A lot of agents offered help with short sales in general, but did not really answer your question, did they? There was a lot of chatter on the internet about it being in foreclosure, so it was hard to tell the real truth. According to town hall records, the bank (Deutsche, I believe) had started foreclosure filings in early 2010 and there was a $3 million outstanding loan. The house was listed for sale, but the listing was cancelled (list price $5.995) right around the time of the pre-foreclosure filing. Later the loan was assigned to American Home Mortgage with a restructuring, so as far as I know, it is not in foreclosure to my knowledge, and AT THIS TIME.. It was just recently listed in-house with a local realtor (not on the multiple listing) at a price of $4.695 as of June 24, 2010. As you surely know, these things can change, but that is the scoop for now! If you want to use a realtor who goes the extra mile, please contact me, and I would be happy to help you.
