Though setting up a short sale is considered as a difficult procedure, but you can easily manage it by taking care of the few factors. For an instance, you need to be aware of the requirements, the proper procedure and should find a right buyer who will be interested in buying short sale homes. For your convenience, here we are mentioning the procedure that will let you setup your home’s short sale with much ease.

Know the requirements and get prepared

Pending means an offer has been made on the home and it is in the process of closing.

Hello KJ,
Good afternoon.
Did you ever buy a new home? Are you renting now? Are you still in the market to buy a home? If so, I would love to see if we can help you out. Do you have a realtor yet? If not we have preferred ones we can get you in contact with. I would like to see if I can help you out with a home mortgage. I will try and make this a very easy process. Please let me know how to help out.
Thanks much.

Dan Tabit answered:

Rental scams are common here and on any site that allows the general public to post. Please be very cautious with deals that seem too good to be true. NEVER send money expecting keys back by mail. You can search the address in any search engine to see how the homes are advertised elsewhere. If one listing is much cheaper than other places, it's likely a scam.

Read the scam warning Trulia posts. I've attached a link to it below.

When you find a questionable listing please go to the More button on the listing and then hit the FLAG button on the listing page to warn Trulia and others or email it to

It sounds like you have a verbal offer at this time. I suggest you keep showing the home until you have a signed purchase agreement. Your listing agent should be able to answer your questions regarding contingent offers. I would suggest you not accept an offer that is contingent unless the property is already on the market.

That's my two cents!

Christopher Block answered:
This home is Pending at list price and took 33 days to do so. Expected closing date is 1/9/14, which at that time we can determine sold information.

Websites like Trulia don't always have accurate listings. The link you sent me was for public record (not even a actual listing). This causes buyers to lose out on homes.

If you would like I can send you all listings for Plymouth and any other area you want. Just get in contact with me.

Good Luck!

Hi, Kevin!
I see you've received LOTS of answers about this inquiry. I'm surprised nobody has provided this link:

This is a collaborative effort every year between the National Association of Realtors and Remodeling Magazine. Please check the Minneapolis/St. Paul report to get the most accurate reflection of what your remodel would yield you in return over the next few years.

Good luck!

Yes, if the first agent who showed you the house, then you went to see the same house again with listing brokers agent, then you are obligated to buy it through that agent. Because if the dispute goes to MLS Arbitration then listing broker make your Beloved agent will pay have to return or not get his commission .The law says "Cause of Procurement). Whether you signed up any agent or not. Who ever can show that they worked to make you like or/sold you on the home, will get the commission. The first agent did not show you the comps because you never came to that stage of writing the offer.

You can get your records straight, collect the data of your payments and submit to your prospective landlord. Similarly record for your utility bill payments can convince any reasonable landlord to take these payment history in account.

All the postal receipts will prove that someone received your letter. But how would you prove what you wrote in those letters. you could ask some of your friend in Texas to hand deliver the letter and ask them to sign the receipt of letter.
