Sad news-offer not accepted`

December 13th, 2013 at 10:36 pm

Hi all,

using this somewhat as a diary too (hoping to read back on it someday and laugh).

the 'settlement/short payoff' for my house was DECLINED..No counter but they apparently do not always counter offers.

Offer $260k.. house worth at a firesale $380k and I want to live here.

Reoffered $285k today.. fingers crossed.

I will figure out a loan/money ... if it can work out once offer is accepted.. just need to get a number.

I actually got this news yesterday but was very upset. Decline was a HUGE surprise. i was so confident I was nearing the end.. I was super down.

After several years of hell.. 4-5?? I just want things to settle down and calm down and would LOVE To settle into my house..

Fingers crossed and prayers for a good response next week.

I DID ask them to counter if the offer was not sufficient.

Part of why they may have refused was because they upped the value in their system to $380 vs $350

    I'm not sure the bank would have been doing it's fiduciary duty by selling your house in foreclosure/short sale back to you for your low ball 65% offer of $ 260 K when it originally evaluated or loaned $ 400.K - $ 410 K? Am I correct in assuming you are still living in the house and enjoying it features?

    Kiyosaki's book was very controversial when 1st published. I recall his corporation fell into corporate bankruptcy when he lost a judgement for $ 24m I wonder if that thinking by the executive suite caused the 2008 collapse in the USA which vibrated around the world. I was just reading about the retirees at American Airlines who have lost their pensions and have no way to replace the funds they believed were safe in corporate hands.

    I had to leave the house right after I posted last night. I'm just getting around to responding now. I am finding your story fascinating. You are attempting to fill aspirations comparable to mine at an accelerated and grander scale then me. Basically you are more aggressive and I am more cautious. I have never heard of this Short Refinance and I thought I had heard of most products out there. Keep trying and keep posting.
