Fastest Short Sale Approval Ever?

Real Estate Agent with Solid Source Realty GA| Metro Atlanta |

Just got a short sale approval letter within 48 hours of submitted contract.  Lender is allowing 30 days to close and  offering the sellers $3,000 cash at closing!  Sellers were not expecting the cash at closing because they were previously told they did not qualify. Just imagine if more approvals could happen this fast......


Now on to the inspections......

Christina - that is the quickest that I've heard of.  What bank was so on top of things to give you such a quick approval?

Sounds like you have one of the roughly 700 HAFA Short Sale approvals ever give. That's like hitting the lotto!

@Tni - Thanks!

@Stacey - Litton Loan is who is servicing. I hope you will have a great outcome with your deals.

@Tony - Litton Loans.  In my research of them, most agents have good things to say about their short sale process.

@Jay - Thanks!

@SaraMana Properties - I does feel that way!
