    Welcome to the forum and thank you for joining.............

    First you would need to understand the foreclosure process in IL in regards to deficiency judgements;

    The foreclosure itself can take anywhere from 8 months to upwards of a year more or less;

    Who is the lender? A DIL would be difficult to obtain if there are more than one lien on the property. Do you have a first and second lien? Also you would have to begin with getting an approval to do a short sale through the lender first by submitting a full financial package and showing a hardship. The property being underwater would not be considered a hardship unfortunately.

    Since your loan is a Fannie Mae loan, you may be eligible for their Mortgage Release program. If eligible, the process should be fairly quick since there is only one loan.

    Here is the information;

"Hello Moe, I just wanted to tell you, your website has saved my life (literally), I stumbled on your site in the middle of losing my home, I was able to network with people going through the same thing as I am. I didn't feel alone anymore, I have tried to give back and counsel those that haven't walked in my shoes yet. We hear so much about what is wrong with America, I just wanted you to know, you are whats "right" with America."
