A Buyer's Quick Guide to Short Sales - Part 2 of 5

Decide if you have the patience that will be required of you as a buyer in a short sale

In being consistent with Ada County's real estate history, it will take between 4 weeks to 4 months to get a response from the short sale lender. This time frame can vary dependent on a number of factors that involve the short sale lender(s), type and number of loans involved, loss severity, and the capability of the person negotiating the short sale for the Seller. Some deals can be found going the short sale route but be honest with yourself. If you don’t have the patience to work through a 4 week to 4 month time frame a short sale might not be the best fit for you.
