” When the bank says the file should be going to an investor soon what does that mean?” Georgia E.
Here is the answer. It means that whoever ultimately owns the loan will make the decision. For example, you might be negotiating the short sale with Wells Fargo.
However Wells Fargo may not own the loan. (Around 80% of all the loans they service are owned by someone else.) Wells Fargo will take all of the short sale documentation and send it to the actual loan owner.
(The actual loan owner could be anyone from Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Goldman Sachs, a Pension Fund, or another Wall Street Entity.)
That loan owner will review the short sale file themselves. Then, they will either approve the short sale or deny it. If they deny it, then they will usually let you know why.
Then you can find out the reason they denied the short sale and re-apply. Often they want more money for the house, a missing document, of some other item.
It is a popular misconception that banks own all the loans they handle. Little do most people know that most loans have been sold to a third party.
Many experts agree that this was actually a good thing because it spread the losses across a lot of different people in the economy.
If all the losses has been with 3-4 large banks, then those banks would have experienced crippling losses. Thinking about a short sale?

Tony Hunthausen, Remax Select One, 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.
