I think its good advise to speak to the lender. I agree they won't want another short sale!
Feel free to call if you have any questions! I can possibly provide some other suggestions.!
I have a client that wants to purchase there in the next few months.
Maybe they could rent until they own! They would be an awesome client and they prefer not to deal with a short sale. If you could contact me we could discuss it.
The best advice I can give is to talk with the bank. Most certainly they will understand, and under the current circumstances they do not want another short sale or foreclosure in their hands.
Give them a call, bring the documentation and you should be fine, especially so close to the 1 yr anniversary.
