I have another short sale success story to report. Just last month, I closed a Coast Hills short sale that was approved within two days of submitting an offer to Coast Hill’s representative. Coast Hills is a local credit union and working with a local entity is very different from working with a national bank. An appraisal had already been completed and the sellers financials were already on file — so they did not require these documents to be resubmitted. In total, this short sale closed within 65 days of it being placed on the market.
So, beginning to end, this was a two month process for the seller and very much mirrored the timeline of a traditional sale. I think the buyer was shocked given what everyone says about short sales. But, not every short sale is a long drawn out experience. Many smaller banks have much shorter response times on their short sale files. The reality is that a short sale does not take months and months to process, and if you can get your file to a decision maker quickly, you will usually get a quick decision.
