Anyone who has been through the short sale process with Fifth Third bank will know that the process is never easy with the bank. A lot of turmoils have to be faced. Repeating the same steps over and over again is typical with the short sale negotiators. It’s part of the process to know that we will have to run around from department to department at Fifth Third Bank. The Loan Modifiation Department maybe needs to close it out, or the Fifth Third short sale department doesn’t have someone assigned to Fifth Third Customers Service Department; Above all you need to know better when they are sending you in the wrong direction. Often clients come to us after submitting the wrong information on their application, getting denied, and not being able to figure out what happened. We can hekp you review any declines.

Fifth Third Short Sale Timeline

The timeline of Fifth Thied short sale process depends on some simple factors and other some not so simple factors. These are just a few of the hoops we jump through when dealing with a short sale.

  • For one, Fifth Third Bank only provides service of mortgage notes. Fifth Third Bank’s mortgage division has to abide by the PSA or Pooling and Servicing Agreement that governs the loans. This contract is directly between servicer and investor. Fifth Third Bank does not always have the option to make the decisions themselves. The investor has usually delegated the compny to make the decisions in some of the cases only so for the decisions that the company is not delegated to make they will have to get permission from the investor. Some investors such as Fannie Mae (FNMA) and Freddie Mac (FHLMC) have pulled almost all decision making authority from many servicers. As always the greater the number of hands in the put the more layers of burueacracy you’re going to deal with.
  • Additionally, The fact that whether your Fifth Third Bank loan has a sale date or not also effects the timeline of Fifth Third short sale process. When it comes to homes in foreclosure Fifth Third Bank can be tough when it comes to stopping the sale for the Fifth Third short sale to be completed. If you can get a value completed often your chances improve your getting bumped up in the process. Fifth Third Bank Loan Servicing has homes being sold at auction every day. Sale dates even for the coming week are not working with ugency. Remember this business is a first come first serve but it is also influenced by foreclosure status and proximity to the sale date.
  • Finally, not all negotiators are good negotiators. This goes for both sides. Often miscomunication In the banking world can lead to certain failure. People become very specialized in this niche of representing homeowners infront of Fifth Third Bank Home Mortgage in these financial application processes to find mortgage assistance. Often you will be put though the multiple levels of management including approval from an investor as mentioned above depending on what their total losses are.

Fifth Third Short Sale Timeline Conclusion: Your Fifth Third Short Sale Timeline will vary based on many different factors. Decisions can be made in house will clearly be quicker than those that have to be sent out for appoval., what the value comes back at from the appraisal completed by Fifth Third’s Loss Mitigation department received the Fifth Third Short Sale Application documents are received (readble) and other factors will come together to effect how long it will take for your Fifth Third Short Sale process to be Approved.

Fifth Third 1 Star Review:

I just purchase a home and Fifth Third Bank took over the loan. I’ve been trying to pay my mortgage… Over the weekend I tried to establish online enrollment. It tells me I can’t. Fair enough, I call the bank Monday morning and have been passed around and hung up on digitally 3 times now. I’ve been at this for 2 hours. If anyone tries to get a loan…run from Fifth Third Bank… My next step will be to try and refinance just to get out of it..

Fifth Third 1 Star Review:

I went through Fifth Third Bank because I trusted the loan officer (she was awesome) for my mortgage on a new home purchase. I then switched all my banking over to them. Then my journey with Fifth Third began. I highly recommend that you do not do your banking with them. Their policies are not as good as Huntington or other banks I’ve dealt with in the past. They charged me for two mortgage payments around Xmas. Then when I asked them to refund one payment back into my account that I didn’t authorize they said it would take 24 hours but they wouldn’t charge me the overdraft fee. Thanks for not charging me an overdraft fee for taking money out of my account that I didn’t authorize.

Fifth Third 1 Star Review:

If I could give 0 stars I would. My mortgage gets bought by a new lender from time to time. This has never been an issue until Fifth Third. Suddenly they wanted to charge me $100 extra per month for escrow and told me I had a shortage of $1200. This has NEVER happened in all the years I had my mortgage. Sounds more like a greedy bank needs more funds to loan out. When I request a refund of the PMI they collected that they shouldn’t have, I was told that they don’t own the loan so there is nothing they can do. Really?! Then please pass my mortgage on to someone who can manage it properly. I wish there was a way to really make these big bankers pay for their wrongful actions..
