Recently completed BOA short sale, my seller did not counter back, stayed at original offer, would not/could not bring money to closing or sign promissory note. BOA tried a counter twice, we stayed firm and they approved. Good Luck, you are getting close, it will be over soon, just be ready to close asap after the approval. Note to realtors: stay firm on your commission percentage, we work too hard and long for these short sales to give it up. The banks are automatically going to try to get you to agree to take less, don't do it. They'll agree to the original percentage if you hold firm.
