I have had Fannie Mae approve my short sales without my clients missing payments. It is possible.

Hi Ji,

There is a possibility. However, it really depends on the details of your specific situation, etc.

However, I suggest that you have a full consultation with an attorney, tax professional, & Realtor that specializes in short sales. It is very important that you know your options.

In the meantime, feel free to visit and select "Short Sales" on the left hand side. There you will find frequently asked questions about short sales.

If you would like to set up a no obligation consultation to get answers to your specific questions, we'd be happy to schedule your appointment.

We wish you the best.

It's always a "Case-by-Case" basis; it will depend on your Hardship (necessary for ANY Short Sale), assets, payment history and several other factors. Your best bet is to meet with a qualified Realtor, go through the Short Sale Package preparation requirements and see what happens!

It may be possible. There are a whole list of questions that come with your question. The first issue, right off the bat is what is your "hardship"? Without that, you can't even get started.

If you like, I can have my team evaluate your situation at no cost to you. This is a specialized team of bankers and attorneys that will negotiate with the bank on your behalf. Again, this costs you nothing as they get paid by the bank. I would be happy to discuss this with you further if you are interested.
