We made an offer on the house when it was listed as a normal (not short) sale according to MLS. After we settled on a final price, the seller informed us that it was a short sale. A few days later, we were informed that the house had been foreclosed. Our offer made it to the seller but had yet to be signed.
We were told our best bet would be to try and contact the bank (Bank of America), and let them know we had an offer. Our attorney says he will handle everything but that without a signed contract, there is nothing he can do.
We just need to know if there is any way for us to buy this house, or is there nothing we can do?... more
