The home went pending for the second time on October 22 2014. Short sales require third party approval(The Bank!) They can take up to a year to close. The problem is generally that home owner owes more than what is on the Purchase Agreement (hence its "short.") The bank has to decide if its happy accepting the loss. If there are complications like divorce or bankruptcy the process can take a while. When foreclosures were more of a deal(2010-2012) it was worth the wait.

You might still be able to get a mortgage, but you might not, depending on the underwriter. Also, go to a lender, not a broker, because brokers often add more requirements in order to lower their risk. You will not be able to get conventional financing for 7 years post bk. Also, you need at least a 620 FICO now with FHA, and some lenders will want a 640 - mid score. ... more

The 3rd party is the bank/investors who actually own the lien on the property. They pay the agent's commissions. The brokerage fee is probably the listing agent and/or listing broker trying to make a few extra dollars on a transaction, usually a few hundred dollars. Remember, everything is negotiable. ... more

Selling your home as a short sale is one of the ways to avoid a short sale. I'm not a lawyer, so I'm prohibited to give legal advice, so you might want to contact a real estate attorney and a CPA about the potential recourses. ... more
