Down Payment Assistance in KY:
I'm a broker and appraiser and do a ton of REO appraisal work as these homes start the process - the quick answer that you want is rare at best. I have trouble contacting handlers, reps and agents and I'm supposedly in the loop. From the buyer side, I've had success in getting answers by continual pounding and having offers that are clean and simple - and success is about 70% response and about a 50% closing ratio. This is the buy side, the listing side can be just as miserable trying to get them to respond to anything.
There's no system and there's no logic to any of this - you need a jackhammer agent and you need to understand that there really is no sense of urgency or even concern on the part of the lenders/disposition companies...it's just another house to move in a pile of homes.
Let me know if we can help -
Sometimes it depends on the agent. For instance, some listing agents like to hold offers until they find a buyer that want to buy that property, so that way the listing agent can get both sides of the deal. Also, if the property is going up for auction, then the bank will place the offer on hold. However normally the banks can take from 4 hours to up 72 hours to respond to an offer. If the offer is reasonable then the bank will respond back quickly. Are you working with an agent when placing offers. If so make sure agent gets a timeframe from the listing agent on when the seller will respond. Then that agent need to follow up consistently on the offer. If you are putting offers on short sale properties then you might wait 2 weeks or more.
