Many of these institutions are overwhelmed with short sale requests. I had one where the institution didn't tell me their preferred method of contact, yet finally after I reached the right person, things moved along fairly quickly. My buyer nearly decided to flee, but ended up buying the property. As these go, it's pretty much up to the lender as to how quickly they respond to the short sale offer. If you're working with a real estate agent, the agent needs to keep on top of the process to make sure all documents have been submitted correctly by either you, the agent, or the seller and their agent. Best to you!

As everyone has said, with short sales no matter what the question, there can be several different answers!

It depends on a lot of factors. I actually had listed, got an offer and got it accepted within 3 days -
But I did a l-o-t of schmoozing on that one... I am proud of it though.
I have not had one go "months" usually 3 weeks.
I also do a lo of follow up work and get myself as an approved representitive for my homeowners.. and I try to find out who is approved to speak to the bank when I have a buyer for a short sale. Cuts the red tape down to a minimum.
