REALTOR'S have had tremendous successes in working with many lenders in accepting short sale transactions for the betterment of the sellers, buyers, lenders and the Realtor's, too.  A WIN, WIN, WIN, WIN SITUATION FOR EVERYONE.  TAKE HEART, I SAY...GET ON BOARD...SPREAD THE WORD...LET'S GET 'EM DONE AND GET BACK TO THE BUSINESS OF WORKING WITH BUYER'S AND SELLER'S...WITH THE ONLY LENDER INVOLVEMENT FOR A 'NEW' LOAN!!!  WHOO HOO!

Short Sales are a great way to buy and invest.  People need to understand it can be lenghty and patience is needed.  Great post!

What a great response...you are a true trooper!  I've been around this world of real estate for 34 years and am in high hopes of hanging around for a good 20 more!  What a challenge.  What a mystery.  What a great business...I'm in it for the long haul!  Good luck to you and, yes...the sun will shine again!  Robin

Short sales are great but patience is really needed for the buyer.

Short sales have taken several turns since I originally wrote the post above.  However, the message is the same.  Now, with the banks under the microscope with regards to their foreclosure practices...short sales are becoming more in favor and should have a new light!  We all agree that patience is the key word and disclosure to the buyer...and seller...as to the process in general.  It's all good!  Thanks for the comments...we're all in it together at this point!
