Short Sale Offer QuestionI made an offer on an Approved Short sale with the approved price being $155k. I offered $155k + 3% closing. The Banksaid right off the bat they will not cover closing but the official approval comes from the investor(s) and we've been waiting 3 months for approval or a counter. I then asked my Real Estate agent if we get a counter offer back at $155 if we can counter back with $159k and include the closing costs. She said the bank would most likely not want to do that becuase it's extra paperwork for the bank and they would not do it. Does that make sense? I would walk if the bank is not willing to work on either offer.January 21 2012 - Orlando00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
