This Week's Top Short Sale News

Great news for our military members!!

June 21, 2012

Under the new policy Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will not pursue a deficiency judgment or any cash contribution or promissory note from members of the military with a change in duty station for any property purchased on or before June 30, 2012. Service members must have a Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac loan to be eligible.

 This Week's Superstar Tip

What types of transactions are generally not covered under RESPA?

  •  An all cash sale
  • A sale where there's private financing (seller financing, money from a family member).

Now folks, if you handle Short Sales for a living this can be something you can utilize in your business. When RESPA does not apply is there anything else that would prohibit you from paying the 2nd "Off the HUD"? I don't think so. As long as the 1st agrees to it. And I question whether or not they even have to agree to it. Remember there's a difference between disclosure and agreement.


Our family began the journey to buy our home in October.We found a house that was perfect, except it was a short sale. We decided to make an offer. Unfortunately, we had no idea the roller coaster we were boarding. Neither agent had ever closed a Short Sale and it was BofA with a 2nd at a local bank. If we had not found Short Sale Superstars I know we would have walked away. The deal fell through once so we started over in March and finally closed Tuesday! It was wonderful to have such a wealth of information here because every situation we were up against we found information on this site. I'm sure both REALTORS (R) were sick of hearing, "from what I have read we can . . . ". Also a special thank you to Bryant who helped answer many questions in the home stretch. As a buyer of a short sale this website is amazing. Thank you for helping our family buy truly our dream home. Adam S.

Advanced Short Sale Training

This sound familiar? You’ve never had to deal with a short sale in your life – until a few years ago, when foreclosures became so common it was rare that you had a seller without one. Now you can no longer avoid short sales.


So you sign up and get your CDPE and your SFR designations. Maybe you have even closed on dozens of short sales. But still...........'re missing something. You are struggling when it comes to dealing with the lenders. You're stressing out over your transactions. And no one seems to be able to tell you how to do it quickly, with no stress.
