Freddie Mac REO Illinois contingency start timeHello. Does anyone know when the clock starts ticking to get the contingencies done oon a Freddie Mac property? I've read that it starts on verbal acknowledgement of verbal acceptance on the internet. Our realtor says it doesn't start until we get the addendums signed back to us from the seller.
