Hi again Leisa,

It's been pending sale since 7/30/12. It was a short sale and they can take a while to close escrow.

Hello Hillarytop22

Your best answer will be determined by a good loan officer, not a REALTOR. REALTORs typically specialize in the property side, not the financial side. Although, there are some agnts who profess to do both.

Below are some lender referrals near your area who I would recommend. Start here.

Try Deno Merziotis at Prudential California Real Estate.
He is the best negotiator in California when it comes to investor owned properties.

Good Luck!!!

They can ask that. Sure. However, check your offer, and check with your Realtor. Very likely, you can get out of the purchase because the house didn't appraise for the amount you agreed on.

Alternatively, you can ask that the sales price be lowered to (or below) the appraisal amount, and still ask for closing costs.

The problem is the sellers anticipated receiving a certain amount of money from the sale, based on the anticipated sales price. Now that the price has to be lowered (because of the lower appraisal), they want to make up some of the difference elsewhere. And they want to do that by no longer agreeing to pay closing costs.

Check with your Realtor for the various options.

Greetings from Florida.

Show the Broker this question you posted here on Trulia.
See if they can justify their actions.

Working with short sales and banks can be very difficult even for seasoned Brokers.
They may have a valid excuse.

Are you obligated to work with this Real Estate Broker?
Do you have a signed Buyer Brokerage Agreement or similar Contract binding you to work with them?

If not, perhaps you should move on to another Real Estate Agent.

If you feel a complaint is justified:

You could speak to their Broker or Manager if they are not a Broker-Owner.

If you feel they violated a Law,
you can complain to the California Department of Real Estate
Best wishes to you,
