Also, Josh, can you tell me what a note like this means? -
"PREQUAL LETTER FROM A LOCAL COUNTRYWIDE OFFICE MUST ACCOMPANY ALL OFFERS"
Is Countrywide requiring that a loan on the property go through them? What if you were going to pay cash or borrow from a different lender?
You must have a pre qual letter or proof of funds presented with all short sale and foreclosure offers. Countrywide wants one from their local branch, but you are in no way obligated to use them.
