home sale or deed in lieuThere will be a lot of details left out of this to hopefully make it, initially, short.I have been trying to sell a home for about 5 years. Over a span of perhaps as much as 2 years, this has been handled by a Broker.The home was placed as a possible short sale within the last year or so.The potential buyers are living in the home paying rent and making repairs as a lead in to their eventual purchase.We have recently discovered that the broker has not been turning over paperwork to the lender "in a timely fashion".Hence, all bets are off as all parties have apparently been screwed over by this unscrupolous broker and I have started "deed in lieu" proceedings.However, the potential buyers still want to buy the home. hey have requested loan numbers to call the lender and see what can be done. I am fairly certain they think they can still do this via the short sale.OK, hope this is enough to help make it understandable.Appreciate any advice or suggestions.November 28 2012 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
