House taken off market, but can you still buy it ?
Okay so here's the big issue, and i need professional advice! I wanted to buy a house, the "owner" of the house had gotten the house through an auction, and still had not put the house under her name. She wanted to sell the house within a certain time so the person buying the house (me) can just put the house under my name. Except, that didnt happen on time, so the bank i guess.. took the house off the market.. BUT ITS NOT SOLD YET, and they said that they will be putting it back on the market...soon... but they dont know when. Now i desperately want to buy the house, is there anyway i can contact someone so that i could put it in writing about how much im offering and stuff so they dont put it back on the market and just sell the house to me ? I have a real estate agent, except the real estate agent is sleeping on the job. PLEASE HELP!! IM DESPERATE

Worst case, they don't accept it, it gets put back on the market, and... More

Do you know why it was taken off the market? If you know the bank call them. Get a new agent.

Your agent isn't sleeping on the job, you have a mess on your hands. The "owner" doesn't "own" the house until it is in her name. A person cannot just hold transfer of title, then switch it from the lender to you, it doesn't work that way... More
