Is there a chance that the bank will negotiate with me regarding repairs on a short sale?My offer has been approved on a short sale property. It's an old house so we had a foundation specialist come out for inspections. It turns out that the home's field stone foundation is unstable. The specialist estimated it to be a 35-40k fix. Our offer was only 10k below the bank's asking price which also happens to be the appraised value of the home. I know short sales are typically sold as is, but do you think there is any way we can get them to negotiate? I don't want to lose this house, we've been dealing with the bank for months.July 21 2014 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
