Kathy Burgreen answered:
As a former realtor, your agent lied to you. Every realtor knows when they view a listing whether it's a short sale, foreclosure or a regular sale. These facts are stated in the MLS system. There is a section called "Agent Remarks / Agent Notes" that is private (not available to the public) and for agent use only. Even if the short sale is not public information, it would be stated in the private section of the listing under "Agent Remarks". It is also required that any additional notices (short sale, foreclosure, etc.) MUST be attached to the listing. Again, it may not be public but it is required to be attached in the MLS system. Any realtor that violates this rule is subject to having their license suspended or penalized.

As I said, your agent should have known about the short sale, If they claim they didn't know, then your agent is lazy and not reading thru everything on the MLS system. Bottom line - find a new realtor and dump this lazy agent who doesn't know what he / she is doing.

Hi LBowers,

If you refinanced your current home as your primary then a lot of lenders will not allow you buy a new primary residence for 12 months because you signed a occupancy affidavit stating you will occupy the home as your primary residence for at least 1 year.

There are some exceptions like if your employer transfers you out of state or something like that.

Take a look at the recommendations from some of my past clients on my Trulia profile by clicking the link below my phone number.

Please feel free to contact me for more information or help.

VA does allow for renovation financing to be included in the loan, it's just that most lenders don't offer the program. imortgage does them.
