This Blue Dolphin condo on Okaloosa Island Florida was just approved for short sale by Aurora Loan Services. Blue Dolphin is a small gulf-front complex on Abalone Court, Fort Walton Beach FL.
The original loan amount was $604,000 in 2007. Today, market value is about $340,000. Aurora Loan Services was slow to approve this Okaloosa Island short sale. They were not familiar with short-term vacation rentals, and continually asked for proof of rental income and leases. Typical short-term rentals don’t have standard leases, since they are only for a day or two at a time. They are really more like hotel reservations. After numerous faxes and requests for documentation (Aurora took a week at time to “review” any fax), we finally were able to get a negotiator. The short sale was approved in about 90 days.
Here is the typical short sale approval language for Aurora Loan Services. Note the reference to 1099-C for cancelled debt to be issued, as well as how Aurora reports to credit bureaus..
If you are thinking about short sale to avoid foreclosure, be sure to contact an attorney and an experienced Fort Walton Beach short sale agent.
