I would say honesty is the best policy. Tell the listing agent your intention. He/she is paid by the seller at closing.

It depends on a variety of factors. But with a successful short sale the average is 3 years. Defiantly less that going the foreclosure route. Speak with a licensed mortgage lender about your specific history and determine a plan to purchase your next home. ... more

A local title company or attorney would be your greatest resource for this.

The owner and yourself would need to contact the local Assessors office and complete and submit specific documents including the proper deed, all notarized. Hope this helps.

I can help with any of your Las Vegas Real Estate needs or questions; feel free to contact me direct.

If I'm understanding you - you just don't know how to go about putting an offer in on the house you like?

I would suggest finding a buyer's agent to assist you, especially if you're going to have a home sale contingency on the purchase of the new home.

An agent handles negotiations and contracts for a living, it'll make it a much easier transition between homes!

Your only option is getting an attorney involved. You're risking a lot if you try to go on your own at this point. Attorneys do cost money, but are well worth it in this situation.

If I had to venture a guess as to why this neighborhood has a lot available, I would say it is because this is a first-time home for most people and people are looking to move up to something bigger. There is only one short sale in the listings that are available.

But ultimately, the best way to know about an area is to spend some time there and talk with a few of the neighbors. They're are a great resource for what truly goes on in the neighborhood on a day to day basis.

Good luck in your search!
