So, you have made an OFFER, a Shortsale Offer, through a Realtor, and you are waiting for the Bank to respond:
Understand that the home owners accepting the offer is almost meaningless:
The homeowner has to have their "hardship" accepted by their Lender,
and the Bank would have to accept the offer.
I'm concerned that if you have a Buyer's Agent working for you; why you would have to ask us this question.
You do have a Buyer's Agent representing you?
You didn't just give an OFFER to the homeowner, thinking that that would do the trick, did you?
And the homeowner goes have a genuine "Hardship", right? and they have applied to their Lender for their hardship to be accepted, right?
And the homeowner is not just Upside/Down, right?
Good luck and may God bless
