Another good thing to do is to have your agent check whether a Notice of Trustee's Sale (auction date) has be recorded. If the auction date is coming up, then you would also need to check with the listing agent to see that this date has been postponed in order to finalize the details of the short sale.
Hope that helps.
1. Notice of Default (NOD, minimum 90 days)
2. Notice of Sale (minimum 28 days)
You're already past that.
Have your agent (if you're working with one) contact a title company and find out when the NOD and/or NOS has been filed, then see if there is a schedule auction date. You can even get a phone number for the trustee and contact them to get the latest on their timeframes.
There are several factors that can effect the timing of a short sale, one of the most important is the experience of the listing agent.
If you don't have help, feel free to give me a ring or shoot me an e-mail and I'll point you in the right direction.
