This is an old one but for anyone else in this situation, yes you need to find a new realtor or talk to the one you have a get this straightened out. We show properties to our clients ASAP. We return calls or emails ASAP. We have a buyers agent that works with us and if we aren't available our buyers agent gets our clients to a property ASAP. It is also very unprofessional for your agent to be on the phone with another client or just on the phone in general while out showing properties with you. Unless they are talking to an agent on a property you asked to see or had questions on. Not getting back to you or talking to others while you are out is a clear sign you are not very important to your agent. With that said you have seen a lot of homes and have made more than a few offers. Are your offers not competitive? Being in escrow and getting cancelled by the seller only means that you did not preform on your side. Because it took to long? You would have been noticed to perform for something that you did not do or not doing. The notice to perform would have given you the opportunity to correct whatever needed to be corrected and close the deal. I do not see how that is any agents fault. Cancelling an escrow is a lose - lose deal for everyone involved and don't just happen. Was your agent part time? Working M-F with another job does not work with real estate. ... more

Your were still a trespasser and you have to look at it from their point of view too. You are both victims. You were living in their house without their permission. If I came to my home and saw someone in there I'd show up with the police too and tell you leave. Be glad they didn't try to take matters in their own hands to get you out. I don't know how you were scammed or what took place but that does not give you the right to stay there and clearly it all need to get sorted on both sides. Sorry this did happen to you and the owners and I hope it gets resolved fast! ... more

Karen and Paul Catania answered:
Is there a seller to find a replacement property addendum? If there is you need to follow that. Seller has 10 days or what ever amount of days is agreed upon to find a replacement property. If they do not the seller can cancel and you would receive your deposit back. You will have to find another home. If it is done correctly, your contingencies start when they remove their sellers contingencies so you are not spending money on inspections that you will have to walk away from. If you just have the standard contract without the contingency then the seller will have to sell and be homeless until they do find something. ... more

So isn't houseforrentbyowner92@Gmail.com name Elva Sosa and Shaffon A Sounder trying to rent property at 4159 Harrison St, Riverside, 92503. Number used to contact us CONSTANTLY (571)969-2047. They claim to own listed property and all about the ad sounds "GREAT", but then they agree to only want security deposit to deliver keys and documents, but not until they have confirmed receipt of deposit sent via Western Union. They claim that they themselves cannot receive funds due to the nature of their work, so they will ask you to send funds to their personal assistant instead located in South Carolina. He even offered us an option to buy after one year. After going back and forth wanting verification of home ownership, the actual owner contacted us, and they're local and had us go do a walk through. They actually had workers finishing up the remodeling while we were there. When the first guy called back, and my husband updated him on what's gone on, all the guy kept going back to was the subject of how when he calls, either we don't answer or return his calls right away, yet he's the one who hung up on my husband when asked to provide us with verification of owning the home. I gave the actual owner's all the information we had so she could go after these! SCAMMERS! ... more

Hello Johannacsun,

Perhaps they are waiting for the previous escrow ro be canceled. If the home was in escrow and the buyer walked, that escrow will have to be officially canceled before they can open another escrow with you.

If you are worried, just call your agent. he/she is your advocate, and I am sure they are working in your best interest.

Best of Luck to You.

Hello Mohamed,

Now is a great time to buy. In fact home prices are starting an upwrad swing, so if you are looking to get in on the lower prices we have seen in the last year or so, you better get on it.

Some experts predict prices will continue a slow rise while others say they may begin to fall again if banks put more REO homes on the market.

I can not tell you what will happen in the future, but I can tell you that right now we are starting to see multiple offers and homes are moving fast.

Best of luck to you!

Kawain Payne, Realtor

Jeri Creson answered:
Imaging is where the documentation on your submission is literally scanned and uploaded into a short sale servicer's system so that it can be made available to those who have access to the system, like negotiatiors, for review and consideration. 30 days in imaging is a little excessive... I'd start asking some pointed questions.

It isn't uncommon for a file to require additional information after the initial submission, in fact it's uncommon for it NOT to. But there really shouldn't be any one stage, at this point in the short sale game where a file sits unmoved for 30 days without something happening. That cries out to me of a file that needs somebody to push it along a little harder. I notice that a lot of agents have gotten accustomed to short sales taking forever, so they just sit back and wait. I believe, and see daily, that the squeaky wheel gets the grease. Make a little noise : ) but be respectful about it. Firm - but steady pressure gets the job done.

Scott Godzyk answered:
What they paid has no bearing on the short sale, what the owe is taken into consideration by the bank, not the buyer. As the buyer you want to offer what market value is or just below adjusting for confition. A sales price too low will not be accepted by the bank and may be countered. once an offer comes in, the listing agent has to upload teh proposed hud and a net sheet that shows the bank how much they will net from a short sale, they will have a bpo completed compare what they receibve from teh short sale as oppose dto what they would receive at auction. they use a formula to calculate the percent of loss from what the seller owes to the net. in most cases they want it no less than 80% of what they owe.

please see my blog for details on how a short sale works and soem tips and advice for making an offer.

Hi Carrie,

Do you have any concerns about buying from them? They are one of the largest lenders in the U.S. and have most of the bank owned inventory. As Joanne said they will be happy to get it off there books. I have worked with them a few times with very few issues.

good luck!

Jessielynnblue,
Be careful of what you do here, as buying a property and knowingly being laid off soon could be looked at quite bad in the terms of your loan "Loan fraud?"
Usually quick times as of lately but I would err on the side of caution and say 90-120 days to close escrow is an average. How many lenders additional liens etc.

@LISA ABRAMS that is foreclosures only.
Short sales are a voluntary sale on the sellers part.
BofA has put a hold on selling foreclosures. They stated according to the WSJ they will be still doing the rest of the procedure ( taking the homes back ) but not Selling the properties off at this time.

Good Morning Ron,

Unfortanately you have to wait until it comes on the market to place a bid. Go to the house, look to see if there is a sticker or letter taped to the house of who the contact is. If there is try them, they should be able to tell you. Their assets may not go directly to the FDIC, they could be bundled and sold to other banks or investors to liquidate. You will definately want to do all your inspections before making a bid, as your bid will be as is. so to help you guage the price you want to bid, you need to take into consideration any repairs. Make sure you have a pre approval letter to submit with your ofer, make your best bid up front, make sure your deposit is at least 1% or the bid price and be ready to close in 30 days from acceptance. Goo dluck with your purchase. ... more
