I just had another Destin Florida short sale approved. Following are my notes starting with the most recent going back to the beginning of the Short Sale Approval Process with Countrywide. This might be useful to show buyers' agents and potential buyers to help them understand some of the processes the listing agent goes through to get approval.

7/2/2008 9:55 AM Calling COUNTRYWIDE cuz buyer says he'll walk if no close by July 8I called Countrywide just now. Negotiator cannot guarantee July 8 -need secondary approval from PMI company- which could take 1-2 weeks more. Negotiator said she will get it to PMI company this morning. Negotiator said only needs approval from PMI company! She said 198,000 offer looks good to Countrywide, and they do not need to run this by the end-investor on the loan. I feel it could take three weeks more, but this looks very positive. Negotiator said to advise buyer "everything looks great". Just need authorization from mortgage insurance company.
