No it is not for sale in the Realtor's MLS. Where did you see it advertised? It also does not show as a recent sale.

Nancy Robinson answered:
Contact both Realtors brokers/managers and ask for help after you have the denial letter from the lender. NO one can help you without the denial letter. In Michigan EMD is almost never returned but by buyers and sellers signing a release. However if you can demontrate the mortgage denial was based on your inability to be financed, not your resistance to comply with loan requirements, some brokers will take the responsibility to allow the release. Michigan State escrow laws are rather strict so most brokers wont touch this issue.

You can try to reingage your buyers agent to get the release signed by assuring them you will come back to them to purchase when you are able. Or you can remind them their duty to assist you extends past the purchase agreement and they have a fiduciary duty to help you get our money back. All Realtor boards allow for a public complaint against a Realtor, And abandonment of agency is a serious issue. And yes I agree you should contact a lawyer.

It is more of a seller's market right now. Inventory is low and demand is high. This does not mean that you can't get a house you want for the price you want! Contact me and I can help you find the perfect house!

If you're looking for comparables you'll need to provide information about the home you are buying or selling. I would be happy to assist.

Good Luck,

I agree, don't know of such a site. However, by using these two websites you may be able to get a rough idea. to get the 2009 tax rates

and Trulia Stats and Trends to get the average value of homes sold

You may also be able to use the State of Michigan Treasury website,1607,7-238-43535_43540---,00.html

Wish you luck

Carol Pease, Broker answered:
If the contract is pending do you have a copy of an executed contract? If so, what is the closing date on the contract? Make sure that your agent keeps the contract in dates and works closely with the other agent. Short sales can be very frustrating and do often take a long time.
