How long does the final review of a short sale offer take?My boyfriend and I put in an offer for a short sale on July 30 2012. It took 4 months for the bank to even respond to our offer. First they countered at asking price, we countered back at 10,000 more than our original offer plus stating we would pay closing cost. Took another two weeks to hear a response and they countered asking us to go up another $10,000, we countered in the middle and went up another $5,000. It took them about a month to respond with news that all the paperwork and the apraisal had expired. So they rescheduled another appraisal and three weeks later we get news that they are finally reviewing our offer and all paperwork has been submitted and they have all the information they need. I am just wondering if we are close to the light at the end of the tunnel?February 14 2013 - Olney00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
