Hi James,

Thank you for your service.

To get the best VA terms available, we'll need to work on your score a little bit more but I'm more than happy to help you.

Short sales are better than in the past, but no where near being easy or reasonable. Each one I've done, and I've been doing them since 2002 has been different and an adventure. I'd say, proceed with caution, when you see a pre-approved short sale and only proceed if you have the time to invest. (3-9 months)
With rates coming back down, you may find that any money you save with a hopefully lower price on a short sale, may be lost on the other end of the transaction with a higher rate.
My suggestion is to find a house you love, that you can afford and make the best deal you can on it. Use a great agent, not just someone "nice" because you need knowledge, experience and strategies on your side.
Best of luck.

Hi Jimel:

The best you can do is to look at how much money similar homes have recently sold for, look at the current competition to see how the house of interest compares with others, then make a decision. As Emelia says, a good real estate agent can be a big help.

The lot size should be on the county tax report and should be shown on the city tax map, corresponding with the block and lot assigned to the property.

Verbal acceptance offers are legal in Ohio, but how do you prove it? If you did not initial the changes in the contract, and the bank did not sign off then you have no proof of an accepted offer. In the future, get it in writing immediately. As it stands now, it is simply your word against theirs.
