Short sales are very confusing & each one is different. The different departments do not communicate with each other very well or not at all.
Is your agent doing the short sale themselves or is there another short sale negotiator involved?
Short sales can still take place after the sheriff sale but are more difficult.
You definately should of received notice of the sheriff sale. If you didn't then something is wrong. It should of also been advertised in the legal news at least 4 or 5 times.You may want to get a lawyer involved. My short sale negotiator has a lawyer & offers some free consultation. Maybe yours does to.
I wish you the best!!
Fortunately for you, your home is in Michigan. We have redemption period of usually 6 months. If the property is vacant, they can take it in as little as 1 month. You still have the right to sell it in the redemption period.
You should of received notice of the short sale from wells fargo. Your agent would not, unless they have authorization from you to contact & speak with your bank. I use a short sale negotiator that gets authorization from my sellers. My short sale negotiator has a lawyer that you can contact with any question. I don't know what your agent does. Every short sale & situation is different.
I wish you the best,
I lost a listing or better said I did not renew it because I couldn't win. I had an excellent offer but it was below their tipping point. which was far too high for the prevailing market value. Hope that helps.
