Hopefully you are now the proud owner of a home, but just to clarify in the Placer County MLS (Metrolist) the rules for short sales require when an offer has been sent to the Lender for approval the status be listed as "Active Short Contingent" once Lender approval of the short sale offer is completed, the listing is supposed to be changed to "Pending" and when closed "Sold" (the best one!).
In my case The sellers agent has the home listed as "Active" even though we are qualified and they already accepted our offer? I guess maybe the bank has to accept that loss and our offer before saying it is "Pending"? This is my first house so I am new to the lingo and how "Short Sales" work.
Well Kid-O, I envy you! Enjoy the sweet peace that comes with the very act of closing the door to your very own home sweet home!
Everything looks better tastes better feels better in your own home!
Blessings & Enjoy!!!
Sometimes in short sales a listing agent may set a listing to pending in cases where the Sellers have expressed that they no longer want potential buyers intruding in their daily lives after an initial and backup offers have been tabled.
