You just now mentioned VA (Veterans Administration) . . . . but I thought you were planning on using an FHA Loan Guarantee.

This was a short this is not accurate.

The bottom line is you're lucky it was only a $100 loss. Around here I would not let my buyers do an inspection without lender approval first. The buyers can back out of a deal for any reason on a short sale, including a better house coming on the market. Short sales come with risk, and you need to figure out if you want to take on the risk or not.

I just noticed all of these threads you started. Maybe you should find a new agent if you are not getting answers to all of your questions? You are asking agents who do not represent you for legal advice. Go find yourself a bank owned house or a normal retail property and forget about short sales. There will be much less stress on everyone.

Please tell me that this is a joke, and you aren't suggesting this as something for buyers/agents to do.
