Chicago Short Sales: What Occupy Wall Street Doesn’t Know About Bankers

Chicago Short Sales: What Occupy Wall Street Doesn’t Know About Bankers

Posted on December 6th, 2011 in All Articles.

Chicago IL – Occupy Wall Street Protestors are not having the best success attacking Wall Street and the banks. But, that is because they are complaining about what they think is wrong with the situation.

If the protestors only knew the level of incompetence in the banks, then they would have a better argument. Here are some of the glaring mistakes we see the bankers make.

1. Doing an incompetent job on short sales and losing tens of thousands of dollars as a result. We have seen many banks turn down short sale offers only to foreclose on the home and sell it for $30,000 less.

2. Kicking people out of their homes only to lose more money as a result. Many people’s homes have dropped in value.

At the same time their income has dropped. But, they can afford to repay the bank, only a lower amount. But, do the banks make the loan modification process easy?

No. Instead, they kick people that could repay them $200,000 out of their homes and then sell the home for $165,000. Again, tens of thousands of dollars are lost.

Yes, I can appreciate that the Occupy Protestors are angry at how hard it is to get a job. But, what about the Americans that are kicked out of their homes?

What about the taxpayers losing thousands bailing out Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and FHA? A large part of that bailout cost is attributable to the lousy job banks are doing on short sales and loan modifications.

I think homeowners and taxpayers getting the raw end of the deal are the silent majority. But, we don’t have time to protest. so, the banks get away with incompetence. Enough of my rant.

Phil Buoscio, Better Living Realty – Buoscio Brokerage, Inc., 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.
