First, your agent should have got your bid in same day if you really wanted the home. There is no such thing as a back up in short sales. The seller can accept an offer, but it is then sent to the sellers lender for approval. With a short sale te seller has to be approved to even do a short sale and the offer will have to be close to the current market value. It can take 1-3 months for approval. The buyer as to be ready to close in 30 days of the lender approving the short sale. You may want to start looking at other homes as this sale will not be easy and even harder without your offer not being the one the sellers bank is looking at ... more

call the escrow company - conference call with your agent would be ideal - and get a copy of your final settlement statement to see the exact amount due.

Stay away from Craigslist, while it is still good for many things, the real estate section is now full of scammers. I agree with several people here. Hire a real estate professional to market the listing for you. They can put it in the MLS and syndicate the listing to hundreds of websites much easier than the average person. It will save you a lot of time and money.

I suspect Cindy is correct; however, you may be able to find a landlord who will rent to you with a substantial down payment. I would find a licensed real estate agent you are comfortable working very upfront with him/her and get advice on whether there are options in your situation.

Hello Shawn,

I would say it will probably rent for about 1500 give or take a couple hundred depending on what kind of shape it is in. Now is definately not the best time to sell unless you just looking to get it off your books. From my research, I'd say that people are going to start buying this summer, but only properties that are priced right and volume this fall and winter will be sluggish. I see a better sellers market next spring. If you'd like I can prepare a competitive market analysis and send it to you or deliver it to you in Newport Beach. I tailor my real estate business with a personal touch and I like to meet the people I'm dealing with. Let me know if you'd like to schedule something that works for you. You can reach me anytime on my cell phone (760)880-5760.

Have a great day,

Josh Hambarian
