OK, this is twice in one night! You are going to have to give me a call for sure so we can talk about BOTH of these properties!! This one and the one on Cherrie st. in Palm Bay.
I do have one question.....Are you only interested in homes that are named after fruit? Just kidding.

This home is actually a historical landmark that, at one point, was listed at over $600,000! This is a unique and lovely home with TONS of character!
We have alot of information to cover soon, so call me asap.
Even if it turns out that neither of these particular homes is right for you, I can help you find a home by searching and researching through the thousands that are available on the Brevard MLS.
Here's my information once again:
James Flanigan, Realtor

Don't hesitate or delay! We have a host of financing programs and options also available to you. Now is the best time we may ever see to buy a home here on the Space Coast.

I hope I will be talking to you soon. I am excited to tell you about all of the advantages that Brevard County and it's real estate have to offer.
Have a great Day, I hope to hear from you soon.

James Flanigan, Realtor
Coldwell Banker Coast Realty

Spiceman, I myself have not heard that a short sale went so fast as yours did, before the shaor sael wa acepted by your mortgage compnay. It also seesm that they said you would have to wait three months and the short sale would have to have been set for sometime in December or january by what you have said.
Now when you filld out the paper work, the house wasn't even listed yet with a Realtor, and had the right to pick t the time. This is because the bank does not set foreclosure papers in unless you signed an agreement stating you wiol sign the deed over to them in Lew OF Foreclosure. So Something doesn't souud right. Where did this second offer come from if your home was not listed witha Realtor? If it was by one of the Mortgage People, they have possibly violated a law or two in the first place.
Alos, you should not be getting hit with any tax burden. That was put on hold last year for owners of prioperties that have lived in ther home for two years or more and so on. Also, if the mortgage company agreed to the short sale, then they should not have put such items on your credit report. That was the purpose of such an action. Also being you are the owner still, this should have been a thrid party approval. This means you would have had to agre to the offer first by signing a contract for sale to list, then the offer first, then it would be sent to the bank by your Realtor.
I would make some inquiries and if you get the run around all of a sudden, then contact the attorney general of your state, and or get a lawyer quickly to listen to what has transpired and see what the lawyer says. Someone saw this as a deal and started what I consider an illegal transaction to get what they wanted. You got shafted from what I read. But this is my opinion from how short sales are done here in Florida and other states that I know of. I wish you well.

November traditionally begins to increase property buying activity in Florida, but the market gets into the best selling time from January through April in the winter season. You have unfortunately decided to sell in a down market for sellers. You may not be able to sell for the price at which you purchased. Think long and hard though about whether to price your home to sell and bite the bullet now or deal with maintaining a Florida home long distance and gradually follow the market which may be down some more before it starts to stabilize and slowly increase. The recent national financial crisis certainly increases the stress on the housing market.

Another idea is to hire a Realtor to lease the property so that the Realtor will manage and check on the property in your absence. If you can hold on with a lease that will NOT cover your expenses but only help to offset your costs partially, then this might be the best answer. Be sure that you have your Realtor screen the applicants for credit report and references. You should have first month rent, last month rent and Security Deposits in place also. Good luck to you.
