When does a lender typically get a BPO/APPRAISAL done during a Short Sale?We put in an offer and have had decent communication,mainly asking us for updated paperwork etc. but we thought at least we were hering something from the lender. But our realtor just asked the sellers realtor about the BPO results and the sellers agent says that it hasn't been done yet, but we thought it would be done when the lender received an offer, now we are discouraged again since the BPO hasnt even been done. And do the lenders always do a BPO/APPRAISAL in a Short Sale? We already realize Short Sales can take a long time and we also already know that lenders work at their own pace.August 18 2013 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
