Just put in an offer on a short sale yesterdayAsked our buyer broker if we should put in contigency clause of 30-60 day time frame for an answer....she sale no. We have heard nothing from seller or the bank (it's only been a day). I want to know if we can be released at any time as there is not a signed contract from all parties at the table. Also have second thoughts on this realtor...can we have a time frame for an answer added to the contract today? Gave her a 1000 dollar check and just read that buyers usually don't do that in a short sale unless the offer is accepted by all parties. Is this true maybe this realtor is not looking out for our best interests??March 15 2012 - Orlando00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
