While no two transactions are exactly alike, a non-approved short sale can take up to eight month to close. Not only does a short sale require buyers and sellers to reach an agreement, but the banks and mortgage companies that hold the loans. An approved short sale it can take between thirty to sixty days to close.

Best of Luck,

There is no hard and fast rule regarding approved/non-approved short sale timelines. Every short sale is different due to all of the moving parts - number of liens, seller's financial position, servicer, investor that owns the loan etc.
