Yes, but I wouldn't choose just "any agent", I'd check out some profiles here on Trulia and find a really good one. Or get a recommendation from some people you know and trust. Best of luck... ... more

Sorry to say this but I think it's misleading to say the house is IN Southern Oaks when it ISN'T. Let's put it this way: I wouldn't advertise it that way---I might say "NEAR Southern Oaks".
Feel free to call me at 661.809.9425 and we can discuss further. Last spring, I had a buyer who wanted a home IN Southern Oaks; none were actively listed; but I found the buyer a perfect home IN Southern Oaks. No promises or guarantees---but I know it's POSSIBLE.

Hi Rachel, good advice so far regarding the gift letter. With regards to your parents taking over, the purchase contract is between you and the sellers. You would have to amend the contract to include your parents. This could only be done with the seller's approval.
Good luck,

Short sales can be very long and frustrating, i am in such a transaction right now.My buyer mad an offer in June and only 3 day ago did we hear from the bank.We still don't know if the offer has been accepted.
When working with shortsales you have to be prepared to wait and be very patient.Mistrusting your agent is most likely coming from poor communication.Talk to him and tell him your concerns,trying to change agents at this point will complicate the transaction even more.Good luck,

Hi Carrie,

I just happened on this site today.

I have not used their service, but it looks useful. The company based in SoCal, so it could have some good data for you.

Take care,
