Shortsaled, I know it has been a while since you asked this question, however, I am hoping your Realtor has fought for you and was able to aggressively present your case to the bank, the buyer or kept advertising your home.
I don't know your situation however, be mindful of the following:
1. Make sure a Short Sale Contingency was included in the Contract package.
2. Your Realtor can add verbiage that states you are forgiven the entire balance of the loan.
3. When submitting the offer to the lender your Realtor can add a letter & current supporting docs reminding the lender of your current financial information (meaning you currently have no funds to contribute to closing).
Please do not feel your dignity has been stripped. Having to have personally gone through a short sale due to divorce I have been where you are. Continue to persevere, be persistent and clear on where you are with the lender and your realtor. Make sure your Realtor is fighting for you and you are fighting for yourself - you all are team, communicate and market your home as one.
I hope the best for you and remember this is temporary.
