Las Vegas Short Sale Time Frame

By Kathryn Bovard

One of the most often asked question that I get asked from Las Vegas homeowners who are thinking of short selling their home is “How long does it take?”

There are many variables such as condition of the home, pricing and location but once the seller has accepted an offer and that offer has been submitted to the bank for approval, the short sale time frame really depends on two things for the banks response time. Is it a delegated or non-delegated loan?

What this means is if it is a delegated file/loan the the bank has the ability to make a decision on the investor’s behalf without sending the investor a complete package for review. If it is a non-delegated file/loan then the bank cannot make the decision without a complete document review by the investor. The investor makes the decision in a non-delegated arrangement.

So basically the time frame for a short sale usually falls within the following:


Delegated loans:                                                      5 weeks

Non-delegated loans                                            12 weeks

Valuation stage                                                       1-3 weeks

Held stage or negotiations                                   4 weeks


Approval for delegated                                          2 weeks

Approval for Non-delegated                                4 weeks

Your Realtor or short sale negotiator will be able to determine from the bank asset manager what type of loan you have once a file has been opened.
