Huntington Beach CA – The Stop Foreclosure Institute sometimes receives e-mails from people that short sales are impossible. Well, short sales are not impossible. They just take time. Here is an example.

The Stop Foreclosure Institute was attempting a short sale on a property. The bank initially turned down an offer for $550,000 on the house.

Today it looks like an offer for 530K will be approved. Why is that? The first offer was submitted 3 months ago.

The bank initially only did a drive-by broker price opinion (BPO) to get their value. The broker thought the house was worth $629,000. The lender rejected the offer because it didn’t meet their guidelines. The buyer was scared off and walked, not even wanting to counter the bank.

We put the home back on the market and obtained another solid offer now for $530,000. The bank re-opened the short sale process and now ordered a full interior BPO. This broker thought the house was worth $550,000. A full interior BPO is much more reliable and property values have also continued to decline..

The bank now looks to be approving the short sale offer. As you can see, short sales can get approved with a little luck, time, and persistence. With some luck, the bank will see that the short sale makes financial sense and approve it.

We’ve seen over 50{243e39203482156bb9924d7f8b1f6734c7293e0292344a18d64b40b1d879020b} of our short sales sell, get approved, and close in 3-4 months. And that’s the first attempt at negotiations.

The majority of the remainder will get approved, but we will have to submit more offers.
