The BPO is another agent’s opinion of the value of your home. The bank will willingly sell your home on a short sale if they think the home is selling for close to its fair market value.
The BPO is what they use to determine the fair market value. But, most agents that do BPOs do a lot of them. They may not spend a lot of time evaluating your home and the value.
Some of them turn in 100-200 valuations a month and not every one is accurate. That is why it is important that your agent make saure they understand what your home is worth.
They should meet the agent at your home and explain what the home is worth. That is called “influencing the BPO.”
An hour spent influencing a BPO will save countless hours later escalating a file or negotiating more offers. Yes, maybe I shouldn’t be saying this. But, it’s true.
If the BPO says the home is worth close to the short sale price, then the short sale will be approved quickly and easily. Thinking about a short sale? Make sure to visit Chicago’s short sale expert at www.ShortSaleSuperMan.com for information and hundreds of articles on Chicago short sales.

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.
