When you say you "started" tron, what do you mean? Hired an agent to represent you? Made an offer on a house? If you do have an agent working on your behalf, not representing the Sellers' interests, you should ask them. Good Luck!

Waiting for what? As has been said, get an agent, get educated and get going.

Hi Tron,

Home purhase process is identical for any type of buyer. Would you mind sharing more specifics about what was done in March?

I hope you have hired an agent to assist you through the process, as well have a good mortgage consultant on your team.

Best of luck!

Hi again Tron....

You must contact your agent and your loan officer. These two folks will be able to answer your question most fully. If you offered a contract on a short sale, buckle up, sit back, as waiting while knowing little of what is happening is typical until the bank either accepts or rejects the offer.

Best wishes, Jim

Not sure what your waiting for. Did you make an offer on a home and are waiting for a response? Are you pursuing a short sale (these can take months) Are you working with a buyer borker?

I would advise you to work with an experienced buyer broker who can help you and honestly most borkers aren't really that experienced.

I've attached a link below to one of the more popular blogs I've posted here on Trulia on how to find a great agent to help you.

I wish you good luck.
