That way there are two HUD-1’s and the Lender doing the short sale never actually sees what happens to the property. They don’t know that you have already closed in the next room with your buyer, and are making a literal fortune…

What you need is a Title Company who knows and is comfortable with performing Double Closes. Beyond that, it should be a piece of cake…

Heres the situation I am in…

I have negotiated a short sale with Countryide (1st lien holder) and HomEq (2nd lien holder) for a property in preforeclosure status. I have gotten Countrywide to discount to 83k and HomEq to discount to $2500 for a total of $85500.00. I have an end buyer lined up who is waiting to purchase the property for 115k with financing through Option One. Everyone is ready to close…but there is a problem. Option One, along with 99.9% of the other lenders in the country have seasoning issues and wont fund a deal that has not had the same owner on record for 12 months! So, with this in mind, how do I collect my 35k profit. I know there are a ton of people on this board who claim to have experience with closing short sales…so I really need to hear from you. All of the Gurus out there selling short sale courses neglect this issue, which is the #1 most important issue because unless there is a way to solve this problem, these short sales are next to useless for these type of quickturn transactions.
I am sure I will get a bunch of responses criticizing me for calling them useless and claiming that they can be done with ease…and these are the people who I want to engage in conversation with so I can be enlightened on how to close these. I will ANXIOUSLY await responses. Thank you in advance for taking the time to respond to my post.

Get a good mortgage broker who can find a lender that doesn’t require seasoning.
If one tells you there aren’t any, ask the next. If they tell you there aren’t any, ask the next, etc…

I funded two short sales with a hard money lenders then refinanced with banks.

The unanswered question is still how do you retail it to yuor end buyer all at once, even if you find a lender who doesn’t require seasoning? Short sale Bank/lender is not going to let you profit (knowingly) when they have discounted their position.
Can anyone provide insite?
