I could call the listing agent to find out if they are willing to review another offer. You can try to beat other buyers' offer if your offer is more acceptable to the owner/lender.
I can send you a detailed listing of this property as well as any other listings you'd like to review.
Please give me a call to discuss your options. I could also help you with mortgage prequalification.

This home is a short sale and has a contract on it but the bank might still allow other offers. Let me know if I can help.
