Hi, all. I am currently in the middle of trying to purchase my first home. I received word that the seller accepted my offer, but since this is a short sale property, we need to receive approval from the bank. My last contact was a request for me to sign a short sale affidavit last week, which I did. My agent also said 2 appraisals have been filed on the property. (I assume the seller's bank did one and my bank did one.) Unfortunately, I haven't heard anything since. It took a month between the offer and the affidavit request....my agent says we need to just wait...short sales can take a long time. Does this sound like we're moving in the right direction? My apartment lease is up at the end of June and I don't want to be homeless!
