Yes, Banks Are Approving Short Sales in Chicago

Posted on January 3rd, 2011 in All Articles, Short Selling/Buying.
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.
