  Agents, when you call on a listing agent to ask. .How many loans on this short sale? The answer really does not reveal anything to help your buyer(s) make a decision. . There are hundreds if not thousands of (one loan) short sales that where not approved. .and there are thousands of (two loan) short sales that were approved. . Better questions you may want to ask? Have you already send a complete package to the lender PRIOR to putting the property in the market? HAFA Short Sale? . .then asking price is the already approved price?

Instead of the government helping the people that needs it the most. . the same lenders are pushing the Government to alleviate their losses with policies paid by helpful  lobbyists inside Washington DC
At the root of this crisis is that there’s a bailout going on FOR THE LENDERS and not the distressed homeowners!

A great article that asks the question most asked by confused homeowners. . the reduction of principal in order to keep a homeowner in a home.
In my opinion, selective principal reduction will not work because all homeowners would want the same thing. .and the banking system would collapse because of it.
As simple as this approach would be, this is how I humbly present to you how to fix the housing crisis in the US right now . . . in just 30 days!

In the real world .  the rich and successful often making a decision about doing  a short sale naturally. They seem to be less susceptible to the shame and fear of accused by their peers, friends, neighbors.
The government and the mortgage banking industry has specially created a fear factor to keep underwater homeowners from acting in their financial best interest .
That is a shame because thousands of families are suffering needlessly consuming their savings and decimating their retirement security blankets.
The lenders called on the Government when they saw themselves in trouble. .
