Bergen County Short Sales: Lenders Loses 50k Turning Down Short Sale

This bank’s stockholders are probably unhappy after losing $50,000 over incompetence.

Bergen County NJ – I have a good story today about another bank losing their shirt because their short sale process is so tough to work with.

The bank in question is a large, top 20 American Bank. They actually owned the loan in question. So their stockholders lost 50k from their negligence. Ouch!

Here is the story from a Stop Foreclosure Institute Member. “We met some buyers at an open house. They told us they were buying a house just down the street from one that we had for sale.

They had a contract to buy the house for $275,000. They knew the house was a short sale. They were getting frustrated because they had been waiting for the short sale to be approved.

They had already been waiting for several months with no answer. They mentioned something about 3 mortgages and the junior mortgages were hard to work with.

5-6 months later we noticed that the house was back on the market. They time the asking price was $229,900. It finally sold several months later for $229,000.

That means this bank lost $46,000 on the lower sales price. In addition, we estimate that the lender lost another $15,000 in lost interest income and property taxes.

That means this lender lost $50,000 to $60,000 because their short sale process was so hard to work with. To be honest, I would be kind of embarrassed if I was the CEO of that bank.

The other thing is that the short sale realtor in question was inexperienced. She had very little experience with short sales, which she openly admitted.

If that lender pushes for a deficiency judgment, that agnet’s lack of short sale experience could have cost those home sellers $50,000. Ouch!” Thinking about a short sale?

Important Notice

Robert Clarke, RE/MAX Properties Plus, and the Stop Foreclosure Institute are not affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. Our services have not been reviewed or endorse by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?

Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.

However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.

We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.

This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.

You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.
