If it's not in writing, it didn't happen. There are certain situations where it's easier to negotiate verbally but I would advise to get everything in writing as soon as you can.

I know in the world of real estate, everyone wants answers within minutes. The ALWAYS connected society we live in today leads all of us in wanting answers within minutes.

The bottom line is, if the expiration has not passed yet, then there is no reason to worry. Do people ignore deadlines and let them pass without responding, yes they do, but even then you have your answer.

I would wait until the expiration passes then ask questions. If you are working with a Realtor, they should be giving you the answers you need. But as far as I can tell from the context of your question, you don't have anything to worry about yet.

I hope this helps, and just be patient for the for the process to play out.

Thank you,

Check with your local Property Appraiser, Tax Collector, or other appropriate Government Office to see what has been Recorded against the Property.

Well the simple answer is if you accept an offer of less than you owe (including fees, taxes, etc) then you will either be talking about a short sale or writing a check to the bank at closing. Neither is a very attractive option unfortunately. Maybe ask your agent to give you some current comps to see what's happened in the two months since you listed your condo. ... more

No it is not unusual to have banks make you pre-qualify with them, as I am seeing more and more relocation companies do the same thing.
They want to assure themselves that the deal will not fall through over financing. Go ahead and do it, you c an still use your own lender. No, it is not unusual for banks to take a LONG time to respond. They are really not in the RE buisness and now are having to juggle a lot of homes to sell. Unfortunately, when you deal with bank properties, they don't care about YOU. They just want to sell if for the best price with the least amount of conditions. If this is the house you want, you just have to be patient.
"as is" means exactly that. If you are concerned, do a inspection before the offer is accepted so you know any defects. Some, ( very few ) will do repaires, most do not.
However, If you really want this home, remember the cleanest offer will win out.
