I'm also waiting to hear from DB. All of the leg work's been done on this house already, but I'll be honest, I'm about done with dealing with agents, banks and short sales. It's quite the dishonest racket.
I just want to buy a house - I'm not an investor. Tell me how much you want for the house. If I think I can swing it, I'll negotiate with you, otherwise I'll move on. Only now, agents are listing houses here in FL for much less than they know the bank will accept. This is my third and last short sale. I offered on the first and sat and waited for nothing. The agent was collecting bids like acorns. We approached the next but he was honest and said that they'd want to go to closing before my fha loan could be processed to avoid foreclosure. Apparently they spent a lot of time collecting offers but everyone backed out because of the lack of communication from the bank. Hah! I hope they go through foreclosure on that house.
I've been in conversation with builders for a new home. If this short sale offer isn't accepted, they can sit and spin on the wind vane! I'll buy a new house.
It's a cryin' shame. A buyer's market? I don't think so. It's an investor's market.
I just want to buy a home for my family.
