It can be extremely frustrating.. as frustrating as it was /is for you.. just think of the sellers.. now , because of the banks incompetence to come up with a simple yes or no they will now be foreclosed on..

And thebank.. well they'll never get the same money they could havegotten from a short sale..

idiots (the banks, not yuo)

banks are just plain stupid. They wait and wait...patience runs dry and potential buyers WALK AWAY and the house ends up getting foreclosed on. And these people went to college and got degrees in finance and MBA's ?? WOW
