SS closing turn around time


I’m curious to know what has been the shortest, and also the longest, time it has taken to close a short sale from beginning to end. Is there a general rule of thumb, or does it really just depend on the lien holder?

thanks all…

My longest and first short sale took half a year from the time I started working with a couple. The service co. American Service Co. had postponed the SS four times before I finally closed.

Wow! Really? I hope that was a deal that was worth it and I’m sure it paid off nicely. That seems like a very long time!
