B of A short sale help!My wife and I are currently in the a short sale purchase in the Lehigh Valley region of PA. Our offer was accepted by the sellers 5/25/13 and submitted to the bank 5/27/13. The house was listed at 286k and we offered 295k with 3% seller assist. Apparently the house was under contract for about a month before we saw it come back on the market because the buyers walked away. We were told that the process was actually moving very quickly for the previous buyers so we were confident it would be quick for us as well. Our initial close date was scheduled for 6/28/13 however the bank extended the close date until 7/10/13 around 6/18/13. Because we were told the process would be quicker than usual we got a home inspection done within the first week under contract and our mortgage approved/ interest rate locked. We have yet to hear anything from the bank regarding our offer being approved, because our rate is only locked until 7/28/13, what do you think the odds are that we will actually close by then?? Is this normal for a bank to set a close date before the offer is actually approved??July 02 2013 - Lehigh Valley00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
