    That must be just for B of A ????? I just got approved for repairs on a bank owned with Chase from local vendor.

    Any idea what is the best way to become a direct listing broker with Bank of America? I was told I need to have a credit limit of 150k on a credit card. …..

      Hello Chris, the $150k credit card requirement is not true. I have Bank of America and do not have any credit cards. I do have expense money I use for REOs. Bank of America is using Safeguard to make all repairs on their REOs anyway. The only expenses you will acquire will be utitlies. Click on the BofA blog and learn how to apply to BofA direct:

        Glad to hear this. I have applied already but have not been accepted as a preferred listing agent. Any idea whom I should try to contact that is a decision maker at B of A to get rolling?

        I do appreciate your time to respond.

    Is there any way to get around not having errors and omissions insurance or do you know a vendor that carries that insurance and the least expensive?

    I’m looking to be an REO agent and would like to sign up. What’s the pass word and do you have any advice where I can start? I do short sales and have closed a Bank of America one.

    If this is for real, I am interested. I sell a lot of REO’s, and market them for my broker..

    Is everybody having as much trouble as I am in closing short sales these days? Everything on MLS that’s not a regular sale, is a short, but so many agents are saving them, or the banks don’t close them… Tell me your experiences…

    I have been listing some of the BAC listings and see that they are throwing assets into auction at the same time they put them up for sale with the real estate agents. What is up with this? It show that it is for sale for lets say $380,000 and the starting bid in the auction/trulia site is $139,000. This is crazy!!! The auction is not for another 30 days and of course everyone is calling and wanting it for $139,000.

      Bank of America is putting properties on auction after a certain number of days that the agent has the listing. The catch is that if you have an eviction, that time counts toward that period. We are also seeing this happen, along with the NSP. If NSP (National Stablilization Program) purchases it, you may see it back on the market within a week!
      Best bet is to hope it is vacant and you can get it into escrow, where you get to complete the sale.
