the agent would not submit the offer to the bank and in a

I placed a cash offer through my buyer agent, but the selling agent would not
submit my offer to the bank for short sale approval. She claims there are two
more offers that were submitted prior to me and the bank has a policy to “view
1 offer at a time”. It makes no sense to me why would the bank not choose the
highest and best offer. The only reason I can think of is that there other offers
are submitted through the same selling agent, so she would get all the

If I am right, what can I do to get my offer to the bank? My “buyer” agent would
not do a thing either.

Law in every state requires S’s REA to present or tell S of EVERY offer as they come in, then S decides if and how to respond to them.

First,the bank doesn’t review and accept offers. They don’t own the property. The seller who is the property owner, reviewes and accepts one of the offers submitted to them.

Second, you can only have one signed contract on a property at a time. To do anything differently would be tortous interference with the in place contract and get the other parties in a legal jam. Once there is an accepted contract on the property no other contract can be signed, except as a back-up to the first if it falls out for some reason.

Third, the bank can only review and approve a short pay-off on a contract that has been accepted by the the seller. Therefore, only one contract can be submitted to the bank at a time since there can only be one contracat in place at a time.
