According to my resources, this property is owned by Deutsche Bank, I presume through a foreclosure. Deutsche Bank has a substantial portfolio of such home thoughout the state (and country) as does its listing agent. My experience with Deutsche Bank is that the tend to take their time with their responses, however if I understand correctly, you sumitted an offer almost a full month ago and that seems to me quite excessive. I expect to hear within ten business days when making an offer on a bank-owned property - some are faster, some take longer.
My suggestion would be "aggressive patience". Request your agent to review all of the the materials you have submitted thus far to assure nothing has been overlooked. Have your agent contact the listing agent to confirm his reciept and assure you that all materials remain are present and up to date (prequal letters, time to accept...). If your offer was substantially below asking price Deutsche Bank may not respond at all and you may, if you feel the value is there, consider submitting a new offer at a higher price.
I hope this helps. I wish you the best of luck in your purchase.
I am sorry that you have to be patient, but I am assuming you are hoping the Realtor for the seller uses this site based on the "you" in your statement. If she's busy, don't count on it. Patience.
