Depending on the 'bank' involved, the foreclosure process and short sale can run parrellel paths with the clock running on both. This is important becuase if the loan has been in defalult for YEARS the foreclosure has been running for a much longer time than the short sale clock.

You should turn your question to the negotiator and discuss their expereince with the lender, servicer and even investor group(s) involved. In some cases the foreclosure clock will be suspended until the short sale crashes and burns. This is usally accomplished by the lender responded with a counter offer at market value. The buyer, hoping for a deep discount, becomes discouraged and exits the deal, and the crash predictably occurs.

The answer to your question is, 'Hang in there, this game is not over yet.! Be agile and flexible and understand you do not have a good faith partner on the other side."

kim they look at credit score, income, expenses, length on job, amount of savings. Your best bet instead of guessing or worrying is to meet with a local and trusted mortgage broker, they can prequailify you at no cost, they will look at your credit plus your financials and let you know if there are any programs that you may quailify for.
