Bank Of America Makes Short Sales A little Faster

Bank Of America recently announced it will begin to use additional methods to determine property values in an attempt to streamline the short sale process and reduce cycle time.  As of mid-October, different valuation methods that do not require access to the property will be implemented on some transactions.  This will reduce the time frame for the valuation stage from several weeks to a few days.

Think that selling short is the answer for you. Call me and let me help you through the process free! You don't pay me, the bank does.
