Short Sale Promissory Notes: Getting More Common

Do you have a Short Sale with a second mortgage? Or perhaps PMI involved? Or Fannie Mae? Two of my Destin Florida real estate sellers have recently been asked to pay up. Here's the scenario:

Santa Rosa Beach FL Short Sale:
Owes $325,000 on first - Everhome Mortgage
Owes $90,000 on second - Citi
House value and offer - $225,000
Citi Says: "Pay back $16,000 (of $90,000 loss) at 0% interest over 80 months" Also want $3000 from first.

Destin FL Short Sale:
Owes $200,000 on first - Countrywide
Owes $200,000 on second - Countrywide
House value and offer - $190,000
Countrywide via Fannie Mae PMI, says "Pay back $10,000 (of $200,000 loss) at 0% interest over 72 months. payment $139/ month" and they'll approve sale.

Are these reasonable requests? It seems so, in light of the tremendous losses involved. Expect to see more of these scenarios in the future.

It's Wendy!
