Your agent could and should attempt to check in regularly in an effort to keep you up to date.
Let the agents do the job they are getting paid to do and donâ€™t think that you can make the situation better by meddling.
Of course, you can keep looking in the mean time and something better could come along. Bank's loss, your gain. Until you have confirmed acceptance of their acceptance of your offer, you are free to move on to another property if you so choose.
Like mentioned before it can take months if you are the first buyer in. If you are not the first round buyer it could take less time. I have had an offer through short sale be accepted within days. Also like mentioned the lien holders will only discuss the process with people who have authorization.
I would make sure that you have received a fully executed purchase contract and are the only buyer with an offer in on the property. Short sales need extreme patience.
Good Luck with your offer.
The Asset Manager will not disclose any information that you are not a registered party to;
You are not on the Loan, you are not the homeowner; they will not talk to you
It is very hard for a Realtor to get on the approved list, an outsider doesn't stand a chance.
Why aren't you talking to your Buyer's Agent; or are you just not believing them?
It can take months, (literally) to get an answer; didn't your Agent tell you that you have to be patient. Not being patient won't help at all.
