As of recently Wells Fargo has been very hesitant to complete interior values for their Wells Fargo owned assets during a Wells Fargo Short Sale. Per Wells Fargo escalations Wells Fargo is no longer ordering interior values on their Short Sales unless they have a verifiable reason to absolutely need to complete their valuation and take into consideration the interior of the property and its living conditions. As Short Sales are sold as is its very common for Wells Fargo negotiators and processors to confuse this as a reason to not take into consideration damage and needed repairs however the value assessed for the home must take into consideration all details and factors that affect the properties marketability and appeal to prospective buyers.
Although Wells Fargo Short Sales are now hardly using Interior BPO or Appraisal Values for their Wells Fargo Owned Loans it is still possible to get the servicer to complete one. In many cases the parties involved in the Wells Fargo Short Sale can greatly benefit from the completion of an interior value. Specially if the interior of the Short sale property is in very bad condition. According to Wells Fargo they will only order an interior value if there is significant interior damage and photos or repair bids have been provided to prove it.
