I have not forgotten about this topic. I have been in discussion with the Policy Director at the Treasury Department, NAR and CAR on this issue. It would be wrong to rush this story to press. I went to them with a complaint and it only got more complex after the discussion. It’s the Holidays and I want to give everyone a fair opportunity to respond, before I get very public with the grounds of the complaint. And for those of you who have written to me asking how I got http://www.HAFA.us as a web address and how I knew it would become a Federal Program, Well the truth is that I read the Supplemental Directive the day it was released. That weekend I was reading a Wayne Dyer Ph.D. book and the thought shot into my mind. Are any of the HAFA extensions available. http://www.hafa.us was available , there was no special magic beyond that.
I promise you that in the next few days there will be some more news, I am not taking the holidays off. HAFA short sales are on a time frame of 120 days, my clients want to sell their homes if it is at all possible.
