Short sale...but something seems "off"We submitted an offer on a short sale in August of last year. The offer was accepted by the home owners in September of last year. It is now January and we still have not received lender approval. The seller's agent claims she has to resubmit the paperwork into the Equator system everytime we ask any questions. This is now the 3-4 time our paperwork has been resubmitted. Supposedly the case was assigned to a negotiator 3 months ago but we've not heard anything on that front either. Then this morning while browsing homebuying sites I noticed that the price had been reduced 20K despite our recent appraisal of the home at 6,000 more than we offered.I'm beginning to think our offer was declined but instead of telling us that the agents just keep resubmitting the paperwork to make it look like it's only a matter of time. Is it normal for the price to drop on a shortsale and the potential buyers not be informed? Is it normal to have to resubmitting the same paperwork into the Equator system?I think we're being played for stupid right now but since this is our first time we don't really know.January 17 2013 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
