What can you do?
One possibility is to make offers on more than one short sale. I get asked all the time if that's legal. It is. You have to have an agent who's available close to 24/7, and you have to agree to buy the first one that accepts your offer. The agent has to be available so that s/he can cancel the "other" offer so you don't buy two homes. That's about it.
Making multiple offers doesn't shorten the time, but it may avoid getting stuck with a really long lender response time.
The HOA is $270/mo as Pacita mentioned. Though this one is pending there are others available in that area. This is a competitive price range and the inventory moves quickly so I would suggest working with an agent if you're not already. That way you can be sure to find properties as or before they come on the market.

They have an offer accepted by the seller after just over two week on the market, and this has been pending (subject to short sale approval) since Nov 2009.
Hope this helps.
