811 Overbrook Dr., Fort Walton Beach FL Short Sale Approved

Overbrook Fort Walton Beach short sale

 

This short sale at 811 Overbrook Dr., Fort Walton Beach Florida was just approved! Here are the details:

Senior Lien (first mortgage): PNC

Balance: $120,000 appr

Junior Lien (second mortgage): Bank of America

Balance: $90,000 appr

Market Value:  $190,000 app

This short sale was only “short” to the junior lien, Bank of America. What does that mean?  If a home sale nets more than a senior lien’s balance, they are paid in full, therefore they are not “short”. The junior lien will get whatever leftover proceeds there are after paying the senior lien and other closing costs, such as title insurance, commission, pro-rated taxes, state transfer taxes, etc.  In many cases, the junior lien in this type of transaction gets a substantially higher payment than a regular short sale, where typically all liens are short. In a normal short sale, the senior lien will pay the junior lien a standard amount, such as 10% of their balance or a HAFA amount of $8,500.00, for example.

This Overbrook subdivision, Fort Walton Beach Florida, short sale netted Bank of America about $50,000, with which they were quite happy.  They approved the sale in 45 days.

Green Tree Approves Victoria Gardens, Fort Walton Beach FL Short Sale

Green Tree Fort Walton short sale

 

This home at 334 Victoria Ave., Fort Walton Beach, Florida was approved for short sale and just closed.  Here are the details:

Senior Lien: Green Tree Servicing

Senior Lien balance:  $156,000

Junior Lien:  Green Tree Servicing

Junior Lien balance:  $40,000

Current Value: $135,000

Hardship: Military PCS (Permanent Change of Station from Eglin Air Force Base)

The senior Green Tree loan was backed by Fannie Mae, which considers military PCS a long-term hardship, offering short sale as an option. We had to provide a copy of the PCS orders to Green Tree to support the case.  I always recommend providing as much detail as possible to justify a hardship in a short sale situation, so we send in PCS orders automatically. Both the senior and junior lien for this Fort Walton Beach home were approved within 60 days. There was no deficiency judgment, no cash contribution and no promissory note due from the seller.

334 Victoria Ave., Fort Walton Beach Florida sold for $135,900.

If you are in a military PCS situation and are considering short sale,  if your loan is not backed by VA (VA Compromise Sale), find out if your loan is backed by Fannie Mae. Here is the link to the Fannie Mae loan look-up.  If it is a Fannie Mae loan, you can contact the Fannie Mae Help Center or give me a call to discuss your options.

497 Managua Way, Mary Esther FL – VA Compromise Sale Pending

Fort Walton VA Compromise Sale

This short sale home at 497 Managua Way, Mary Esther Florida, is under contract as a VA Compromise Sale with a PHH mortgage.  Mary Esther, located near Navarre’s Hurlburt Field and Fort Walton Beach’s Eglin Air Force Base, is a military community that offers access to the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, boating, golf, shopping and major airports.  This property backed up to Eglin reservation for privacy.

What is a  VA Compromise Sale? It is the Veteran Administration’s version of a short sale.  One important point about a VA Compromise Sale is that you must have a hardship. What is a hardship? It could be PCS (permanent change of station), divorce, job transfer, medical expenses, death of a breadwinner, unemployment, reduction in pay and more.

With a VA Compromise Sale, a portion of your VA entitlement won’t be available for a future home purchase unless you reimburse the Veteran’s Administration. You may still have sufficient entitlement remaining to buy another home with a VA loan, however. You can find out by calling the VA directly.  Another point is that your credit will be affected with a VA Compromise Sale. It may be recorded as “settled for less”. Your FICO score could drop 50-200 points.  It may take you a couple of years to rebuild your credit.
