Yes, you can if the seller rejects to take care of the rotten floor. Are you working with Buyers Agent, she/he must advise you accordingly.

The listing agent may give you a ball park/guideline as to what the bank is looking for. Also, the first step is to check the SOLDS of similar homes in the last 3-6 month time frame to get an idea of offering price. ... more

Hi Sophie,

Notes from the agent that answered previously:

"One of the biggest time factors is who is handling it. Bottom line is most agents and/or attorneys aren't that excited about working with short sales. Reason being is that there is a lot of frustration and time spent, which doesn't always work out and they end up working for nothing." Many times the one(s) working the short sales aren't as experienced, and for good reason as it's viewed as wasted effort. Most agents will advise their clients to avoid short sales to save them (the client and themselves) the aggravation."

Perfect answer.

This is the exact reason you need t work with an agent that understands short sales and the process. A short sale agent will be in contact with attorneys who know also know how to process a short sale. 90% of agents that I know that SAY they know how to work a short sale absolutely do not. Most attorneys will say they do them also.. because it is a big payday for them.. they do not care at all how long it takes. If it goes through, it is a jackpot payday. a bonus.

You need to find an agent that understands the process. Start with an agent that is SFR certified. (Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource) this is not the total answer to finding a short sale agent, but most SFR agents understand and know how to get these properties done.

Simple question for the agent: who becomes the initial third-party authorization. If they do not know what you are talking about, move on and find one that answers, "me".

this is not the case in todays market: "Quite frankly, you can usually find something better through a traditional sale."

There are a lot o short sale bargains out there... Find an agent that is SFR certified.

The time frame can be 6 weeks to 4 months in todays world.

This only happens with properties hard to sell, or with some unresolved issues, such as easement issues, which are still pending. Pay more attention to these properties.

I don't see anything listed in the MLS. However the agent does not always have control over Trulia unless they subscribe. Trulia customer service is your best bet, however I would recommend checking the local MLS too ... more

Mikel DeFrancesco answered:
If a bank owns it they will most likely clean it out, secure it... hire a broker to sell it on the open market. There is no mechanism to buying it prior to it going on the market. Contact a good local Realtor that can help you to view it when it's available or introduce any additional properties meanwhile. ... more

Jeanne Feenick answered:
Hi Keith, evaluating your home as a rental property is the same analysis as evaluating it for sale. A market analysis is what you need - looking at comparable rentals to guide you on price and terms.

If you need more assistance, I'd be happy to help you.

My response of contacting different lenders is not for modification, modification can only be done with your lender. Contacting other lending institute is for refinancing, some companys are offering great refi deals. Sorry if you misunderstood. ... more

Gustavo answered:
It really depends of your situation and the type of property you are looking at. Manville is a great town, and many parts of it are not lake front properties. That being said, you are the one that chooses what market is good for you. If you want to talk about it, please reach out to me.
Best regards
