This is an excellent question. If you "Google" your question you soon discover that the term is not common to real estate language. Maybe, it''s use in this area should be taken literally and the real estate agency does not know why the home is not available (off the market). ... more

Audrey, The Pocono Mountains community has an interesting hybrid of office jobs that circulate throughout that year in our region. We are affected by seasonality as we swing from a ski locale to a beach and water sport location. We have recreation, corporate and educational office opportunities here. A significant employer in East Stroudsburg is the East Stroudsburg University. As far as the overall employment market, we are dealing with the same economic challenges that any area is, opportunity is here but we do not have the same volume as an urban region. We also never primarily depended on local jobs as the primary employment in a household due to more than 50% of our real estate consumers coming from NY & NJ. I am not sure if I answered your question, but I would be happy to help you with local contacts for employment placement. This may help inform you on the employment opportunities in our area. All the best. Dominick ... more

Audrey, Unfortunately we do not have a commuter train access in our County. This is however a project that has been moving in the right direction but due to numerous delays, it would be misleading to say that a train in coming to the Pocono Mountains in the near future. We are a commuter friendly area (approximately 38% of Monroe County residents commute into NY and NJ daily. If you would like for me to send you info on Martz Bus Transportation let me know. I am originally from NJ, born in Hoboken and lived throu Jersey City, South River and Woodbridge. Let me know if I can be of future assistance. ... more

Generally the bank takes it back, it's not at all unusual for a home not to sell at auction, the banks usually want more money than a bidder will pay so they take the home back, it becomes 'bank owned' and they wil list it for sale through a realtor. ... more

Aren't you using a Title Company for the Escrow?

Sharon Sapp answered:
The short answer is yes, it's legal.

In a short sale, there are 3 parties involved instead of 2 and all have to agree on all the offer's terms and conditions for the deal to go through.
Some Realtors like to have a back up offer in case the lender rejects the first offer. If they are still allowing showings, they should be letting the other Realtor know this.
Do you have a verbal approval from the lender? Have you gotten a status from your Realtor?
If not, ask for the status. You really can't do much until there is a written approval from the lender.

Shane Milne answered:
With big banks the service can be really hit or miss, it really comes down to the people you are working with. Someone with poor organization and communication skills will make the process very difficult for everyone involved. Like John says, if you have time to find a new lender, it'd be wise to do so sooner rather than later. ... more
