Success with short sales is NOT dictated by the area where the house is located.

There are other factors that determine short sale success.
Here are a few of them:

1) Lender - is the lender willing to approve the short sale?
2) Number of trusts involved - two loans is harder than one
3) Seller must be able to prove a genuine HARDSHIP - being merely unhappy with the current market does NOT qualify the seller for a short sale
4) Willingness of the Seller to cooperate - providing documents in a timely manner
5) Keeping the house buyer ready all the time, as in a traditional sale, in order to bring the best possible offer
6) Finally, the listing agent's comfort level with the short sales

I am a REALTOR with three short sale designations: SFR, CDPE, and CHRE. I would be happy to meet with you to discuss short sales in more details and your chances of being approved.
Short sale affects your credit scores for 18-24 months, while foreclosure affects those scores for 5-7 years.
If you can, give a short sale a chance - unless, you can work out something with your lender an modify your loan.

I have been negotiating short sales sicne 2005, we have helped several hudnred homeowners all over the country.
I am based in Gainesville, VA (wife and I bought our first home in Kinsgbrooke).
I wrote a book on short sale negotiations you can find on Amazon:
"Are You More Likely To See Bigfoot Or A Short Sale Approval Letter?"
and still negotiate short sales for agents.
If you have ANY questions on ANY short sale, chances are we have come across it and can get you answers.
Let me know if you need ANY help....BBenita@Comcast.net
