short sale approval stamp


After losing money on her investment property for many years, this Milford, CT homeowner finally decided to cut her losses and sell her over-leveraged rental unit. Due to the large amount of negative equity in the property a short sale was the only realistic solution.


Since our seller had two loans – one with Nationstar and a second with Wells Fargo, we expected the short sale process itself might be rather slow as neither lender is known for their speed. Although our seller certainly qualified and we expected would be approved, we anticipated some delays.



It took just a few weeks to secure a strong cash buyer for our home. Our short sale packages headed to both lenders. It’s not every day that we are pleasantly surprised by lender speed, but sometimes it happens! It took just over 3 weeks for Nationstar to seamlessly process and approve our short sale, with Wells Fargo right behind. A few weeks later the buyer seamlessly closed, leaving our thrilled seller walking away free from her problem rental unit!
