The process could actually take less than 60 days in most cases if your agent knows the ropes. Certain lenders are easier to work with than others.

Hi Michael,

Like Bret said that this home has already have a contract on it. In most short sale cases, it will take up to 6 months to close a deal just depends on the bank and the closer from Title Company. Its a lenghty process.

Please let me know if you need help search for other homes in Grand Prairie area.

Michael, This property is a short sale. It shows on the MLS to be Active - Contingent which means that a buyer exists and the parties are awaiting approval from the lender. You could submit an offer if you are really interested. But, it is likely that your offer would be in a back up position depending on the circumstances of the first offer. If you have cash and have some flexibility on your closing date (if needed by the seller), I would imagine that the bank would be very inclined to seriously consider your offer as well. You should have a short sale expert to assist you. I am certified in short sales and have successfully closed many of them in the Metroplex. Please feel free to call or text me your email address and we can discuss the potential to view the property and submit an offer. Thank you!
