“An agent in my office currently has a listing under contract. It is a short sale, the sad thing is that Large National Bank (to remain unnamed) notified the sellers that they had foreclosed a month ago.
Fact is, they had not foreclosed. The employee didn’t know what they were talking about. Valuable time and a buyer were lost during this fiasco. This deal is currently awaiting approval. There is no telling what will happen in the end.
My question is this. What can we do to track the foreclosures and see when the bank is foreclosing. Sandy.”
Here is the answer to Sandy’s Question. The best way that I have seen to track this is by checking the docket.
The docket is the record at the courthouse of everything that is happening on a foreclosure. In some states the foreclosure is a court case and you can track the case.
The bottom line is that your local courthouse will have the best information. Call them and ask for them to explain it to you.
You will need the homeowner’s name and sometimes the court case number. They will explain where the foreclosure is at and how much longer it will be before it is completed. Thinking about a short sale? Visit the Chicago Short Sale Super Man at www.ShortSaleSuperMan.com

Our services have not been reviewed, endorsed, or approved by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?
Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.
However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.
If you stop paying your mortgage, then you could lose your home and damage your credit. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.
This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.
You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.
