Which should come first in a short sale? Putting the house on the market and and getting a buyer OR contacting the bank first about the list price?

Work on ALL of them simultaneously - you can always change your list price if the bank gives you a different value.

Depend of the Bank i am a priority broker with Chase bank , they sent me a lot of Shortsale ...and those owners they are current in their payments they want to do a shortsale and keep paying their mortgage ...in those cases they have an authorization from Chase

Depende ! en varios casos , los shortsale venta corta son iniciados por los bancos y cuando el propietario no lleva pagos retrasados , al menos en el caso de Chase

Either or. I think its best to get the whole packet ready to submit to the bank with the offer. Try ordering the BPO while its first getting listed.

It's being done both ways.

Ask your Realtor. However, it's a lot cleaner if it's a pre-approved short sale. Some lenders will do that; others won't.

Hope that helps.
