Short sale and bank comes back with a high counterIt's been only a few weeks awaiting for short sale approval and the bank already countered my offer with 525K. My original offer was 465K. The comparables seems to be around my offer price so I'm not sure why the bank's asking for so much. I know the BPO must have been high but still. I'm going to counter at 470K final offer. Does anyone think this has a chance? I don't think so but my agent seems to think there is a good chance. She plans to send in lower comparables with my counter.I haven't been looking for houses but after receiving that counter, I'll probably continue my search. I heard it can take a few weeks to a month to answer that counter. What a waste...July 11 2012 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
