Most people consider relocation to take place more faster than it actually does. However, that will depend on if the person being relocated is being backed by a Human Relations Department. Also, it will depend on the "corporate benefits" and their position with the company.
If the person being relocated is a top level executive - they are not concerned with the price of the home they are buying. It typically is part of the agreement and any difference in amount owed - amount worth - etc, is picked up by the "corporation".
But, if you are not in that League. No worries - most are not :) Typically, any other person or persons relocating are going to want to rent for a bit. May I suggest to sign a 6 month rental then to start looking for properties being sold short? click here to see the local real estate rental inventory
Depending on the bank or banks - will depend on the closing time frame. We have become pretty good at the "estimate" of approval with most of the major banks. We pass this along to our clients in the form of intel. They "get it" when we do our recon about how many payments have been missed to day, has a notice of default been filed, are the owners making other arrangements for a place to stay, and who is the second lien holder - if any???
