Thank you for taking out time and reading this.I have 2 situations, which I thought I would share to get some expert opinions from you all. Both files are placed with an Attorney who stated they do Short Sales daily, keep in mind when reading.......File #1- Short Sale listing from Titanium. Titanium released the file stating it was cancelled by servicer. Listed since Sept 2008. Price $326,000. Contract came in Jan, offer amount $285,000. File sent to Attorney to work, Titanium aware. Values dropped since offer inception. Countrywide was original servicer. They (Countrywide/BoA) finally order appraisal beginning of May. They close file 2 days later. Reopen file. Countered buyer at $325,000 this past week. I searched the comps, no way do they reflect a $325,000 amount, more like $279-$300k. Attorney calls Buyer Agent and tells them the counter, seeing if they come up in price. Then stated they (bank) will not negotiate without our own appraisal, not sure meaning who, seller or buyer. How would you handle this as a Short Sale expert? Has this happened to you before? If they had an apppraisal, they will know value is not there, with only 4 solds since Jan 2009.File #2- Short Sale listing for almost a year. Had initial cash offer, worked file to be told by Wells Fargo offer too low, mind you only $20,000 off what is owed to 1st lien. Second lien to be worked after 1st. Got new offers, now values have dropped, but now only $16,000 off what is owed on 1st lien. Gave file to Attorney to work. Sheriff Sale posted for date, get extension. File worked, told last week, they will not work any short with sale date under 30 days. That this is a Fannie Mae issue, not Wells Fargo. Have date extended, contract killed and new buyer in line who is investor to take over file from Atty. Have you had any Fannie Mae issues as this, and if so, how did you handle? Where do you call? How can we get Fannie to accept offer and sale?As I type this, I realize I should not have Attorney work anything anymore. I worked one myself without her, got 7% commission and $1000 bonus approved in less than 3 weeks, got bank to pay back association fees and water/sewer charges too. But, these other issues are new to me so I ask for any input you may have so I know what to do come Monday......P.S. has anyone heard that Fannie and Freddie are not allowed anymore to negotiate our commissions? Input if so as this is what was told to me by my Broker this past week too.........thanks in advance!
