There's probably a number of approvals needed internally at the bank, so you need to give it some time and be patient when making an offer on a short sale or for a bank-owned home such as this one.
With a bank as the seller, consider this the "wild, wild west of real estate". There are no rules. The banks are over worked and under staffed and only work business hours, unlike family owned properties.
Be prepared with patience and tenacity. Go to my blog where I have posted several articles on foreclosures and short sales to get an idea of what you are in for. Under "Catagories" look for "Foreclosures".
THAT PROPERTY IS IN A SHORT SALE. THAT MEANS THAT THE BANK CAN TAKE ANYWHERE FROM 3 TO AS MUCH AS 8 WEEKS FOR AN APPROVAL OF YOUR OFFER. IF THE SHORT SALE HAS ALREADY BEEN APPROVED BY THE BANK THEN IT MAY TAKE MUCH LESS TIME TO GET AN APPROVAL.
