Wells Fargo Approves Fort Walton Beach Short Sale - Swift and Strange


I just received approval for a Wells Fargo short sale in the Bayou Subdvision, Fort Walton Beach Florida. The approval was a swift 30 days, but the journey getting there was strange. Here is a summary

9/29 – Short Sale package faxed to Wells Fargo

10/5 – Broker Price Opinon completed

10/22- Negotiator asks for $1000 cash contribution from seller. Seller asks if buyer can pay this fee, negotiator says “YES”. Buyer agrees to reduction in buyer credit.

10/23- Revised Settlement Statement (HUD) sent to Wells Fargo increasing their net by $1000 by reducing buyer credit

10/24- Negotiator says “unacceptable”, seller must pay this fee (even though she said buyer could pay this fee earlier).

Seller says he'll pay the $1000, but asks if he will get still deficiency judgment on the remainder of the loss? Negotiator says “YES”. Seller was then going to cancel the contract. I advised seller Wells Fargo's standard approval letter does not seek a deficiency, so let's proceed and see what we get.

10/30- Short sale approved – no deficiency

We got the result we wanted. but it sure was a strange journey!

If you are considering short sale to avoid foreclosure, consider hiring an experienced Fort Walton Beach short sale agent.


It's Wendy!
