A short sale is a negotiated settlement whereby the lien holder accepts less than what is owed on the outstanding mortgage loan.

How a short sale works? - A real estate agent would list the home and submit an accepted offer to the lender for approval. The real estate agent works on behalf of the seller to reach a negotiated settlement.  Once the terms of the settlement have been agreed upon with an approval both buyer and seller would resolve to complete the escrow process and close the transaction.

How long does it take to complete a short sale? Due to the complexities of doing a short sale the process can typically take anywhere from 3-6 months. It's not uncommon for some short sales to take less or more time to close.

Can I stay in my home while I"m doing a short sale?  Yes you can.

Can any lender opt to do a short sale? Yes. This includes the popular lenders like Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Chase, GMAC, USAA, and Navy Federal Credit Union.

Will I receive money from doing a short sale?  A seller is not allowed to financially benefit from completing a short sale. However, the lender can offer what's known as "cash for keys" which is a small compensation to the homeowner for moving costs.
