Is it normal typical for the 1st lender of a short sale to ask the buyer to pay the 2nd lender....?...we have been waiting for this short sale for about 3 months now and then when were were close to the end we were told that the home would have to go on Hubzu online auction and we would have to resubmit an offer on that site, which adds $7,000 more to our original offer because of auction fees so now we have been again,waiting for approval and today our agent calls and says that the 1st lender(Ocwen) will only pay the 2nd lender (Citibank) 8 prrcent and that leaves a balance of $1,700 and they want to know if we would be willing to pay this so we can close before the month is up. Because we are in temporary housing, this was going to be a cash deal so we could close sooner, but are they asking for this extra money because they assume we have it since we are paying cash?? Do lenders asks buyers to pay the 2nd lender? And why cant they pay them and the home will eventually foreclose which seems like it will cost them more than $1,700.
