I think you'll need to consult with a real estate attorney. If the property does not require flood insurance than (thinking as an agent only) I would not think that would have to be disclosed. This in one best left to the experts for a determination. Especially since your deposit is in jeopardy. ... more

If I were you all, I would be very careful about telling a buyer to "walk Away" just because an appraisal is low. If their offer was not contingent on the appraisal, and/or they have placed conditions on the Seller, such as move out, we want possession of the home, etc, they may not be able to just "walk away."

If the Buyer has the cash to bridge the gap from the low appraisal for the mortgage company, they may not be able to just walk away.

BE VERY CAREFUL. I have heard Realtors quote......If the house doesn't apprase, that's an automatic out. Trust me, It is not.

Hi Reddy,

This shouldn't be a problem for you. What I would recommend is contacting the title company or builder and ask them what restrictions this might impose on you. Also check with the private utility company. Write it down so you know and can disclose if you decide to sell in the future. ... more

Are you working with your own agent or just going through the seller's agent? When pursuing a short sale you want to be certain the selling agent has experience with short sales and with that lender. And it is wise to have your own representation with an agent that is also very experienced in short sales. Short sales can be a great opportunity but you do need patience while pursuing...being surrounded by experience with such transactions can really help. They really could have known sooner that the taxes were not paid. Once a financial stmt is presented to the bank that is what they approve if that changes last minute then they will and can change their it is back to the beginning.
You should evaluate how much you want the property, your financial stakes at this time and who you are working with to make an educated decision about whether or not to move forward or walk away? If you have questions and do not have your own agent I would be happy to
