If a builder is willing to rent a luxury home he built but unable to sell, is it worth it to ask if he will owner finance?

Does anyone have any suggestions of short sale LENDERS?
I don't understand your question. If you're doing a short sale, you have to work with your lender. You don't have a choice of lenders.
