Best to work with an agent trained in short sales. There is a lot of time, phone calls and proper paperwork involved in making a short sale happen. Listings are not supposed to show short sale info in the public remarks section. An agent can acquire this information. Be prepared for a potential lengthy process as well. It is very important to have all the ducks in a row when presenting the offer. Otherwise, any missing paperwork delays the process even further, some instances back to square one. Hope this helps.
