am a cash buyer and have been waiting for approval of short sale for 2 months. There is another house that I see that I want to buy. It's also a short sale. Both sales are wells Fargo mortgages. Can I put in multiple contracts to ensure that I get one of these properties?

Would you do that if they were not short sales? What would your plans be if more than one short sale were approved at the same time? Buy all of them?

The likelihood of that happening is almost nil. No I would not be able to buy two houses but from the buyer's point of view...If this was a non-short sales listing, I have see where buyer have,submitted multiple bids. I just don't want to,waste my time...

A "bid" and a contract are two totally different things.   A bid is just offer.  A contract is a legal binding instrument.  Are you going to disclose to the listing agent that you are placing multiple offers and also accepting multiple contracts?

This is one reason why we require buyer inspections immediately after owner acceptance, not after lender approval.  It prevents the seller's property from being tied up by a buyer who may have submitted multiple offers, with the intent of walking away from most of them with the post approval inspedtion period.

After 2 months, assuming the package was complete, and timely submitted, you should be close to an answer.

I would say this would be a material fact that you should disclose to all parties since acceptance of one offer would affect your ability to close the other offer/contract. It would be ill-advised to play these shenanigans.
