B of A streamlining short sale process Decisions on offers may be trimmed to 20 days or less Lowball offers, if presented correctly, can be successful. Bank of America says it’s making changes to its short-sale procedures that will shorten decision times on short sale offers to 20 days, down from 45 days or longer. The new task flow in Bank of America’s short-sale management platform, Equator, will enable short-sale specialists to conduct tasks like document collection, valuations and underwriting simultaneously. When buyers walk, agents will have five days instead of 14 days to submit a backup offer. Bank of America is requiring a new third-party authorization form for short sales initiated beginning April 14. When the changes to Equator take effect Saturday, five documents will be req...

    Over the years it has become apparent that the biggest complaint the real estate community heard from the tenants renting in Sea Isle City was the difficulty getting in and getting out of the real estate offices during check-in and check-out. Because of the high volume of cars on the island it became necessary to implement our own version of express check-in on Saturday's at The Landis Co., Realtors. Over the years we streamlined the check-in process to be as efficient as possible, but as we grew to the point we were checking in 100's of customers from 2pm until 5pm. At that point management got together and came up with The Landis Co. check-in program. Starting around 2pm our agents arms with the check-in packets out back and have the tenants cars line up in two rows and we can han...
