Waiting Period for Those w/Short Sales or Deed-in-Lieu Shortened

Those of us in real estate saw the writing on the wall here. Banks have to lend money and with such a huge number of people “in trouble” with real estate, they are not going to be able to discriminate against those who had good credit and just made a poor purchase.

Fannie Mae has announced a new updated. This time they are revising the waiting period for Deed-in-Lieu of foreclosure and Short Sale on conventional conforming loans effective with applications dated on or after July 1, 2010. Fannie Mae’s Automated Underwriting System (DU) will be updated to version 8.1 and implemented during the weekend of June 19, 2010 to include these changes. No changes will be made to bankruptcies or strict foreclosure, so the present guidelines will continue to apply.

Below is a breakdown and time periods for the new changes.

Deed-in-Liew of Foreclosure–2 years from completion date, MAX LTV 80%
Exception for Extenuating circumstances-Deed-in-Lieu of Foreclosure–2 years from completion date, Max LTV 90%
