"Unfortunately you are not alone. It's more than an outcry. The powers that be really need to come down harder on Bofa than they already are. Working on these short sale for over 2 years now I've uncovered down right fraud happening on the lenders parts. If they cared more about moving this country forward than protecting their own wallets then they would cut the red tape and approve these short sales in a timely manner. Our team made the wise decision to get BofA loans which were FHA or Freddie Mac backed, approved prior to listing on the market. Then we can list the home as "Price Approved" and close in 30 days. In this instance BofA does a full appraisal, rather than an incompetent "Broker Price Opinion" (nothing against agents but they have no idea how to make adjustments on comparable homes) and then the bank issues an "Approval To Participate" letter which dictates what price we can go on the market and take anything north of 88%. I really do hope your situation improves. " about Congressional Bill to Speed Up Short Sales

"We made an offer 4 months ago to BofA, and have heard nothing. It was a cash offer which is better than the zero money they are collecting now. And since the people don't care they are trashing the place, by the time BofA gets around to it our offer will be gone as the place is a mess!! Septic issues now, garbage being dumnped. All of this could have been avoided if BofA really wanted to correct their cash flow problem and sell these properties in a timely manner. They cry about cash but then do nothing intelligent to fix the problem" about Congressional Bill to Speed Up Short Sales

Generational Housing Needs and Their Effect on the Market

There are four distinct generations that are changing the types of homes in demand today. They include these generations: The Silent Generation: born 1925-1945, Baby Boomers: born 1946-1964, Generation X: born 1965-1980, Generation Y: born 1981-2000

Each of the generations have very specific housing needs which require updated floor plans. This is creating both challenges and opportunities in the real estate industry. These new demands for specific space include more storage and work space, outdoor living spaces, and guest or extended family guest quarters (next generation living space). The demand for remodeling has dramatically increased with bathroom renovations next generational remodels being at the top of the remodel list.

The four generations each have different housing needs and each require a different kind of home. Here is each generation is looking for in their living space:

Silent Generation: This generation doesn’t require a large home in terms of square footage. Small square footage and one-level living is attractive to this generation as the less there is to maintain, the better. They are not into fancy finishes – they want practical, useable space with smart bathrooms (which include non-slip surfaces, easy-to-get-into bathtubs, walk-in showers rather than shower/bath combos, and safety bars). They also need space for visiting family members or a temporary live-in caretaker/medical care provider. This generation is more likely to renovate rather than relocate if possible due to their connection with their neighborhood and their neighbors.
