Even if the mortgage balance is less, the total amount owed would have to add up to more than your offer, otherwise it wouldn't now be a short sale. There are probably late fees, penalties and now that they are delinquent in their payments most likely legal fees which could easily run several thousand dollars.

You certainly can submit a new offer on the short sale, but keep in mind it can take 2 - 6 months or even more to get a response from the seller's lender(s), and they can reject any and all offers, including full list price. Banks are not obligated to cooperate on a short sale. Make sure you are using a buyer's agent that has a good track record on short sales, one that can guide you through the process.

These are some great answers. Another thing to understand is that buying a foreclosure property takes time and patience. Finding a suitable house in foreclosure takes diligence and good timing. It can often take twice as long to close. ... more

Just some heavy flooding in low street areas but did not last long. This was because there was

Richard Webb answered:
Wise question. Do your homework with owners in the same association. Some HOAs charge a $100 application fee. That is nearly guaranteed to kill most tenants interest.
One association makes tenants apply online, then runs the credit and background checks, the fee is high, and their poor customer service scares tenants away.

There are not a lot of valid reasons for a HOA to reject a tenant that would not get them sued.

Hi Dougie Ingram,
I read your reply to one of the posts.
" I am leaning toward a large firm with top notch training with smaller % splits at the beginning as apposed to a smaller firm with limited training, but larger % commissions. What do you think?????
footnote:I am not interested in getting left behind with a big firm!"

At Keller Williams no one gets left behind and you will be happy with the commission structure. The training is fantastic and ongoing. I recommend that you call our team leader Ron at 386-562-2651 and tell him Rekha sent you.

Jinger Knox answered:
Many mortgages have a clause in them that mandates the home is owner occupied, other mortgages may only mandate that they were owner occupied for a certain period of time (ie. first 2 years, etc). It is best to look at your mortgage and understand your rights and responsibilities before making this decision. Also you may want to consider only leasing the home (without a fixed price for selling it) while the market is still working it's way back up so that you are not selling at a lower price and holding the note while the market improves. If you give someone the option to buy at today's prices a year from now you might regret it if the prices have jump substantially and you are stuck with the agreement.

If you need any assistance please feel free to call
