Asked by Queenofsolano, Vallejo, CA Tue Jan 29, 2013

Florclosure dept. on the property title info the loan was denied. My home wasn't foreclosed on it was sold as a short sale and all three credit companies have loan satisfied for less than balance owned AND I have all the documentation from BofA to show it was a short sale. What department at BofA should I call to fix this and what is the number? I have very high credit scores and a 20% down payment. I wasn't to buy a house ASAP. THANKS

Hi Queenofsolano,

I hate to be the only person to sound the alarm here but you may not be eligible to buy a new home right now.

If BofA started foreclosure proceedings before you were able to complete the short sale, you will have to qualify under the foreclosure guidelines regardless of whether or not they actually foreclosed on the property. The same rule applies when someone goes late by 120 days or more on their mortgage payment, lenders look at that as a foreclosure regardless of whether or not the lender started the foreclosure proceedings or foreclosed on the home.

FHA requires 3 years for the sale date a on foreclosure before you're eligible for an FHA loan and conventional loans are even longer.

Even if it is a short sale, and your credit score is good, most lenders will not consider lending immediately after a short sale. As some other posters have mentioned, it can take 4 years or longer to get conventional financing after a short sale---little less for FHA.

From what I understand it takes 3 years before you can buy a home after a short sale. Bank of America is a HUGE company. I'm not sure you will get anywhere. I'm sorry for your frustration.

I agree as well that your agent should be able to assist you with this matter. I assumed that you would give hime/her the info I gave you to do the follow up. We at REMAX Gold have a great relationship with B of A where we have our own dedicated line(s) to reaching the escalation department in these types of situations. Please have your agent call me if they need any more info.

I agree you current agent should be helping you with this. you can call the main number for BOA and ask for teh payoff dept. you can also go on Twitter and send a message which surprosingly works really quick to get a reply.

The lender and your Realtor that you are working with should be handling this for you, if they are not, contact the Realtor's office, that you are working with and ask their Broker for help.
