Short sales and Countrywide
The latest that I've heard on short sales is that it's taking Countrywide over 12 weeks to approve them. This info is from a Realtor colleague with 4 short sale properties where Countrywide has the 1st note. In other words, if you make an offer on a short sale property, don't expect to hear anything for, uh, awhile. OMG, why? Apparently, Countrywide is completely backed up on processing these -- I'd say they're more likely overwhelmed.
