Short Sale question - another.

For those of you who have been through the process. When you have an offer written up and it goes to the bank, is there a process where they try and negotiate with you since they know your interested in the property, like you would do with a "regular sale" home. Or, do they flat out send it back as a REJECT!

RE: Short Sale question - another.

Just like any seller, the bank has three options:
1. Accept
2. Counter offer
3. Reject

I have seen them do all of the above. I almost always advise my sellers to never reject an offer. A lot of buyers will lowball the first offer, just to test the waters. I have seen these same buyers come up substantially after that, and come to a deal with the sellers.

Are you speaking of someone in a short sale situation?
