I am looking for someone who may have an inside number for Countrywide's foreclosure department.
The reason is I have a friend who is trying to place an offer on a foreclosure and the realtor assigned to the propery by Countrywide refuses to place her offer.
The property is listed for $152K. She wants to offer $70K because of extensive repairs needed. HAs sat on the market since last November of 2008.
So she tells him the property has several thousands of repairs that are needed and she needs the current appraisal- BPO appraisal. She offered around $70K...comps at $160K.
The realtor is simply refusing because he said Countrywide will not accept an offer lower than $152 since my friend qualifys for a $160K loan from the bank. WHAT!!!! He told her Countrywide won't come off that price since she qualifys for $160K.
The realtor says.."Well I am sure Countrywide has a current appraisal somewhere but I don't have it"
So she tells the realtor "You are trying to sell me a place without even some kind of an appraisal I can look at?" "How did you come to the listed price if there is not a current appraisal????"
My friend needs to go around the assigned realtor since he will not make her offer to Countrywide.
She has recently adopted 4 little kids and needs a larger home for all 6 kids.
