This was a CitiMortgage VA Compromise Sale that I was processing at the same time as another one with Citi in Crestview Florida, so it was like a race! They were both approved in about 60 days and I found the Citi military short sale team easy to work with. Citi’s system includes starting a short sale file with a “processor” who gathers financial and contract paperwork and orders the appraisal. Financial paperwork required from the borrower includes last two years tax returns (signed and dated), hardship letter, PCS orders if that’s the reason for hardship, bank statements, proof of income, financial worksheet, IRS 4506T and more. We also had to provide the listing agreement, preliminary settlement statement, third party authorization, contract and buyer’s pre-approval letter. We speedily provided everything that was required and it took about 45 days for the file to get to the actual negotiator. At that point, the VA liquidation appraisal was back and the value was good, meaning the net proceeds from the sale were at least 85.05% of the value, which is required for a VA Compromise Sale.
You might ask why this was a “short” sale, since the market value was almost the same as the mortgage balance? The sale is still “short” because the “net” proceeds were less than the mortgage balance. Costs to close include pro-rated taxes, Realtor commission, title insurance, documentary stamps on the deed, any buyer credit, and payment to the junior lien. In this case, the sellers chose to pay off the junior lien ahead of time.
The Gulf Breeze VA Compromise Sale in Victorian Village was under contract in three weeks after receiving multiple offers.
