Bank of America provides guides and materials to help its REO agents navigate the REO process according to Bank of America standards. These standards apply to ALL Bank of America REO properties, including outsourced properties.

In the REO APPLICATION tab above, we have uploaded a PDF “Understanding the BAC BPO” education guide.

After reading the guide, you should understand the following:

  1. What BPOs Are Used For
  2. Why BPOs Are Important
  3. Different Types of BPOs
  4. The BPO Form

NOTE: The guide ends with “Please do not leave the comment section blank!” A very important section of a BPO. Watch the video below for details…

    Hello Poncie, I have a question for you. I have a client that owns a rental property in Florida. They are in the process of short selling the property and received a full price all cash offer. Bank of America wants them to sign a ten year promissory note for a certain amount of money. He is 70 years old and she is 65 years old. Do you think they should say “no”? Also, is it legal for the bank to ask them to do this? I really appreciate your advise on this. Thanks.

      Hello Kellie,

      Recently several of our agents have found success working with Bank of America on having short sale language changed in their contracts, as it relates to Deficiency Liability.

      My broker has produced a step-by-step tutorial on how to work with Bank of America on this matter. Download the attached PDF to learn more. If you have any questions, please consult your manager.

      NOTE: This does not guarantee revision of the contract. But, this has proven to be effective in several instances with Bank of America. Also, you must correspond through Equator, and send all correspondences to the Asset Manager, Closing Officer and Negotiator. ~Poncie
