Daily Real Estate News  |  July 6, 2011  |   Which Banks Are Pursuing the Most Short Sales?
JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo accounted for 60 percent of the some 17,781 short sale and deed-in-lieu agreements loan servicers completed through May under the Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives program, reports Inman News in its analysis of the latest figures provided by the Treasury Department.

The two banks emerged as the front-runners in completing short sales and deed-in-lieu of foreclosure agreements when compared up against other loan servicers, all participating in the HAFA program.

On the other hand, Bank of America entered into less than half as many HAFA short sales or deed-in-lieu of foreclosure agreements than either JPMorgan Chase or Wells Fargo.

The government’s HAFA program provides incentives for completing short sales. For example, home owners participating in a HAFA short sale receive $3,000 in relocation assistance.
