It's like putting money in the stock market. You do so hoping that when you withdraw/sell, you've made some money.
- Like Robert C said, you get to deduct your interest and property taxes off your taxes! That's a bonus!

Check with a VA Lender. I know you would qualify for FHA, as long as you were current on the previous short sale. Conventional lenders will not lend if a recent Short Sale is found by the underwriter on your credit report. ... more

Be sure your agent (Buyers agent) stays on top of the Listing agent. The Listing agent needs to be sure the BPO or Appraisal gets done done ASAP. If there is a disparity between your offer and the BPO/Appraisal, you may need to re-think your offer and/or respond to a counter offer. Be sure the Listing agent has given the SSA (Short Sale Addendum) to your agent for you to sign. among ohter things, it discloses your time frames for the offer. Make sure ALL MONIES go through escrow and are included on the HUD.

Have your agent ask the Listing agent if the seller is submitting one offer (yours) or is waiting, and submitting multiple offers to the Bank SS negotiator. Most banks only want to see one offer, but it is not always the highest offer. Many times Banks will accept and lower, ALL CASH offer with a shorter escrow because there is less that could go wrong.
