Chicago IL – 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 turned down an offer for $220,000 on the house.
Today it looks like an offer for 185k will be approved. Why is that? The first offer was submitted 4 months ago.
The bank did an appraisal. The appraiser thought the house was worth $265,000. The lender rejected the offer because it didn’t meet their guidelines.
We put the home back on the market and waited for another offer. The property values continued to decline. The next offer came in for $185,000 several months later.
The bank re-opened the short sale process and ordered a new appraisal. This appraiser thought the house was worth $197,000.
The bank approved 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% 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. Thinking about a short sale?

Phillip 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.
