It is great that you are seeking an FHA loan. An FHA loans has great benefits such as low closing costs, low down payment, and it's easy credit qualifying. I have given out plenty of FHA loans throughout California. I can offer great rates, quick response times, and friendly service. Although you do not plan to get the loan until early 2014 it is never to early to talk to a lender like myself to help guide in the right direction for the upcoming months. So give me a call so I can prepare you for your upcoming buying process.

Well I hope this helps! If you have any further questions or if you need a loan, feel free to contact me. Also, if you found this helpful please leave me a recommendation if you can!

Good Luck!

If the property was foreclosed on and title is now in the name of another party you will need to leave, lawsuit or not. Yes they say possession is 9/10's the law but in the case of a home possession mean the title not occupancy. Be careful some day a sheriff or marshal of the court will show up change the locks or remove your property then you will be chasing after that.

Your lawsuit for unlawful foreclosure if by a slim chance you win would net you compensation not the home. If you miss one payment you are in default of a mortgage so over turning even the most botched up case is difficult.

We have about 24 cases in this same situation, some were able to drag out eviction because law enforcement was sympathetic but eventually they were forced out.

Good Luck

With a short sale, you are hardly negotiating with the seller. In many cases, with the deficiency laws in CA as they are, it really doesn't matter to many sellers what the sales price is. It matters to the bank. If an agent cuts their commission, the proceeds go to the bank, not the seller and certainly not the buyer.

If you sign up with the listing agent, their fiduciary responsibility is not equal to you and the seller. You do not get the same representation as you would with your own buyer's agent. Bottom line, you seem to want feel you are in control. If you feel you drive a better bargain by going straight to the listing agent, that is great, because feeling that way is important to you. I am sure they will make you feel good about yourself and your perceived sense of power over the deal as well with all the smoke and mirrors that goes on. You will never know the difference.

With short sales, the buyer is in the passenger seat. Because of the bank's involvement, you don't really have as much leverage as you seem to feel you have. A buyer's agent who is loyal to you will cut through all of this clutter so you can make real decisions based on real facts. BUT, you will have to be loyal to them.

Gotta kick into the karma kitty to get something out of it.

Deanna Fortney answered:
Buyers often walk away. My client just moved into first position because the first buyer just couldnt wait any longer. In the old days an offer was it and it went contingent. Active was supposed to mean the house was available. Today it may mean the agent is waiting for a call and something better before they decide, if at all, to change from active to contingent status. Your agent was either sitting on the offer or the negotiator was sitting on it and gave the agent no time to get it to you. Highly unlikely but possible. Your agent may not be staying on the ball. Can't say how you could intercept since your agent is not getting you the offer in time to counter. Clearly you need someone to work for you. Good luck with it. ... more
