4818 Young Rd., Crestview FL – VA Compromise Sale Approved

Coronado Village Crestview VA Compromise Sale

This VA Compromise Sale in Coronado Village, Crestview Florida, was just approved.  Here are the details of this short sale at 4818 Young Rd.:

Senior Lien (Mortgage): Citi

Balance: $148,000 appr.

Junior Lien: none

Market Value: $89,000 appr.

Time for Approval: 7 weeks

This Crestview VA Compromise Sale with Citi Mortgage went very smoothly! One of the keys to getting this Coronado Village property approved was a good VA liquidation appraisal, because the net proceeds from the sale had to be at least 85.05% of the appraised value.  If the proceeds were not enough, the contract would have to be renegotiated or the VA Compromise Sale could be denied.  So that the value was not overinflated, I ensured the VA appraiser had a copy of the roof repair bid that had been obtained by the buyer.  He took that into consideration when coming up with a value.

Green Tree, USAA Approve Crestview FL – Eglin PCS Short Sale – Beaver Creek

Green Tree PCS short sale Crestview Florida

This Green Tree and USAA short sale in the Beaver Creek subdivision, Crestview Florida, has been approved for short sale and closed today. The home at 127 Mill Pond Cove, had a senior lien serviced by Green Tree and was a Fannie Mae loan.  The junior lien was USAA.  In this case, Permament Change of Station (PCS) orders from Eglin Air Force Base was the reason for short sale. PCS orders are considered an acceptable hardship by Fannie Mae, who announced this year that there would be no cash contribution or promissory note required from the PCSing seller if the home was purchased before June 20, 2012 and had been a primary residence.

This Crestview Florida short sale was initially counter offered by Fannie Mae via Green Tree at a price much higher than the contract price.  I challenged the valuation through Fannie Mae’s Homepath website by providing comparable sales that supported the original offer.  One week later, Fannie Mae agreed to lower the price after reviewing my data.

This home at 127 Mill Pond, in Beaver Creek, Crestview Florida, sold for $120,700.

Here is the Fannie Mae bulletin that addresses the short sale PCS hardship and seller contribution.

Crestview Florida VA Compromise Sale Netting UNDER 88.13%

VA Compromise Sales

I just got an amazing approval on a Crestview Florida VA Compromise Sale from BB&T!  You know the Veterans Administration requirement that the net proceeds of the sale be no less tham 88.13% of the appraised value? And the requirement that the VA Compromise Sale appraisal is firm for six months? This was a breakthrough approval that was about $25,000 less than 88.13% of the appraised value!  How did I achieve this?

First, some background. The Crestview Florida home on a few acres needed work. There were signs of a previous roof leak and rodent damage. This was detailed in a home inspection report for a buyer who had “walked”.  His offer was the one that triggered the VA liquidation appraisal that was ordered by BB&T.  I had noted the problems in the MLS, including a copy of the inspection report with the buyer’s permission. These facts were apparently ignored by the VA appraiser.

After three months, and excellent communication with the BB&T negotiator, I precariously lowered the price. Yes, LOWER than what would net the holy 88.13%. She said she was a firm believer in doing anything you could to help the military servicemember and she would fight for an approval even if we were low. (Go BB&T!) Finally, an offer came in.  To support our case of lower value, I provided the negotiator with a report of all the feedback from showings, such as:

5/16/2013 There seems to be quite a bit of water damage to the ceiling in the front bedroom. This buyer is retiring and does not want to “fix anything up”. I don’t think we will be writing an offer

4/29/2013 the house smells like animal pee and it’s strong. This turned the buyer off and he’s looking elsewhere. I’ve shown this house twice now and it does not show well. Not sure what can be done other than sealing the floors and putting in new carpet.

4/18/2013 their concern is the roof it appears there is an active leak and erosion

In addition, I provided a copy of the previous buyer’s home inspection. The BB&T rep sent that along with the contract, HUD, buyer pre-approval and home inspection to the VA. She said the VA tech replied “Rodents! This cannot be good!”.  72 hours later, the VA Compromise Sale was APPROVED.

Many short sale lenders don’t assign a “permanent” negotiator like BB&T to a VA Compromise Sale. This direct line of communication and caring were critical in getting the approval. What can you do if you are dealing with any other lender, such as Bank of America or Wells Fargo, who are much more immutable about VA Compromise Sales? Give me a call!
