A local Real Estate agent can run this down for you. You can contact the agent who helped you buy your home or perhaps another agent who responds to your question may be willing to help.
You could search the county records site online, but this may be difficult.

Since you asked, I wouldn't, not yet anyways. Here in Tucson, AZ I think the market is good for a first time home buyer or anyone looking to buy for primary residence. However, as an investment, with investor rates and etc? I still feel there are better options for an investment, less risk and more upside and no maintainance Vs owning property.

Best of luck.

Jesse Sierra answered:

Just wondering, did you ask the seller(s) to pay for closing costs?
Talk to your lender about that or ask your agent to extend the closing date by 3 days.

Hope this helps,

Find an agent in the area. Any agent should be able to search for owners willing to consider this option. Before you select and agent to work for you however talk to a few and find out about their experience with Lease Options. This is a specialty where you will benefit from an agent with previous experience handling them. ... more

John Souerbry answered:
Definately not - as long as you intend to buy both. It's always considered bad manners, some might say unethical, to submit two offers when you only intend to buy one. I'm sure you're about to receive a boatload of comments why this is an unethical practice, but I think you already understand that, so I'll close out by saying best of luck. ... more

Not sure how it could be a short sale if the property is worth more than the seller owes.

You should have a copy of your real estate contract you signed. All the terms and conditions are set there. There should be dates on when escrow should close, etc. Its simple, if "A" doesn't occur, then "B" should happen.

All buyers and sellers agreed to the terms of the contract and should follow it accordingly.

Good Luck,

John Juarez answered:

My guess is that you are dealing directly with the listing agent on an REO that you are trying got purchase. You should get an experienced local REALTOR® to help you. After all, who do you think will be answering your questions here on Trulia? If you had your own REALTOR®, one experienced in handling REO transactions, you would be told that REO sellers often counter verbally or by email. If you agree to the counter, you can expect to receive a written addendum (agreement) in a few days that will set out the terms of the agreement that the seller is willing to embrace.

Please…get a REALTOR® on your side…the seller will pay the commission.

Don Tepper answered:
You produce evidence, regardless of what form it's in.

For example, if you plan on selling stock, produce your stock broker's statement.

If you literally have it in cash, you might be better off putting it in the bank to prove it's somewhere.

If it's in the form of precious metals--say gold--produce evidence (such as the depository statement) showing the quantity of gold you own.

Those are just a few examples.

Hope that helps.

I understand it is very upsetting and seems to happen more often that I would like these days however by best advise is to look forward not back. It will only hurt you not them, everyone usually gets what is coming to them in one form or another. If you believe in God that I think perhaps he has a better plan for you. Perhaps you will find a house you like even more!

Best of Luck

Emily Knell answered:
There are a lot of variations when an agent says "short sale approved". It could have been approved months ago at a higher price that is unreasonable today.

OR It could have been approved with a previous buyer

What seems like an EZ PZ thing to us Realtors & the steps the bank has to take to just approve another buyer is a different story.

I have a short sale right now that was approved with a buyer, 1st buyer walked, back up buyer won, however before they can close the bank needs to Change the name on the approval letter & unfortunately for the bank it's not a simple matter of having a secretary just re-type it. It has to go back to upper management & blah blah blah. It took Wells Fargo, for example another 27 days to approve my back up buyer, even though the NET to the bank didn't change at all.

If your offer & the previous buyer's offer is different & the net has changed or is less than it was before, the bank has to re-approve the new net.

If you would like to email to me your exact situation, I'm confident I can give you a more accurate answer.
