Good Afternoon Btexpress27,
You have received very good responses. The Short Sale Process requires more time for closing. However, your cash position does put you in a very good position. Of course, no time frame for closing the normal loan process. alos, if you Offer is acceptable to the bank they definitely like the cash closings , if for nothing else the speed of closing .
Please, feel free to contact me through my Trulia profile if you would like to discuss the process of Short Sale and Foreclosure. I specialize in both processes as a Buyer's Agent.
I look forward to hearing back from you and helping you find that perfect home.
Have a Wonderful Day,
