Why would anyone in their "right mind" increase a price of a house that is already not selling ??
Good question. If no one is buying at lower prices chances are it won't sell at a higher price. Maybe it was a short sale and bank came back with a higher value?

If a house is on MLS then is it is a straight forward process. If it is not and auction is on court steps then you need to be careful and do you homework.

Can you buy back your own short sale property legally if it goes up for sale again?
Hello Mike,

Realtors are not lawyers and can not give out legal advice, BUT. It is totally not legal to buy back a property that you've sold via short sale in the past.
