If the short sale goes through the HAFA program they will not be able to cut commissions. Also, i haven't seen Ocwen cut commissions on agents double ending deals for awhile unless the purchase price is extremely high. Some agent's prefer to have someone else represent their buyer though to be on the safe side. Ocwen is one of my favorite lenders to deal with as we have great contacts there which allow us to bypass the outsourced representatives.
If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to us as our door is always open.
