Step Two To Get A Northeast OH Short Sale Approved In 90 Days Or Less

Northeast OH – We are explaining the steps to approving a short sale in 90 days or less.

Today, we’re going to explain Step 2: Influence the BPO. A BPO is a bank’s version of an appraisal. They use that property valuation to make a decision to approve or deny a short sale offer.

Many BPOs are inaccurate. As a result, many short sales are unnecessarily rejected. The banks lose even more money when they property sells later on.

The problem is that the people doing the BPOs are rushing thru them. They are visiting 100 or more homes per month and preparing an in depth property evaluation on each one.

That isn’t always enough time to properly evaluate each property. As a result, many BPOs are inaccurate. An inaccurate BPO often leads to a failed short sale. Let me explain why.

If a BPO says that a home is worth $250,000, but the actual value is only $220,000, then the short sale will probably be turned down. You the homeowner risks losing your home to foreclosure.

In one example, the people doing BPOs on a short sale consistently stated that the property was worth $325,000 to $375,000.

Over the course of a year of being on the market, the most a buyer offered to pay was $275,000. But, the bank wouldn’t accept their offer because they thought the house was being sold for less than it was worth.

The market continued to decline. The realtor continued to market the property. However, now buyers were only offering $230,000. The short sale bank finally accepted that offer.

Inaccurate BPOs cost that lender $45,000. In addition, they put a seller at risk of losing their home to foreclosure. This is why your agent must influence the BPO. Here is how they do that.

Your agent does not allow the person doing the BPO into the house without their permission. They meet the person at the house and tell them why the home is selling for the price it is selling for.

They explain the market conditions and explain what they feel the home is worth. The give that person their own opinion of the value of the home.

Many times that person will use the information they have gathered for them and turn it into the bank. That gives you a much better chance of a successful short sale. Thinking about a short sale?
