If you can provide proof of steady income, have approximately 35% to put down, and the short sale is the only negative item in your credit, yes, you have a chance of purchasing. However, you need to be realistic, and realize it is not going to be the nicest property everybody wants, we are in a multiple-offer situation for the nice ones but there are a lot of diamonds in the rough out there. If you have the creativity to see the potential and the realistic approach to securing a property in this market, I would be glad to help you.
