I am not familiar with the term short 'refinance'. However there is a similar term-- 'short sale' with which I am familiar.
A short sale occurs when the buyer purchases for less $$ than the current owner owes on the property. Such a sale requires that not only the current owner, but also the mortgaging entity, agrees to the price and terms as someone (often the bank/mortgage company) is coming up 'short'.
In my experience such sales take a good deal of knowledge of the process and more than a little patience as banks are not anxious to give away their money. A purchaser wants to be very sure that they are indeed getting clear title with all liens removed.
Experience does count her as in many situations.
Hope that helps.

A short refinance is similiar to a short sale, but allows the homeowner to refinance into a fixed rate loan with a lower principle balance. We negotiate with your current lender so they will forgive some of their note balance to make this possible; similar to a short sale. Go to http://www.rcsShortsales.com to learn more about a short refinance.
