Bank of America Cash for Keys Program in Nevada

Bank of America Cash for Keys Program, Nevada 


On May 15, 2012, Bank of America announced a new short sale Relocation Assistance Program: Homeowners are eligible to receive $2,500 to $30,000 in relocation assistance.
For a limited time, Bank of America is offering enhanced relocation assistance payments in which qualified homeowners who initiate a short sale without an offer could be eligible to receive $2,500 – $30,000* in relocation assistance and owe no more on their mortgage with the sale of their property. Anyone who is considering short selling their property should look into this limited-time offer to get the help they need by initiating a pre-approved price short sale today.


  • You must participate in one of the pre-approved price short sale programs, such as HAFA (Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives) or Bank of America’s proprietary program. Specific investor participation and eligibility criteria do apply to these programs.
  • Your Las Vegas short sale agent initiates a short sale with Bank of America.
  • As soon as your short sale is initiated, Bank of America will determine for how much you may qualify.

*The relocation assistance payment is calculated based on the appraised value of the homeowner’s property and usually no more than 5% of the sales price. The total amount will be no less than $2,500, but no more than $30,000. The payment will be delivered at the time of closing if the homeowner complies with all terms and conditions of the Short Sale Agreement, which includes but are not limited to the following: a full walk-through appraisal must be completed and the homeowner must satisfy all junior liens and provide clear title for the property (the relocation assistance payment can be used to clear those liens). The short sale must close by September 26, 2013. If the homeowner does not comply with all terms and conditions of the Short Sale Agreement, they will not receive the relocation assistance payment. The amount of any deficiency and relocation assistance will be reported to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on the appropriate 1099 Form or Forms. We suggest that the homeowner contact the IRS or their tax preparer to determine if they have any tax liability.
