Is your home listed for sale? If so, you should ask your Realtor to update the photos. If not, why does it matter? This site pulls property info from different sources -- such as MLSs and public records. I'm guessing you're looking at an old listing, or the public record. If the house isn't for sale anymore, most homeowners ask to have the photos removed for privacy reasons. If you feel the need to show the world your beautiful home and the fabulous landscaping, you can "claim" the house as the owner of record, and update the info yourself. Good luck!... more

Like with any other offer the Seller (Person that has the name on Title) is the one who chooses the buyer, the offer does not have to be the highest in terms of dollars or terms. If a lower offer was accepted by the Seller then that offer along with a "Package" of other information is sent to the bank. Once the Bank is done negotiating with the 1st Buyer they either go into Escrow or look to a "Backup" offer which it sounds like yours is. This is not like an Auction. Be Patient. Most of our Short Sale Listings end up going to the 2nd or 3rd offer do to a variety of reasons.... more
Is this for a Short Sale? If it was a BPO, then it's good for about 90 days depending on the lender. If it is for a loan, then it's up to the bank and their policies.

Is this a short sale? If it is your agent should receive a copy of the banks short sale acceptance letter which will detail the price they have accepted the amount of commission they will pay and the close date. The seller will need to sign this acceptance letter to forward back to the bank. Your agent should request this signed letter as proof that your offer was accepted by the bank/third party. Once this is done the clock starts ticking on your contract in terms of inspections, deposits, and a buyer getting financing if applicable.... more
Yes, it is possible. Departments within the banks do not communicate well with each other. I have seen homes go to foreclosure with an approved short sale.

You really should consult with an attorney as to the legality of this. If you would like the name of an attorney who is experienced in these matters let me know. I will be happy to provide you that information. It would be highly un-professional and illegal for a real estate agent to advise you on legal issues. Best of luck!

If there is an accepted contract then the seller (or buyer) is bound to that contract. Depending on the particulars written in the contract, there are several different ways it can be handled. Any seller may accept back up offers on a property but because they have a higher back up offer doesn't mean they can get out of the primary contract...even though they may want the higher deal. When you are dealing with Short Sales it is an all new animal. The "seller" is the bank, and they have the final say on any offer. Once they accept it, you are in good shape. Any short sale, although is accepted by the owner, is subject to bank approval.... more
