My question involves real estate located in the State of:
Ok, I am looking at a home that is listed as Short Sale. I contacted a company that is trying to sell this house (was not MLS) and after doing research it ends up the company trying to sell to me does NOT own this house. They simply have an offer in on the house that is pending bank approval.
I contacted the original lister via MLS listing and he confirmed that it is simply just an offer and is NOT a accepted contract. So is it legal for this properties management group to try and sell this house to me (they actually send me a contract to sign) if they don't even own it (or under contract to own it).
It makes no sense, I am advised to simply go to the original lister who represents the owners and make an offer. But I'm trying to figure out if I need to report or do anything with this middle company simply trying to flip something they don't own.
