Are you serious?
When you submitted your short sale package your Realtor included a financial statement outlining your assets, right? So they already know, so it should not make any difference.
Of course, if you lied...well, maybe you don't deserve a short sale if you misrepresented your financials.
Let's see how others think. Sorry, but I am a buy the book type.
I had clients that had bought a house and then had to short sale their previous house because they could no longer afford to mortgages. My client made good money and had money in the bank. He did have to bring in some money to get the short sale approved put the small amount was worth it to him seeing as his house was $250K upside down.
