With the slow-down of Bank Owned homes here in Sacramento real estate,  Sacramento area  short sale closings have been increasing.

According to Jim Waserman at the Sacramento Bee:

What if you have  Bank Of America As Second Lienholder… Is $3,000.00 Enough?

To entice servicers to accept a sale on defaulted properties for less than the outstanding mortgage balance, Treasury is offering incentive payments of $1,000 per completed short sale. Servicers will also receive $1,000 for each deed-in-lieu of foreclosure.

Subordinate lien holders will be paid to release their claims on defaulted properties, up to $3,000 of the short sale proceeds as long as the primary investor agrees to share the earnings, and for this concession, the investor will also receive up to $1,000 from the Treasury. For those second lien holders who want more than the $3,000 cap to relinquish their stakes, the Treasury said they can pursue a short sale outside of the federal program.

The Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives Program (HAFA), as it is being called by the Treasury, was initially announced back in May, but was delayed because of concerns over legalities involved in the process and the rights of second lien holders to hold claim over the property. DSNews.com reported in October that the administration was readying guidelines for the program, and yesterday, they arrived.
