The property was placed on the market on February 14th at $110,000. The price was slowly reduced to $85,000 on April 11th and went pending on April 18th at $87,500.

The complete Short Sale Package was submitted to Chase on April 24th.

On July 17th we were asked by Chase to reduce the Seller concessions from 6% to 3%. So we rewrote the contract at $84,500 and reduced the Seller concessions.

On August 4th the Buyer’s appraisal came in at $60,000. We rewrote the contract at $60,000 and submitted to Chase with the appraisal.

We received written approval from Chase on September 1st for $60,000. The amount of the “Short” is $77,000 or 60% of the mortgage. No note or cash contribution is required of the Seller.

From contract to approval took 137 days. Not too bad for Chase.
