Short sale offer but another buyer tryign to get in on the homeHello - I will really appreciate any advice on this issue I am facing. I am in CA and I put an offer on a home 3 months back. The listing agent told us that bank came with counter offer and we accepted the counter offer as well.We also deposited 2000$ money for title comapny which was cashed as well. This is a short sale by BoA but there was some investor involved. Meanwhile the sellers friends got involved and said they want to buy the home. So far bank has seen our offer and they were the back up buyers but now they upped thier offer by 20k compared to our offer and now pushing the seller and selling agent to accpet their offer. We wasted all this time by not looking at any other homes and only relying on this one offer hoping that we will be able to get the house.Can bank still look at this new offer while stil processing our offer and even when the home appraisal is already done by bank and we have accepeted banks counter offer and just waiting for an approval from the investor?Please advice I am so mad now with the whole situation that I am willing to sue the seller as well as the bank if my offer is sidelined and other is accepted. I was in similar situation before where I wanted a home so bad that I was willing to pay a higher price but teh listign agent and seller just sold teh home to thier friends whose price was lower that ours. Had I known this, I could have pursued the house teh same way someone else is pursuing this home now.June 25 2012 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
