Home buyer this is Sandy Wallace with Keller Williams Realty in Santa Cruz. Some times a realtor will list the foreclosure if many different sites and forget to update the information. And the bank sometimes leaves it up for the trustee date till 72 hours before the sale date. It is true that the banks have different departments doing different things and they don't always syncornize the information. I would ask your Realtor to call the bank or have the Realtor that is handling the short sale call the bank to verifiy that they are cancelling the trustee sale. I hope that you get everything you want in your new home purchase.

Also, even if you don't get any more notices in the mail or on your door about an auction date, keep checking with the reconveyance company. They only have to let you know once that an auction has been scheduled (though many will let you know more than once). If one auction is canceled, they may schedule another without telling you.

No, you shouldn't be worried. This is normal in short sales. In some instances, the bank continues with the foreclosure proceedings while they are doing a short sale so the short sale doesn't stall the foreclosure if it doesn't go though. In your case, you have a signed contract, you shoud be ok. I've done numerous short sales, and my clients have even received notice of auction while the short sale was in process. Please have your realtor call the bank right away to follow up regardless. Good luck :)
Do not assume anything. The trustee sale number is the key. Yahoo is probably dated info, but it would be wise to check it out. There is no one person giving oversight to these transactions so your agent needs to be super pro active!
