Sandestin Villa Lago Short Sale Approved by Bank of America

Sandestin short sale agent

Villa Lago Lot 127 Baytowne Loop, Sandestin Florida has been approved for short sale by Bank of America. This was a lengthy approval time frame, but we got it done!

Here are the details:

Original purchase price: $300,000 appr

List price: $65,000 appr

Mortgage holder: Bank of America

Seller Contribution: $8000 appr

Waiver of Deficiency: yes

This one of my longer recent Bank of America short sales. They clocked in at almost six months from contract to approval. I had to escalate the file a few times via Bank of America’s Twitter Team. It did receive attention, as a Vice President called me to follow up. The Bank of  America negotiator worked hard to reduce the seller’s cash contribution to get him a waiver of deficiency. This was negotiated down from over $20,000 to about $8,000. The Sandestin homeowners association and Villa Lago homeowners association also reduced their balances to make this sale happen, but Bank of America paid over $10,000 in dues to complete the transaction. The buyer contributed a little toward the HOA balances, as well.  In the end, the seller was delighted. This Villa Lago property on Baytowne Loop should close in a few weeks.
