I am assuming you have a contract on a house that you're trying to buy? Does the contract address this issue? Hopefully, I know most do. First, talk to your agent. Then, read your contract. Wish I could tell you more. ... more

Unfortunately no one knows what to expect next with the BOA short sales. I've seen the process take 9 months, and other times it was done in 2. The only control you have is making sure the Realtor is staying in contact with BOA to keep things moving along, but there is only so much the Realtor can do. With the situation, they can pull the plug anytime they want to, and since the sherriff's auction was cancelled that's better news than what most people get, however this could be because of the halt to foreclosures currently going on. I know you've been patient to this point, but the situation will require more patience on your part.

Using a buyers agent in a transaction is the first step to being able to negotiate a fair value for the property of your choice. Your agent should be able to pull up comprable sales in the target area to substantiate your offer. Your buyers representative should also present the offer to the sellers and the sellers agent in person. Sometimes this is not possible due to sellers being out of town, a third party or bank ownership, etc. Many agents today have forgotten how to represent their buyer clients.

There are still some sellers out there that need or demand more than their home is actually worth in todays market. Those homes will not transfer to new ownership till that seller becomes realistic. But, with the right buyers representative you will know where to start and where to walk away as a sales price.

Hi Bob,

Yes, you can still qualify but you must BUY a home for your principal residence again and you must be under contract by April 30th, 2010 and close the sale by July 1st, 2010. The credit will be, as you know already, 6500- not 8000. By the way, it's only 3,250- credit if you are a married couple filing separate. There are other considerations too... income restrictions that Robin spells out pretty well below. (smile) ... more
