I completed a short sale after 18 months of working on it. Chase was the mortgage company and was very slow in reviewing paperwork. The representative was helpful and pleasant but time was going by while the mortgage was not getting paid. You would think the bank would hurry the process so they get paid quicker but not the case. This process should have taken 3 months but here is what happened.
Put house on market for price I felt was market price
Submit requested documentation from seller
Received offer from buyer and after my seller accepted it, submitted to Chase for review.
Chase ordered a BPO (Brokers Price Opinion) to make sure my fair market price I had chosen for the listing price and the offer price were close to what their BPO is.
During that review period . . . 30 days went by
All of sudden Chase asked me for more documents from the seller. (they could have asked for them after they received the other documents in the beginning of process.
Wait another 30 days
Buyer decides doesn't want to wait any longer.
Contract falls apart
Back on Market . . . receive another offer right away, seller signs and back to Chase
Another 30 days
Covid 19 hits USA
Buyer nervous of market conditions and walks away from contract
Back on the market
New contract comes in, seller signs and back to Chase it goes
30 days goes by
New BPO is ordered
Another 30 days goes by and gets approval . . . wait for it
Loan gets transferred to Carrington Mortgage and cancels the short sale approval we had.
Back to the beginning
Needless to say Carrington Mortgage completed the short sale and we closed within 30 days
Short sale complete
Not all short sales are easy but we can still complete them if everyone is working together!
