It is a "market driven" request ... a rational seller wants to know that if he/she is taking their home off of the market that the buyer is "objectively" qualified to actually close on it. Right now, offers generally won't be considered without a pre-approval letter - because inventory is so low there are often a half dozen or so other offers to compete against and the lack of a pre-approval letter simply makes your offer "uncompetitive." ... more

As part of your due diligence period you should be able to cancel offer if you like but you have to confirm with title company and your broker about your contract to make sure you get your earnest money back in a timely maner. This is a new one for sure. Good luck.

The correct answer to your question requires more information than you have provided. You will be able to find what you are looking for in the price range you desire in more than one location in the Las Vegas Valley. Do you want or need to be close to a new work location, close to friends or relatives, close to specific parks or other areas of interest? Contact me or another Realtor in Las Vegas to set up a search based on all your needs and wants. I would strongly suggest a trip to Las Vegas to look at a few possibilities.

John Brassner answered:
When you employ an agent they can answer those questions. In short, if it is permanently affixed to the structure its a fixture and is supposed to remain with the house. This includes light fixtures and ceiling fans. This also includeds the stove which really isn't alsways affixed to the house but is commonly included. Fridge, washer, dryer are considered personal property. But when in doubt, the purchase agreement holds most of the answers. Sellers cannot usually receive any proceeds from a short sale for the sale of the house (except when the bank gives them a relocation allowance). Personal property sale is a separate issue that the banks won't be involved in--so that shouldn't be any problem.

What can get everyone in trouble is when the seller says "I'm taking all of the fixtures unless you pay me x dollars outside of escrow." This would be against the short-sale bank's approval terms in most cases. All compensation needs to be on the escrow (HUD statement) statement in a short sale and non-cash transactions.

There are exceptions to all of the above so let your agent advise you on your specific situation.

You sell your house with your lenders permission for less than you owe to the lender. The lender has to approve it because the sale will not pay off the loan amount. The lender can come after you for the amount they lost on the sale if you are in a deficiency state where that is legal. ... more

Irina Karan answered:
The bank can not breach a short sale contract because the bank is not a party in the contract.
The contract is between the seller and the buyer, subject to 3rd party approval, rejection or counter (3rd party being the short sale bank(s)).

The bank can come back dictating new terms, like a countered price or timing of the closing.
Because each counter kills the previous offer/agreement, you don't have to accept new, bank countered terms. If you don't accept these terms, you can terminate your contract.

However, if you do accept these terms, you have to obey by them.

Hope this helps,

Hi jwill!

I don't think you will have much luck. About a quarter of our available units are bank owned and half are short sale; those flat can't trade. The odds of finding a traditional owner who just happens to have no mortgage and wants to move to a place just like yours in texas is very small. ... more
