Windward Short Sale, Bluewater Bay Florida – Approved Compass Bank

Windward Bluewater Bay Short Sale
This home in the Windward subdivision of Bluewater Bay, Niceville, Florida was just approved for short sale.  Find the details below.

Senior Lien: Wells Fargo
Balance: $275,000
Junior Lien: Compass Bank
Balance: $115,000
Original Purchase Price: $485,000
Market Value: $290,000
Status: Short Sale Approved by both lienholders

Notes: Wells Fargo uses the Equator Platform for short sale processing. It is an online program where the short sale listing Realtor uploads seller financial documents, preliminary settlement figures and more for analysis by Wells Fargo. Other lenders share this platform, such as Bank of America and GMAC, but Wells Fargo’s requirements are more tedious.

This was my first short sale with BVVA Compass Bank, the junior lienholder. It was interesting. The institution’s personnel are pleasant. Their short sale policy, however, requires that the file be in their internal “charge off” department before they will negotiate any terms.  They will not speed up their internal timelines to process a short sale, without exception. It is not the case that they have a plethora of files, it is just their timeline, which can take months, and they stick to it. This caused a long delay in the process, as we had Wells Fargo approval in about 45 days.  Compass does its short sale processing through email, fax and phone, and it is fairly easy to get ahold of a human being. They appear to favor promissory notes and cash contribution combinations, but will negotiate.

It’s Wendy!
