Houston TX – The Stop Foreclosure Institute recently received a question from another agent. Apparently they were being mislead on a short sale by a large national lender.
Here is the question we received: “Do you have a number to contact Fannie Mae? The bank (Large National Bank) will not allow the seller to not do a short sale and agree to repay the loss on a promissory note.
She said that she has to talk to the investor which is Fannie Mae. My sellers just wants to sell and move on with their life. Janet.”
Here was our response. I understand the logic of what your seller is trying to do. They think that they can just sell the home for less thant it’s worth, sign a promissory note for the difference, and move on with their lives.
The sad reality is that life’s not that simple, especially when you are dealing with bankers. Before they make any changes on anything, they want to make sure that everything is ok.
In order to make sure everything is ok, they will have to process the sale as a short sale. That is why they demand before they will transfer the upside down debt to a promissory note.
They always like to keep things at the status quo. Any big changes need to be very carefully evaluated. It’s just the way bankers work.
So, if your seller wants to sell and repay the debt on a promissory note, then they will have to go thru the formal short sale process. It’s the only option that I see. Thinking about a short sale?
When we talk, I will explain how the process works in detail and answer any questions you may have. Or, if you prefer, you can call me at (281) 602-8050

Alice Monroe, Corali Realty, 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.
