Hi - I am not in your area otherwise I would call to help you. Start your search for a Realtor that is SFR Certified (short sale and foreclosure resource) Not tat tis is the cure al, but at least Realtors with this designation have an idea of the process and how to go about helping you move forward.
A lot of Realtors will tell you they know what to do, just to get your listing and then and it off to an attorney to process.. could be a mistake.
Feel free to email or call me with any questions. I have a detailed background in shorts ales and maybe I can help. I will also look for a Realtor in your area to help you out.
