The agent probably should've called you back and told you what the situation was. Furthermore, he/she should've asked you for your highest and best offer since it was a multiple offer situation. Every situation is different and I don't know the specifics but I would be a bit upset if these steps weren't taken by the agent.... more
Hi Julia. I am a Realtor, and Realtor trainer, in San Bernardino/Redlands area of California. I think you will find most REO deals go thru in about 30 days. However, there are plenty of exceptions. Bring cash and they will close your deal a lot sooner quite often. Even with a mortgage, often they will accomodate a quick closing.
Then there are some, like Wells Fargo right now, where you will be lucky to close in 45 days I think. They are considered just really backlogged.
Several of the banks are attaching "per diems" to escrows closing slowly because you or your lender are not getting the information to the escrow company fast enough. The Calif. Assn of Realtors legal staff are telling us that the courts don't like the per diems and will not back them in court cases, but I think it best you pay them respect for the time being.
Hope this helps.
