I took a call while I was at a closing yesterday (a month after it was supposed to close, another WOOHOO!) and it was a man named Mike who had read my blog about frustrated sellers in Plainfield. He had made an offer on a short sale and the seller's bank was PNC. Apparently, he was searching for information on how PNC was to work with and came across my blog. He wanted to know how long to expect the process to take. Not sure why he didn't call his agent, but he said before he hung up that if it didn't work out with this offer he may give me a call. Unfortunately for me, he already has the offer in so there won't be any tangible results for me, but it did affirm that ActiveRain works.
Also, to follow up on PNC, I have a listing of my own in which PNC has been fairly good about getting the short sale done. My seller submitted all of the short sale packet docs in January. PNC had the appraisal done in April. I found a buyer at the end of May and after about a month I received a response from PNC. We've had numerous contacts with David at PNC. PNC asked for an additional $1500 which the buyer agreed to pay and I'm hoping for a written approval from the bank soon.
