Call your lender immediately to be sure your agent has submitted a contract at the price you signed. It may be possible your Realtor is trying to do a same-day flip and not showing the bank your contract but a lower priced contract! One way to be certain what is going on is to contact your lender directly.
If it turns out your lender has a falsified contract that you didn't sign then call the FBI immediately and have the Realtor prosecuted!
From what I heard today the FBI has added about 200 extra agents in Florida to do sting operations on Realtors/Investors/Owners committing short sale fraud.
Hope this helps you. Hopefully your Realtor is acting in your best interest and not their investor or themselves! Unfortunately I see shady deals every day in Short Sales in Tampa Bay--especially by certain listing Reators and well known Real Estate firms. Why their brokers allow these agents to get involved in these suspect deals seems like pure stupidity to me...... more
