Ashburn Short Sales: Do Short Sales Really Take 6-8 Months?

Ashburn VA - The Stop Foreclosure Institute recently received a question from John. Here is John's Question.

"I am trying to buy a short sale. I have been waiting on an answer to my offer for 6 months. The agent tells me we should have an answer any day.

But, they've been saying that for a long time already. What should I do? John." Discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale to avoid foreclosure by clicking here.

John, I think you should run for the hills. We see a lot of agents quote 6-8 months for a short sale response. Those agents simply don't know what they are talking about.

We have processed short sales with the most difficult lenders in an average of 2-3 months. The key is aggressive follow up. You have to check on the status of the file twice a week.

The reason a short sale would take 6-8 months on average is because the agent isn't doing that. If it takes more than a week to get a response to a question or call, then we contact the CEO of the lender and the local newspapers.

It has taken a week to get a response to a simple question. We had a short sale negotiator that we had been working with on a file. We had already talked back and forth several times.

He told us that he was waiting on 1 item and then he could make a decision on the short sale. That item was going to be completed in 3-4 days.

We waited a week and then started calling him. I would call and e-mail him once each day. We still hadn't heard from him after a week of e-mailing and leaving messages.

We think that is pathetic and incompetent. Don't you agree? It shouldn't take a professional more than a week to respond to a voicemail, should it?

At that point we contacted the CEO's office. We told them that if we didn't have a response in 24 hours, then we would contact Fannie Mae. (Fannie Mae owned the loan.)

Needless to say, he got back to us right away. Thinking about a short sale?
