You may have difficulty finding a 6 month rental that will end in the winter months....if you are going to rent my guess is most landlords will want to keep you for a year if your lease was starting in July.
The areas you are looking are fantastic communities with great schools for your children. If you'd like to see what is currently available I'd be happy to show you everything in the Whitefish Bay/Shorewood area in your price range.

Are you the owner of the house or are you renting? If you are the owner you would have several notices from the bank up to this point, there would be an auction date when the house is up in a foreclosure auction when anyone can bid to buy it. If you don't know you can search it on the county website.... more
Yes. Just because there is an offer pending doesn't necessarily mean it will close. Contingencies have to be met and if getting a loan- loan approval.Don't be afraid to put in a secondary offer. You would be surprised how many go through!... more
Yes, call a local Realtor to assist you, If you have a friend or family member, who has used a Realtor in their home purchase, ask them for the Realtor's name. Having an agent referred to you, will insure that you will feel confident with the service that you are given. They will be able to assist you with the process, from financing to searching for the right home to suit your needs, right to closing:)
If you need a good name, please feel free to contact me. I know many Realtors across the country. I will be happy to find a good Realtor to assist you.... more
Yes, we have all had our difficulties dealing with these sorts of offers. I've found that the short sale process is absurd and many sellers haven't been pre-approved for short sale. The foreclosure side of the market seems to move much more swiftly.
I have sold both and while the short sale took many months and challenges and answers similar to what you stated, the foreclosure took on 2 days and a closing in 30 days.
The banks have ever changing policies and are inundated with challenges so unless you find a broker and agent who are familiar with the dealings of distressed and bank owned properties; you'll be "hanging in there" for a long time and with no answers.
Let me know if you'd like a contact of a broker/agent in Milwaukee to help you sort out the options.
