Thanks, Carole, for the link back.

Tom, I have my title company do it in a short sale case. It's one thing to make estimates for a client but quite another to make the HUD that will be binding for the sale. That I leave to the pros (and, of course, I have a good relationship with one who will do it for me!).

Bonnie: do you prepare your own preliminary HUD-1 at the offer stage or do you have title/escrow do it? I imagine that some kind of CMA type info needs to be in that package. I have found that the decision makers for 2nd lien lenders are non-existent. The operators in the call centers just send you into call transfer hell.

Carole Cohen

Bonnie, you and your muse explained this so well I had to give you some link love. I had a client call her lender last week and I could hear the relief in her voice; she may be able to do a short sale to avoid losing the home. I hope your Minnesoat home owners take what you say to heart.
