Chase Short Sale ExtensionHello,I am in the final process of purchasing a house on a short sale, and in the very last week (this past week) when we were supposed to close, the underwriter for my loan requested a desk review of my appraisal on Monday (we were supposed to close Friday). My broker assured me this wouldn't be a big deal as it typically takes 24 hours in our area and was likely because the house was appraised for significantly more then our purchase price, however two days went by and we heard nothing. It turns out the person it was sent to "declined" the desk review, which I guess means they didn't want to do it. My mortgage broker who deals with a lot of short sales told me in her 30 years in the business, she had never seen that happen before.Flashforward two days before closing (Wednesday), it was sent out again, and two more days go by, to the closing date, and it was "declined" by two more people for the desk review. Chase granted us an extension over the weekend, however the desk review still wasn't in by 5pm Friday as we were told it would be by the person conducting it. At this point, it means we won't be closing on Monday either unless through some miracle the desk review gets in very early Monday morning.My question to those that have dealt with Chase is, how easy has it been to get extensions on short sales with them lately? Apparently due to this snag my loan has been "fast tracked" my mortgage broker tells me, and as soon as the underwriter gets the desk review, we will be able to close within 24 hours or possibly the same day if it's in very early. I would hate for this whole thing to fall apart due to a denied extension when we are on the cusp of closing, only requiring a few days at the most to close. .Thanks.April 28 2012 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
