Bank of America offers up to $20,000 Short Sale Incentive

I am sure that you have heard the news!  BOA is offering up to $20,000 as an incentive to distressed homeowners willing to explore a short sale as a foreclosure alternative.  This is intended to motivate homeowners to work with BOA on a pre-offer short sale.  These programs, like the Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternative (HAFA) may also offer the homeowner the another incentive; the deficiency may be waived!

In order to qualify for the Bank of America Incentive, the property has to be in Florida, the short sale has to be initiated between September 26th and November 30th, the homeowner has to qualify for the HAFA (or BOA short sale) program, the home must be successfully closed before August 31, 2012 and a few other eligibility requirements. 

If you are currently having trouble making your mortgage payments and would like more information about this and other Short Sale Incentive programs, please call me, Maureen Legac, right away (941-773-0668) or visit my website www.mortgage-foreclosure-help.com

What is Short Selling

Although Short Sales have been around for a very long time, it is only in the past few years that they have become so commonplace. Most people will never encounter a short sale in their lifetime. For those that wind up in a short sale situation, the process can be very intimidating and extremely frightening.

So, what is a short sale? A short sale occurs when you ask the bank that is holding the mortgage or mortgages (sometimes multiple banks with multiple mortgages) to accept an offer for the sale of the home that is less than the amount owned on the mortgage or mortgages.

The short sale process varies by bank, by the mortgage type (conventional mortgage, Fannie or Freddie backed mortgage, private mortgage), by the number of mortgages, if the seller has PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance), whether or not the property being sold is an investment property or a primary residence and many other factors. Each situation is unique and each result is different. The results could even change if the buyer changes (if the first buyer decides not to proceed so you find another buyer – and a new negotiator handles the file and has different criteria for the approval).

We have seen the banks forgiving a portion (and sometimes all) of the difference between what the home sells for at the short sale and what the seller owed on the mortgage. Again, this varies based on the circumstances surrounding the sale. Even on investment properties, we have seen the banks ask for a contribution from the seller and forgive the balance.

The timeline for the short sale process can vary too. I have had files close in as little as 6 weeks (usually with property that had a buyer that did not complete the process and a new buyer submits an offer). I have also had files take over a year (this was when the banks were absorbing other banks and files were lost…this does not seem to be the situation now). It is more likely that the process will take anywhere between 4 and 6 months – from the time the property is listed until the time the sale is closed.

Can you buy a home after a short sale? Fannie Mae has stated that they will consider loaning money for home purchases as soon as 2 years after the short sale was completed. This would all depend on the circumstances surrounding the short sale and the credit score of the short sale seller.
