I do not trust the Listing Agent.
They do not have your best interests at heart.
You should have gotten your own Agent. Too late!
You can at least talk to your Escrow Officer; they work for the two Principles.
Ask them what if the Bank has accepted.
Ask them when the Escrow is due to close.
While you're at it, ask them for a copy of your HUD1.
You'll find out how CLOSE you are.
Good luck and may God bless
I agree with James, I would not have used the listing agent to represent you as well.
In a short salemostl of the shots are called by the seller's mortgage company
When they are ready to work on your file, they will. That's when you will begin to receive communication from them.
Until that happens, it is just a waiting game
1st, you have to get an accepted contract from the bank
Once you get this, you should be able to follow a standard closing pattern
Without this document, signed by the selling bank or lender, you have no control over the process
Good Luck !

Closing dates for "short sales" are normally generated by the lender not the agents. So unless this information came directly from the lender, it will likely not be accurate.
Short sales are tricky business and require time and patience on part of the parties involved. If there is an attorney championing this transaction, they would likely be able to provide you with the most accurate information.
Once you have received a written contract acceptance with the lender requiring your signature you can begin to anticipate that you are getting close. But for now, it appears that the lender is going through their process gathering information and processing your file.....at a time when the lender has internal approval, things normally happen quickly but until then try to remain patient and be ready when the time arrives.
