More Detail From Asker: - To be clear , we gave notice to end our tenancy at our current home and our landlord will not allow us to delay our move. We have hired movers, and transferred utilities, all based on the commitment we'd be closed by now.

Our agent says we have no choice but to either cooperate with the seller or back out of the transaction (which is not acceptable either, as we will still be homeless.)

Sorry, the question only allows 1000 characters and it was difficult to express with that limit.

You should try and look for a state or local board of education website to see if they have a rating. In Illinois all schools get a report card and you can see how the school measures up vs district/state/national. In California you may want to check and see if you can find local schools. ... more

This is a site of real estate agents and a few others. You would need to talk to a tax expert, maybe a CPA. Email me if you have any further questions.

I agree with Don. You really need to talk this over with a real estate attorney or estate planner.

Escrow and title fees are set and cannot be discounted.
However, the 'garbage' fees such as doc prep, loan tie in, edoc, courier, etc are definitely not controlled and can be discounted.
The above doc prep fee is high (should be included in the escrow fee) and the edoc fee should be included in the escrow fee.
The loan tie in fee on the above is out of control!! Too high!
Messenger fee: in order to charge this amount, there must be an invoice to charge it.
Wire fee is typical.

In short doc prep, loan tie and edoc seem high.

I just came from giving the key to my buyers in that area. They bought a house for $300k, nice house with some updates. The area is nice, there are some quiet street, you got a shopping center close by, schools and access to the freeway. Contact me if you are looking to purchase a home in that area or surroundings.

Personally, I would rather work with a broker any day as opposed to a bank. Unless it's a small community bank, which generally don't do conventional mortgages anyway, but do give up close and personal hands on service, I'd tend to stick with a Mortgage broker.

Most big banks don't have a clue about how to deal with people because their employees are just a bunch of robots trained to provide very scant service at best. It's not really their fault it's just the training or lack thereof that's provided to them by these "To Big To Fail" Institutions that are scared to death to let go of any of the bail out billions their sitting on.

Whew! Boy do I ever feel better now that I got that one off my chest. LOL!!

Hi Terry,

I will be happy to help you. I work the SFV and know where you can find properties for that price. If you got approved last year, I will recommend you to get approved again. I work with direct lenders that can give you very competitive rates.

here is my contact information.

Sylvia Barry, MAS,CIPS,SRES answered:
Most short sale lenders would want to reapprove the short sale if it is already approved. If it is not, then you should submit it now but stress it's is not a new purcahse offer (so they don't start all over again) but it's an additional buyer.

Part of the reaons why the short sale lenders want to know every buyer is to make sure the short sale is arm-length; preventing fraud.

Hi Alma,
Have you received any letters from your lender?
Call your lender and see if they set a date for the trustee sale.
Or email me your home address and I can check and see if there is a trustee sale date.

Best wishes,
