Foreclosures (I think) can take a few weeks for the bank to reply. My friends are trying to buy a foreclosure & the banks are taking their time. I think it took just over a week to hear back that they accepted their offer & the realtor was suprised they replied “that fast”. However, there are banks that reply much sooner. I put in an offer on a short-sale house that was owned by 2 banks (so it should have taken weeks, if not months) to hear back & I heard back in just a few days. The banks were very responsive but the house ended up not working out (the heat source was questionable). It all just depends on the bank. I hope you hear back soon!!

Good luck!  I hope it all works out! 🙂  We haven’t bought a home together yet, so I’m a newbie to it.

We’re in the same boat. We put an offer on the house in early Feb, we’re not expecting to hear for a while. They had 2 mortgages so it should take a little longer for us. We put in the contract that we want to hear by mid May or we will just walk b/c I’ll be 7 months pregnant then, and we don’t want to deal with buying a house as I’m going into labor. I’m trying not to worry about it too much, I figure if we don’t get the house it just wasn’t meant to be.
