post.

One agent said, “You obviously don’t know what you are talking about. Bank X won’t give us a response on the file and we have been waiting 5 months for an answer.

How dare you suggest that I am incompetent because they haven’t replied?” (The bank was a large national bank whose name I changed for this post.)

First off, we are not saying that all agents are incompetent. However, we do see some agents with no experience with short sales attempting to sell them.

Here is the issue. Banks do have responsibilities. In 80% of cases, the bank we negotiate with does not own the loan. That means they don’t take any of the loss from short sales that aren’t handled properly.

In order to reduce losses, the people that do own the loans have laid out specific guidelines. Those guidelines state exactly how the bank should process the short sale.

In addition, they give deadlines for how long it takes to process the file. For example, VA gives 45 days for a bank to process and approve or deny a short sale.

If the bank doesn’t meet that requirement, then they can be fined by VA or lose their Mortgage Servicing Rights. By the way, those rights are worth $1,000 to $5,000 per loan they handle.

We hold banks accountable on short sales. It is their job to handle the short sales quickly and competently.

If they don’t do their job, then we let the people that own the loan know about it. Thinking about a short sale?
