Lenders are getting their stuff together! A couple weeks ago we got an unexpected call from somebody at Wells Fargo Financial saying "we want to send an appraiser out to this listing of yours value it and to "pre-approve" the short sale of the property.". We were taken by suprise by the call, as this is a property that has no offer on it, and has never recieved an offer in the past. Now, we've done alot of these, but I've never had a call exactly like this! We have done them many times and recieved approval letters with "blanks" under the buyers name, and/or long time periods for closing, but nothing this "random"!
Long story short, we just recieved an approval letter on this short sale file, a couple weeks after their initial call, without having an offer or anything on it as of yet! We'll throw it out there tommorrow as a 100% lender approved short sale, and will probably get a buyer and get it done pretty quickly!!
Has this happened to you guys yet? Short sale approval letter without ANY offer?
