They wouldn't spend that much on legal fees, but on many properties in South Walton, they would lose more than $50,000 by the loss of equity. If they loaned $400,000 on the house, which is now worth $275,000, they would have a loss of at least $125,000, plus, lawyer fees, brokerage fees to resell the property, plus lost interest during the time between when the former owner stopped making payments to the time when the bank finally sold the house.

I wonder if that number of $50,000 is perhaps the current National average?

No, they were citing that number as the amount the bank had to spend just to go through the process - legal fees, filings, notices, staff time etc. not as the total monetary loss on the deal.

Made me wonder why (if it did actually cost that much) they didn't hire some people to expedite the short sales and save them some $$. :dunno:

$50K seems low for the national average of a net loss - that would be less than a 15% loss on a $350K house and prices seem off by more than that.

Yes, $50,000 does sound low for a nat. avg of a net loss, but $50,000 seems too high for legal fees and filings. I guess the higher they can make that number, the greater the write off for the bank. If you look up the foreclosures and look at the detailed expenses, legal fees, etc don't typically total close to $50,000.

Yes, the banks spend $30,000-$50,000 to forclose on a property. They do what they call a "savings over foreclosure" analysis to determine whether they should take a short sale or sell it in foreclosure. Of course, they're screwed if they can't get what they think they should from a foreclosure sale. Bobby had a good example the other day of the bank accepting much less than his short sale offer.
