Program HR3648 is seeing increasing demand from both homeowners with distressed properties and real estate professionals looking to capitalize on the increasing acceptance of short sales among lenders,” said Jeremy Bowman President and Co-Founder of RealPrompt. “With many banks struggling to reduce their losses from defaulted mortgages, and agencies like the Federal Housing Finance Agency forcing loan servicers to approve or reject all short sale offers within 30-60 days – it’s a win-win situation for agents and distressed homeowners,” added Bowman.

The Federal Housing Finance Agency, who oversees vital components of our country’s secondary mortgage markets – Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the Federal Home Loan Banks has now implemented timeline requirements to facilitate more effective and efficient short sales transactions. Starting June 15, 2012 real estate professionals and distressed homeowners (with loans backed by Freddie Mac & Fannie Mae) can expect to be approved or rejected on their short sale offer within 30-60 days.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for real estate professionals who are Program HR3648 certified or for agents with extensive experience in short sale processing,” said Woods Davis Vice President of Sales & Marketing for RealPrompt. “If you are a real estate professional and not focusing your efforts on short sales – you are suffocating your business. Short sales have now surpassed foreclosures – which indicates the U.S. is making progress and working through its inventory of distressed properties,” added Davis.

According to Lender Processing Services Inc., a Florida-based company, showed short sales accounted for 23.9 percent of home purchases in January, compared to 19.7 percent of foreclosed homes sold. Only a year prior, 24.9 percent involved foreclosures and 16.3 percent were short sale transactions.
