Wachovia/World Savings Fast Track Short Sale Program
Are you unable to make the payments on your Wachovia or World Savings Mortgage?
Homeowners have heard the horror stories about the Loan Modification and Short Sales process and the time it takes to get the approval.  Wells Fargo, who purchased Wachovia and World Savings banks, understands the situation this market has created and now offers Realtors, homeowners and buyers the assistance necessary to streamline the short sale process and approve these transactions within traditional time lines. They are taking the lead in creating this process for homeowners with Wachovia / World Savings home loans in order to stop the flood of foreclosures.  
How can they do it?  Wells Fargo has determined that it would be less costly to work out short sales on these loans, which were acquired at a discount as part of the acquisition of Wachovia and World Savings, than it would be to proceed with the more costly foreclosure process.  Their focus is to efficiently move these loans off their books.

The Short Sale Division at Family Tree Realty & Investments, Inc. is familiar with the Fast Track Program and is prepared to assist eligible homeowners through the process, which removes the financial burden so that the homeowner can move on with their lives.  If the homeowner qualifies here's what they can expect:
