When you cannot make up worse stuff about an FHA short sale, then you just stick to the facts. Which is what I have done in my blog today. In the rare occassions when I have had to break bad news to a seller, I call the seller and speak on the phone. I would never send an email or text with bad news because that's like slapping somebody in the face when they are down. People need to discuss, dissect and understand what happens so they can move forward through the grieving process and get past the anger when things do not go according to plan.
That's the problem with being on the other side of the transaction with the sellers. You can't control the buying side. You can't make the buyers see reason and logic, and you certainly are not privy to their thought processes.
