I am new to this forum, but very happy I found it. I would like to know in depth steps to start a short sale. I have already done two medications, and I still cannot afford to keep this house. The house was rented out through a property management company, the tenants are moving out this month. The house was never intended to be rented out, but I got a new job in another state so I had no choice. I just need to know how I can start the short sale process. I am one month behind now. I have a real estate agent that deals with short sales, so I think we could get this house sold. Please help me with the steps for this process. Should I send a letter first or do I call them and request a short sale? Im so lost! Im getting pretty DESPERATE, please help!
