Bellevue Short Sales: What is a BPO and why does it matter on a short sale?

Bellevue WA – Some agents hate short sales. Why? Because they don't understand them. So, don't believe them when they tell you that short sales are impossible.

I will explain what causes their problems in today's post.

There are two things you must understand if you are doing short sales.

They are BPOs and HUD-1s. A BPO is what the short sale lender uses to determine the value of the property.

BPO stands for "Broker's Price Opinion." They are what another real estate agent (Broker) thinks a property is worth.

Basically the agent gives their opinion of the value of the property. "I think it is worth 300k", they put on the report. Lenders accept or reject short sale offers based on the BPO value.

Bellevue Short Sales: What is a BPO and why does it matter on a short sale?

If the agent has given a value of 300k, then a short sale lender will not accept a sales price of 250k. The problem is that, in my opinion, sometimes the values are inaccurate.

I have seen agents drive 50 miles away to evaluate a property. They go to a place where they do not sell real estate. As a result they are not familiar with the local marketplace.

Because of this I always try to meet the agent doing the BPO at the property.

I explain the market value to them and tell them what is happening with the property.

I explain exactly why the property is selling for the sale price.

I tell them what buyers have said about the property and why it isn't selling for a higher price.

This helps them to give an accurate value.

The lender gets an accurate value and is able to make a better decision on the short sale.

Bellevue Short Sales: What is a BPO and why does it matter on a short sale?

Our services have not been reviewed or endorse by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales.

Why? Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.

However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.

We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home.

Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.

This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision.

Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.

You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval.

If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee.

We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.
