You have a bigger issue to consider. I don't remember if VA uses its own forms, or an addendum attached to the standard NWMLS forms, but if latter and probably even the former, you may be committing fraud. The standard NWMLS has a clause saying you're not relying on contingent funds, and if you need funds from the sale of the house as part of your purchase money funds, those would be contingent funds. So you would be knowingly making a false representation in order to get the VA to act.

I'd suggest rather than consulting a website you consult an attorney.

I am HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED WITH TRULIA. The real estate industry deserve better. I can't get a customer service rep to return my call and their website complaint section is not working.

Kary Krismer answered:
It depends on how the form 22SS is filled out. It will likely either be X days after you and the seller come to terms ("mutual acceptance") or X days after notice that the bank approved the sale. It's a negotiated term.

Short sale negotiators tend to like the former so they don't waste their time negotiating a sale that isn't going to go through. It's not a horrible idea for buyers either, because waiting for bank approval can mean several wasted weeks if not months.

Most of the time the utilities will work with you and turn them on for 24-48 hours so you can inspect. If they won't do it for free, I typically (as the broker) take that on.
You won't need the stove for the inspection but you will for the appraisal. You need a cooking surface for the home to be considered inhabitable. I do quite a few short sales mostly on the seller side but a fair amount of the buyer side and I am fairly close to your location. If I can answer any more questions, please feel free to contact me. ... more

Shane Milne answered:
Thanks Ron - but with the info they laid out I feel that they should be able to get this done with their current lender, and with ~20 days to spare switching it up right now would be stressful for everyone in the process, especially since there is that final review by USDA for the conditional commitment. ... more

It would take a sizable down payment on a $200,000 home but it is possible. You can get new construction in north Marysville for around $165,000 if staying under $200,000 is an option.

Make sure that you go to a title company and find out if the 15 year lease is grandfathered in. Be very careful as the rules can change very quickly. You want to make sure the lease can be transferred to a new owner. ... more

Jacqueline DeLong answered:
In a short sale the offer is subject to inspection unless the buyer has opted to waive the inspection just like any purchase and sale contract. I would advise to have your realtor write in the offer that this offer is subject to the inspection after the bank has approved the short sale. If you spend the money to have an inspection and it is too costly for you to make the repairs , if needed, then you are out the cost of the inspection and do not want to purchase the property. However, you may loose the purchase if you do this as the bank or mortgage company will take the least troublesome offer that is equal to yours. Sometimes this transaction is a bit confusing but you usually end up saving yourself a lot of money. ... more

Dana, you're not alone. I have a teleconference twice a week with several (100 or so) other investors, and I network regularly with other groups of investors. I've heard exactly the same thing at least 10 to 20 times over the past 3-to 6 months.

I've personally experienced--and heard about--other slight variations on that. I submitted an offer on an REO roughly a year ago, after having done a walk through with my GC. The listing agent was highly unprofessional; he was indignant and refused to submit my offer. He balled out my agent and indirectly slammed me for making such a "ridiculous offer"--only to accept a similar offer from another buyer 5 months later. One of my mentors has submitted offers on several REOs that were rejected--only to receive calls (several months) later to inquire to see if he was still interested in them.
