Unwavering Commitment to Service
The last three Short sales I participated in were all different. One closed in 21 days, another took 8 months and the last took 4 months all from contract to closing date. It does depend on the lender. I also believe it depends on the how much contact the person working on the short sale (seller side) keeps with the lender as well as how they handle the contact at the lenders office. If you are working with the lender you need to stay in contact, get them everything they request in a timely matter, follow-up and be professional at all times while documenting every step of the way.
If you are working on a short sale, good luck.
