Lenders are taking a tougher approach to short sales. A lot depends on the seller's situation. If the mortgage is not just purchase money, but perhaps includes a cash out refi, then it is possible that they view that as a situation where they are going to ask for a promissory note. Better that, than a foreclosure. ... more
