Hi, If you are working with a competent Realtor who knows the process, in most cases, you will be way out ahead if you do the short sale. With a short sale, we can in many cases not only sell your home, and save you from the negative dings of foreclosure pn your credit, we can also get you some cash for "keys".... In most cases, we also get the deficiency judgment waived, so you do not owe the bank any money once we are finished. I work with an attorney who helps streamline the process and keeps you out of bankruptcy while we go through the process. I generally prepare all the paperwork and stay on top of the attorney who will be speaking with the bank. As a team, we get it done. Most banks are much better today, than years ago. However, the homeowner gets very little respect from the banks, so work with a professional who knows the system, and will get you through the process.... more

THEY ARE SOMEWHAT A NEW BANK STRUCTURED THROUGH WASHINGTON â€” A seven member investor group (billionaire George Soros and Dell Inc. founder Michael Dell) agreed to purchase. Indy Mac Bank is one of the largest casualties of all time and tied to the housing bust. Estimated at near $14 billion. Indy Mac, which specialized in loans made with little down payment or proof of assets. Thatâ€™s hard to believe as regulators let it go unchecked. Bank was seized by the government in July after a run on the bank as the U.S. housing market collapsed. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. statements showed a holding company and private equity firm Dune Capital Management, agreed to buy Indy Mac.
The ability for Indy Mac bank to raise capital and mange losses will necessitate avoidance of short sales and modifications. You go through "He.ll to get a file approved, then receive an offer then get a sign off by another person who will lose the file (yeah yeah ) and then MAYBE ! Fannie AND FHLMC YES MAYBE. TOXIC SUP PRIE LOANS . . . NO WAY! THEY MUST FORECLOSE
