Short Sale Timeline

Short Sales usually take 90 days to close. They can take longer ... and the final closing date is contingent upon the lenders responsiveness during the process. The "traditional" short sale with most large lenders is a FIVE (5) PHASE PROCESS taking place over a 12 to 15 week period. Phase 1 begins the day a complete short sale package with a binding offer is submitted to the lender. And the process unfolds from there. Below you'll find a complete account of the short sale process, where we are and what to expect next. We provide updates to you every Friday afternoon between 1pm and 5pm and on an "as-needed" basis.

Phase 1: Submission & Confirmation Process (1 to 2 weeks)

In the first two weeks of the short sale process our team works to gather all necessary documents to compile a complete short sale package. Depending on the banks process ... it takes 1 to 2 weeks for a completed package to be confirmed recieved by the lender. Below you'll find a link to the complete short sale package and dates for submission and confirmation of receipt.
