Congratulatins on almost getting the property! One question you may want to ask the selling agent is when the bank last approved the short sale. Also, although it's bank approved for the last offer, doesn't neccessarily approve it for every offer. Short Sales Approvals have expirations. So, you may want to ask them when it was last approved...and if it was on a particular offer....or if it's a general approval.
Good Luck, Marina!!
So, hopefully this is going under the HAFA short sale program and the owner is still living in the house. With the HAFA program the Seller will $3k at closing so they may be more cooperative and leave the house with appliances and light fixtures and hopefully not just simply abandon the house without electricity for months on end!
