You should start by meeting with a local and trusted loan officer who can look at your credit plus financials and let you know

The property is currently off the market, but had been on for $189,900 and needed 3rd party approval for a sale which usually indicates a short sale. Feel free to contact me if you have additional interest and I will see what else I can find out for you and see if we can still view the home. Have a Great New Year.

Usually out here in California, the purchase agreement has a Short Sale Addendum clause for the buyer to indicate how they want to proceed on a Short Sale. If you really like the place and want to show the lender how strong your offer is by depositing the good faith money, I think it is a good way to show that you are a serious buyer and in it for the long haul. There are a lot of people thinking they can make offers on several places at the same time and pick and chose what they proceed with, is not the best way to do business. I would suggest, that since you have some hesitancies, maybe you should look at foreclosures instead of short sales. Best, Terry Bell, Realtor, Santa Rosa, CA ... more
