A note on short sales: I Pre-Qualify all short sales that I may or may not show to a buyer. Factors include the existence of equity loans, who 2nd liens are held or serviced by & the success ratio of the listing agent for closing short sales. If it passes my "smell test" I'll give the green light for my buyer to view a particular short sale.
On avg., there isn't really an avg, but if the listing agent has a high success rate closing their short sales, I'd say an avg. time would be between 60-90 days at the high end.
I don't look back on this same Trulia posting for answers after mine. Shoot me an email directly if you would like to talk about this further.
