I believe the contingencies need to be removed properly, but are you backing out for no particular reason or based on a contingency? If you are backing out based on no particular reason and not a contingency, I would think the seller can keep the money, I am not familiar enough with what is going on to say one way or the other. ... more

As long as she has given you 24 hours notice. When you say she's in short sale, has she found a buyer? It may be a good time for you to step in, and buy if you're able.

Just run your numbers. This is a simple formula to use to see your rate of return. Of course you need to adjust for potential repairs/vacancy.

Gross rental yield = Annual rental income (weekly rental income x 52) / property value* x 100 ... more

The landlord, provided she provided adequate notice, typically 24 hours in advance, can do a walk-through for several reasons.
See http://www.tenant.net/Other_Areas/Calif/misc/nffland.html about when landlord may enter.

The walk through can be a move-in/move-out inspection to make sure the property is in the same condition as when she rented to you.

She can also check it out to discern if there are any repairs that need to be done, and to determine who is responsible for repairs, as well as get estimates.

The walk-through may also be to honor her obligation if there is already a buyer, and the transaction is about to close. The buyer has a right to do the walk-through to make sure the property is in the same condition as when they buyer saw it.

But in both cases, the walk through should be on the date that was agreed upon between you and the landlord. If there's a change, then she will need to give you adequate notice for the change.

James Tan answered:
I would like to refer you to the statistics available on Trulia:
http://www.trulia.com/real_estate/94531-Antioch/
It also contains crime statistics as well.

Antioch prices are quite low, some of the homes are selling at 1/3 of the peak prices in the area. So are Oakley prices. You should also consider Oakley or Brentwood. Brentwood is selling at slightly higher prices than Antioch, but generally the ratings of the schools are better. It is a little bit further away from Hwy 4 but it is closer to Hwy 580 (for people who commute to Pleasanton).

I would recommend driving around in these 3 cities and form an opinion for your self.
Note, that because the prices in Antioch are quite low, a large number of investors from the Bay Area are buying them for rentals. Hence the ratio between renters and owners may be different now than a few years ago.

If you have an FHA loan then you would have had an FHA appraisal that will follow this property for 6 months. It would be in the bank's best interest to lower the price to the appraised value. I have had B of A agree to lower the price after the FHA appraisal came in $25,000. lower than the offer price. ... more

Bob Georgiou answered:
I have to totally agree with the second paragraph of Marston's post. When performing a short sale YOUR transaction "game" is being played on someone else's field, and that game is rigged. Like most rigged games its not about the player but getting all that players money. The game is supporting a broken system that created a boat load of artificial wealth, yours, mine, a bunch of greedy bankers, and a bunch of corrupt politicians. In a foreclosure (and possibly bankruptcy), you are not playing in their arena but exercising your own personal rights. This is not to say that short sales don't have thiere place for some, which is why some short sales do in fact close and that there are not consequences, there are. There are also some cases where a foreclosure is the right thing to do. Many times the consequences for a seller are the same for a short sale and foreclosure and that is bankruptcy. So why would anyone want to drag out a horrible process. This is precisely what happened to you. The seller, the agents, and the bank could have saved everyone a lot fo grief by avoiding this mess all together. ... more
