A large majority of these loans are owned or insured by Uncle Sam. They own them outright thru Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac. And they insure the actual owners against loss thru FHA and VA.

The rest of the loans are owned by Wall Street Firms, Hedge Funds, Pension Funds, and other various investors. So who makes the decision on a short sale?
It depends. If the loan is “delegated”, then Bank of America can make the decision to approve or deny the short sale. The actual owner of the loan has “delegated” the authority to make a decision to the lender handling the loan.
Usually a supervisor at Bank of America will make the final decision. This is an advantage because you are able to get an answer faster on the short sale.
A Non Delegated Short Sale can drag out longer. First you have to submit everything to the short sale lender. They look everything over.
They will ask you for any missing documents or anything else needed for the file. Then they submit the complete short sale package to the loan owner. The loan owner looks everything over and makes a decision.
The first question we ask when negotiating a short sale is, “Are you delegated.” I want to know who the decision maker is on the file. This improves the odds of getting the short sale approved.
Here are a few guidelines for whether or not a short sale has been delegated. Is the loan one of the following?
FHA Loan. Not delegated. The lender assembles a package and submits to FHA for approval.
Fannie Mae Loan. Sometimes delegated, but not always.
Freddie Mac Loan. Our experience is they usually are not delegated.
VA Loan. Not delegated. The lender assembles a package and submits to VA for approval.
Sliced and diced loan (Wall Street Owned.) Almost always delegated.
