To your question, no. You can't be evicted from a home you own. After the sale, pack your bags. Before the sale, it's your home.
Also, NO bank would let your family friend buy the home (I assume you mean for less than what is owed, AKA a short sale). If your friend was buying it for more than the loan balance, the bank has no say so in who buys it. BUT, if its in foreclosure, the bank also has no obligation to delay the sale for your friend to buy it.... more
Fraud is a specific legal issue that an attorney would need to review your agreement and advise you on, but it sounds like they made an offer that they weren't qualified to make. I would think you may have a chance to retain the earnest money.
Speak to your agent and or their managing broker before you go further. Then get your house back on the market asap.... more
It is difficult finding properties in the area that allow pets, particularly in that price range. Fewer and fewer landlords seem to be allowing them, but that will change with the rental market, when landlords are having difficulty finding new tenants, you will see prices drop and more pet-friendly places.
That being said, at the $450 / range that allow pets, your best bet is finding a "room for rent" / roommate situation. I would check Craigslist. Be aware that there are quite a few scams in the rental sections of that website. Don't send anyone any money until you have a signed document and you have seen the unit in person. You may even want to be more proactive and posting your own ad in the local papers and on Craigslist seeking a room to rent that allows for a pet. Good luck!... more
