Yes. I have had a short sale with Chase and have received an extension. Keep in mind that when you are doing a short sale it is the investor that has to approve the extension, not the bank that it servicing the loan.
I have had the servicer tell me no as soon as I asked without even going to the investor. I knew that the investor was Fannie so I went directly to the investor through HomePath and filed the request. Please note, in order to do this you will need to complete their third party authorization. Within a few days I received an email Fannie alerting me that the extension was approved and that they sent the info to the servicer.
More than likely you will receive the extension. I would not seat over it.
Best of luck to you.

Today I requested an appointment through CSS to show another agents property. This evening I received a call from CSS - the operator stated she was calling on my behalf to request an appointment from me for the other agents property. It it any wonder why I have not received a confirmation yet. The operator is in dire need of training.... more
Interesting question! I just had an appraisal come back badly because the appraiser didn't know the difference between a bi-level (or as you call it a 'hi-ranch', I had never heard it called that before), and a raised ranch. The home in question is a lake front home. A great many lake fronts here are raised ranches to take advantage of the view. The appraiser only counted the upper floor, where the living room, dining room, etc, were located, as square footage, essentially reducing it by half. In fact, at least here in New Jersey, both floors of a raised ranch should be counted as square footage because there is no 'basement' only the first level, which, in this case, consisted of family room, den, laundry room, 4th bedroom and a half bath.
This much I know a raised ranch has the main living area on the second floor, typically consisting of living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom, and smaller bedrooms; and additional living space, family room, office, etc, on the first floor. They are often seen at the water's edge, or in extremely rocky areas where digging a basement is not practical. Bi-levels, on the other hand, have two half staircases at the entrance, one that goes up to the living area, and one that goes down to the 'basement' area.... more

I hate to quibble with Bill's answer but it is incorrect. As the homeowner, you are not obligated to send anything to the lender, and they cannot "accept" an offer since they do not own the home. Only the seller can accept an offer. The lender must "approve" the sale, but they have no legal standing to be a party to the purchase agreement or accept an offer.... more
I have been in real estate for over 20 years having started in the commerical environment. I have never made a cold call to a prospect since entering residential eight years ago. The only calls I make are in direct response to a request for contact.
Be aware, my business is specificly engineered for this outcome. The Craig Proctor program is not solely responsible for the success of my enterprise. However, the insight provided by his program provided the key messages, emotional recognition and appeals for the specific markets I identified.
Craig Proctor, vocation vectors, macro localization, multi-messaging, secondary and tertiary income options, and i & w bots all play key roles feeding my funnel with self selecting buyers and sellers. But it all stated with CP and continues to carry my program forward even though I am NOT a current subscriber. If you are in need of a jump start CP suggestions are effective and incredibly inexpensive to implement.
Be aware, the results reported by CP and the testimonials may be a bit overstated. If you know your market place you can easily scale results accordingly. In todays environment in Florida it becomes crucial to analyze the community mobility factor and tailor the appeal and message accordingly. In closing, understand how (not where) your consumer is finding the information the value then put the CP principles in that environment.... more
