Celia, How is what you're offering not short sale fraud? I have NEVER heard of a lender allowing a short seller to stay in the home after close. As far as I know, that's mortgage fraud.
Thanks for all of these great links!
Do you need only general contractors? I have contacts here in Los Angeles. Contact me directly. firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are speaking of a trustee sale, or foreclosure in auction at the court house, these sales require all cash, no contingencies.
I would approach the agent first and document asking them to remove it. If they refuse, then report.
Or you can call.. (206) 470-7000
Did someone call you Heidi? Here is the corporate address and phone # 999 3rd AveSeattle, WA 98104(206) 470-7000
If you own the property, you can "claim your home" and edit all kinds of fun sstuff, including square footage.
Thanks so much for the advice!
Hi John, The only reason I can think of, is that there might have been some homes aquired in foreclosure. When a bank forecloses on a proerty, it still gets recorded as a sale and a very low one as well. This goes into public record, which is likely what zillow uses to compute value based on sales in the area. This is the best explanation I can give you.
