Were you buying or selling?
During the process of a short-sale, your REALTORÂ® should explained everything to you. The short-sale process does not stop a bank from going through to foreclosure, and your REALTORÂ® may have been able get the date for your ahead of time. Sometimes the Listing Agent is able to share this information with everyone.
Whether you are buying or selling... work with a REALTORÂ® who has/will prequalified the short-sale client. This will, hopefully, have advanced information available for the Buyer from the bank holding the mortgage on the home that is for sale.
If you have not already signed an Agreement with a REALTORÂ®, I'd be happy to discuss this further.
