This is a "short sale" which are anything but short. "Short" refers to the Seller needing the lender's approval to sell, since the market value is less than the loan. This property has been on the market 578 days as of today. It was previously listed at $110,000 and now at $115,000 which is an indication that they had an offer at the lower price and the bank countered. Remember on a "short sale" even with a full list price it may not be accepted by the lender. They are looking to get close to market value...many around 93% of market or better depending on the condition. If you have time constraints short sales may not be a good option for you. You need to commit to a minimum of 90 days with escrow for lenders to consider your offer seriously.

Interview agents, find one you are comfortable with and work with them. They will schedule a vist for you. Agents get paid when the job is completed and the Buyer or Seller has bought or sold. Calling different agents for each property is a waste of time for serious full time professional realtors, since you are asking several people to work on one job, knowing only one will be compensated. Working with one agent you will be sure to get their time and commitment to finding the right property. Commitment is a two way street. The way you have posed your question makes it sound like your calls or requests are not being returned or perhaps you are not really ready to purchase and your are still in the browsing the internet stage. I have a free service called â€œListingbookâ€, which I provide for my clients. It is like a back door into the MLS, which updates daily: new listings, price changes, solds & withdrawn listings, allowing you to really be able to follow and learn the market. I set up a basic search according to your guidelines. Once you are in, you can change the parameters as you need. If this is something you would be interested in let me know & I would be glad to set up your free Listingbook Account.
I feel an informed client makes the best decisions regarding their real estate needs. Let me know if I can be of assistance.
