I have put in an offer for a short sale purchase. This home had an offer that was accepted by the bank and then had the buyer pull out at last minute. I put in my offer at the same price it was previously approved at by Chase. I was told that because of how far it had went through the proccess prior to my offer that I could get an approval in 3-4 weeks.
I have asked my realtor to please make sure that the listing agent is giving regular follow ups that include e-mail and fax as i have read in many places that this really helps. My realtor wrote me back with this...
"I will caution you that there's a fine line to asking an agent for updates and progress of the file and telling them how to do their job. I don't want the agent to get upset because of your requests and not want to help this along"
This makes me very nervous of my realtor not being strong enough to make sure things are being taken care of correctly.
What do I do. I really want this house, and I don't want to wait longer then is nescasdary because of a lack of follow up by the realtor.
Can I fire my realtor and hire a short sale specialist as I found out my realtor has only closed 1 short sale even though she has been in the business 20 years.
Will firing her ruin the entire deal and I will have to resubmit everything and start over?
What else if anything can I do on my side to make sure my concerns are being taken seriously and thta the realtors involved are on their game?
Thank you in advance for any help
