In my opinion it is a removable heat source, many home owner's opt to take pellet stoves when they move. I agree it should not have been listed as a heat source in the MLS. There is a permanent form of heat in the house, so no foul play, probably just an oversight.
I would probably wait a while if prices are still declining in your area.
Erin, you should have no problem getting a va loan if you are VA eligible.
Rob, The downfall of a Short sale is it can take a few months to find out if the bank that holds the mortgage and any investor's involved will accept the offer. You can get some great deals right now if you have the time to wait. Mar

We have a long way to go before foreclosures go away...many more to come I am sure...
Usually 5-6 % is typical with financing. Should be much less as a cash deal unless property tax is very high. Also if it is a bank owned. Property they may require the buyer to pay all transfer tax
Go into "my zillow" click on listings, click on listing, click on edit.
The same thing happened to one of my clients, unfortunately the banks are favoring cash offer's, they are cleaner and faster. They held my buyer's offer and countered an investor's cash offer to get it up in price. My buyer's did not get the property, the investor's cash counter was accepted. It is a common practice right now. I personally think it stinks, but not much we can do about it. Also, I never send a good faith check until you have an accepted offer,I prefer to send a copy of your good faith check, this way your ck is not floating around and possibly lost.
