shortsales + fha

anyone able to get around FHA title seasoning for shortsale flips (A-B B-C transactions)?

It is very difficult and had luck once when my buyer used a small local bank. The lender did not see a problem with no seasoning despite FHA guidelines recommending 90 days. This is rare.

You have to structure the deal in side of a land trust. When you recorded the trust it will season the time you owned the property. When you go to re-sell it will have the proper seasoning requirements if the short sale took 3 months. This is an advanced strategy you should really have more training on the subject before attempting to close with a FHA buyer.

I’m working on a way around this right now. I will share if it is successful.
