Dolce, Home Buyer in Hammonton, NJ

I am buying a home and was not told it was a short sale until after I paid 2000.00 dollars towards escrow and signed a contract. Is the agent?

obligated legally or ethically to provide this info to potential buyers?

Hello Dolce,
There is the possibility that the property may have not been a short sale at the time the listing agent proceeded to get the owner sign the listing package? Time goes by quickly and the houses are not selling that fast so a few months may have passed. Nowadays the Trend Multiple Listing Service requires to disclose in the listing if it is a short sale or not.
