|Short Sale Relocation Assistance Program:
Your clients could receive $5,000 to $30,000 in relocation assistance
Financially distressed clients want to avoid foreclosure. So…
That’s why Bank of America is excited to offer enhanced relocation assistance. Qualified homeowners who initiate a Preapproved Price Short Sale (without an offer) could be eligible to receive $5,000 – $30,000* in relocation assistance and owe no more on their mortgage with the sale of their property, depending on the investor involved.
AFTER contacting your REALTOR® they will initiate a Preapproved Price Short Sale on the Equator website.
Determining eligibility is easy:
Once your REALTOR® has initiated the short sale on Equator, Bank of America will quickly evaluate the homeowner to determine if they qualify for the enhanced relocation assistance.
The homeowner must participate in one of the Preapproved Price Short Sale Programs, such as:
Specific investor participation and eligibility criteria do apply to these programs. Call your agent to help you with these conditions.
Homeowners not meeting eligibility requirements for the enhanced relocation incentive may still qualify to receive $2,500 – $3,000 in relocation assistance from government- and bank-sponsored programs.

|* The relocation assistance payment is calculated based on the appraised value of the homeowner’s property. The total amount will be no less than $5,000, but no more than $30,000. The payment will be delivered at the time of closing if the homeowner complies with all terms and conditions of the Short Sale Agreement, which include but are not limited to the following: a full walk-through appraisal must be completed and the homeowner must satisfy all junior liens and provide clear title for the property (the relocation assistance payment can be used to clear those liens). The short sale must close by Sept. 26, 2013. If the homeowner does not comply with all terms and conditions of the Short Sale Agreement, they will not receive the relocation assistance payment. The amount of any deficiency and relocation assistance will be reported to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on the appropriate 1099 Form or Forms. We suggest that the homeowner contact the IRS or their tax preparer to determine if they have any tax liability.|
