I am an approved BofA short sale agent. I can submit an offer on their special short sale website. If the property is already under contract, we could try and get you in a backup position, so that if the original offer falls out, you could be next in line. Unfortunately, the bank will not give out any information regarding the current offer as it is considered confidential information. Short sales are different than foreclosures. I am a CDPE (Certified Distressed Property Expert) and have been trained in the stratigies for submitting offers on short sales & foreclosures. The stratigies to use to negotiate offers often depends on the lender backing the loan. BofA may be servicing the loan, but Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac or some other company may be backing the loan,. That is the information that is needed in order to stratigize & negotiate your offer and get it accepted. I'd be happy to help you with any other questions you may have or work as your buyers agent in the process.
