Short Sale-- How do I get out of contract if I find a better homeI am thinking of pursuing a shortsale and I want to know what type of a clause to put in on my offer that would make it possible for me to cancel the contract if I am unhappy with the amount of time it takes to get bank approval. The reason for this is if I find something better while I wait..i'd like to cancel the short sale contract and move on a property that could close a lot faster.any help on a clause would be helpful!August 02 2013 - Boston00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
