Your agent can follow up with the listing agent - ask if an appraisal has been done, how many loans there are, if they are insured,. Are there other offers? Basically, you can't do anything, but most of the banks seem to have expedited their systems so that 2 months waiting seems like a long time now. The appraiser has 2 weeks to return the appraisal to the bank, the bank has 2 weeks to review it, so generally the earliest you can expect an answer is one month. Keep asking your agent to prod the other agent, and at least give you weekly updates. Good Luck!
