Contracts generally move faster than 2 weeks, however, sometimes asset managers are inundated. If you aren't sure if the communication is good, it's time to talk to your agent and see if you can harness the deal. It's not done until it's done, but real estate sales are complicated with lots of chances for miscommunication. If your agent and you are on the same page, maybe you can see if your agent can talk with the seller's agent, who will then talk to the asset manager. Your agent could emphasize that you want to do this deal, but are anxious to open escrow (give them money in the form of your earnest deposit), and you need to know that this is going to happen, so you can quit looking at other homes, and focus on buying this one!
