simply put, NO. The bank has its process and it takes time to work through it. Im most cases once the offer as been submitted and the short sale package with the seller sinformation has been submitted, the bank has 30 days to assign a negotiator, the negotiator will then review the package, if everything is there they will order a bpo or appraisal. this is uuslaly a 2 week process. if the selle =r is missing anything add those days. Once the negotiator has teh appraisal back, they can submit an approval or what they will approve, usually with 7 days of receiving everything. so best case it is at least 60 days, most cases are 90 and sometimes 3-6 months. what you write for a drop dead date, has no factor in how quick they will work, it could get your offer refused as if tehy do all teh work and you pull out, it will have been a waste of time and money for teh agent, the seller and the bank.
