I agree with the other answer that if you can move quicker they may pay you more.
I am always curious to know & if you can email me with an answer that would be great. I promise I won't Spam you back or anything, but why did you not list the house for sale or do a short sale? Why did you let the bank take it all the way to an auction or did you do a deed in lieu & if that's the case, why a deed in lieu?

It's been my limited experience that they will offer you more money only if you are able and willing to move more quickly. Sometimes they will say $xxxx of dollars if you move in 14 days and $xxxx less if you move in 30 days.My guess is $1,500 is their limit. And remember, they don't have to pay you a dime.
