Kathy Burgreen answered:
If you filed bankruptcy it meant that your income was not enough to cover all your expenses and your credit was affected. So why should a lender give you a mortgage now. Lenders will look at you that if you can afford to qualify for a mortgage now, you didn't have to file for bankruptcy in 2014.

Truthfully, you need to wait the required length of time and realize that things like bankruptcy, foreclosures, judgements, short sales, etc. do have consequences. This is not a case of file bankruptcy and start over right away. Life doesn't work like this. You have to pay your dues and be punished for the decisions you make. It may not be fair, but who chose to do the stupid things that led to your bankruptcy - you did.

Renting is a smart option. Sellers either want to sell or they want a number. It looks as though you want a little of both, which is understandable so I would recommend renting until you can realize the sales price that you desire. ... more

Yes, landlords are required as it's the law. However, many try to avoid this.

Paula Ruckelshaus answered:
Lauren - The first thing you should do - if you haven't already done so - is enlist the aid of a buyers agent to try to ferret out the reason your offer wasn't accepted and otherwise assist you in negotiating a home purchase. The fact is that you came in very low as a percent of the asking price. On a short sale, the owner gets to decide whether or not to accept an offer before it is remitted to the lending institution for second tier approval. And, an owners decision will be based on their exposure to having to make up any difference between the sale price and mortgage balance and their prospective income tax exposure. Typically, banks also establish a floor selling price below which they will nix the sale - and they have the final say. In my experience, short sale lenders will not engage in direct conversation or negotiations with prospective buyers. So, your best bet is to get a buyers agent. From there, you and your agent can realistically assess your chances of buying the property you are focused on at an acceptable price - and also work together to identify alternatives. Also, don't assume that you won't qualify for mortgage financing just because you're self-employed. The mortgage qualifying process and criteria is more rigorous, but it can be done. ... more

Keith Sorem answered:
You should know that homes are selling in your area. (see link)
So if some homes are selling, why not yours?

The first thing you need to get an offer is showings. A properly price and marketed home should receive 10-12 showings in the first two weeks of market time. Homes that sell in the first 30 days in most markets will closest to asking price. At 120 Days on Market (DOM) in my market they sell for 93.6%, as opposed to 99.5% within 30 days.

Most buyers are working with REaltors, to no showings means that Realtors are all on vacation (kidding).
They are showing other homes that they perceive to offer more value.

I would sit down with my Realtor and ask her what you need to do to get this home sold.. Then do what they say.
