Can you have an active short sales listing in the MLS and have a sale submitted to the bank?There is a listing in the MLS. My broker called to show and the listing brokerage allowed us to see the property. No mention of a contract already submitted to the seller until asked for a property condition disclosure prior to writing an offer. None in the MLS. The selling broker said that there was already a sale submitted however not accepted by the seller or the bank. They told my broker that if we wrote the offer it would simply be a back up to the first offer. My broker said that it could take time however if we wanted to submit an offer he will write it up. That in most cases there isnt a back up but both would be reviewed prior to the acceptance ( if any) of a contract. The one that benefits the seller and bank would probably get signed. The Selling broker still hasn't provided the condition disclosure which makes me not feel like he will work well with us. My brokers isn't discouraged and simply says he will eventually need to provide if we make it a contingency of the offer.
