Yes. Unless you (or your brother) can pay the deficiency and bring the loan current, you have to move. That is, the bank has the right to foreclose, and apparently intends to do so. Cash for keys at least gives you something. Take it, and find some other place to live. If you decline, they'll foreclose anyway and you'll receive nothing.

Hope that helps.

The carbon monoxide detectors are required by the State along with some other minimum requirements. Your agent is most likely not actually giving you the run around but perhaps isn't an excellent communicator. Ask your agent to explain everything that is required of you as the seller. Read over your contract, it should be spelled out in there.

Dear Lynda,
Yes, I would say to remove old carpeting and replace it. If you can paint the interior that will also help improve the way your home shows to potential buyers.

Short sales take months. If you had a buyer come in next week then yes, otherwise your timeline is pushing it.

Contact the listing agent for a showing. Or contact a local Realtor to assist you.

You CAN get a short sale approved if you have a 2nd lien. You could even get a short sale approved having 3 loans. I've closed them before.

Ultimately it's about showing the bank what they're going to NET, with a buyer's offer & showing them that they will make MORE now, by taking an offer for short sale than if they just let it go to foreclosure.

You CAN get this done, you need a good agent working for you. Not any ole' agent is good at doing short sales. I work with homeowners in Southern California & in Las Vegas, although I live in SoCal. Many of my clients are far away from where I live & then the bank is in Texas or New York, ultimately it doesn't matter where the listing agent is, so long as they're good at negotiating with the banks to get them to approve your deal.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel too, you will qualify to buy again in just 2yrs with an FHA loan & 3.5-5% down, you can get back into the market at the bottom at build your equity back up again!

please let me know if you have any questions.

Are you using an experienced short sale agent? That makes all the difference in the world. Have you received a notice of default? Has CW told the agent negotiating the short sale of an auction date?

I am more than happy to help you out. ICall me at 925-824-4877 to discuss specifics. I have some basic questions to ask you. If it meets our guidelines, I'll have a senior negotiator from Short Sale Sheep on it Monday. Larry has not been turned down yet...but we ARE selective of what we take on.

You need to go to your town hall and go to the assessors office (they may have the info online so check their website first) you will need to pull the tax card which will show you who the owner is. If your town does not update regularly you may have to go to the county registry of deeds to look it up there. hope this helps ... more

Beth answered:
Actually, I found the answer myself....and no, the property has not sold as of yet. It was listed 15 days ago. Not sure if that is a "re-listing" with same agent, or a new listing with a new agent.
