The seller could have decided to rent the house out or the mortgage company/bank may have declinded taking the short sale and the seller may have just become discouraged and perhaps decided to do deed in lieu, etc.

Hello hendersonc04,

A short sale house might get foreclosed on by the bank. If it is in the foreclosure process it might be off the market for awhile and then come back on the market as an (REO)--real estate owned. This will be done by a realtor that the bank has chosen to market the property. So, if there is a home you have earmarked, keep your eyes open and hope that it comes back on the market as a foreclosure, which is a much easier process for the buyer than the short sale.

How long does it usually take the forclosure to take place and the house be put back up?

Ask a Realtor to look it up on the MLS

Hi hendersondc04,

You could call the Listing Agent and see if they will let you know.
