We recently retired and have enough cash to buy a home in another state. Should we short sale or foreclose, we could use all the cash we can save?

I would really suggest that you consult with an attorney, Short Sale Realtor, and tax advisor. It is extremely important that you consider all your options.

You can do a regular sale if you have remaining equity. You'll be able to preserve your credit in case you still need it. If you try to short sale, you'll likely get declined with your currently cash position. And, you can't foreclose on your home, which can only be done by your lender.
