Talk with a few Realtors and make sure the one you are dealing with has had success with short sales. You will be up against the same issues. The lender may want to set a price based on their own appraisal or they may instruct you to list the home and submit an offer when received.
Because your situation has dragged on for so long you may be up for foreclosure very soon so make sure you keep communication open with the lender at all times. Call them at least once a week.
Best of luck to you and your family.

Very very very few people get loan modifications....again unfortunately.
We can try to short sale. That's the next best option....even then sometimes they'll give you trouble.
However we're hoping a short sale is a whole lot better on your credit record for the future instead of a foreclosure. Do everything you can to avoid foreclosure.
We would like to look at your home this week if possible.
If you think the loan mod was frustrating, wait till they start playing the short-sale game with you. Unfortunately, your options are likely very limited.
Please see my blog with tips and advice on selling a home through a short sale
I am a realtor in your area (west side of Ft Worth). I have experience with short sales and this might be an option for you. If you would like to give me a call to discuss this please feel free to do so.
