Short Sales are not for the average or new agent. They are really a specialty that few have mastered, but many have tried. I belong to a site that focuses on them and would be worth checking out.
Whoever you select, from whatever source, please use one with a track record of CLOSING short sales, not just listing them. No one bats 1.000, but if they don't close the vast majority of what they list, keep looking.
Check out the link below.

Rodney Mason answered:
You did not include exact dates of your history, but I would doubt that your income could be used. It sounds like you were out of work for a considerable amount of time. All loan programs today require a verified continuous 24 month employment history in the same line of work, but not necessarily with the same employer. There are only a very few of exceptions to that rule. Those exceptions are as follows:

1. If you are a recent college graduate, you can use your time spent in college to make up part up the 24 month history. A copy of your college transcripts and your college diploma will be required.
2. If, within the last 24 months, you have had a 6+ month gap in employment, then you must be employed at least 6 months since that gap ended.
3. For someone with a longer break in history, the same 6 month rule is followed, but a full 24 month employment history from previous employers must be verified.

For someone who is salaried or hourly, you generally must be employed at least 30 days with the current or new employer. This is due to the fact that a pay stub reflecting at least 30 days of YTD income is going to be required prior to closing.

If you are paid by anything other than a W-2 (i.e. a 1099, self-employed, etc), then you must have 24 months of receipt of that type of income. Some exceptions are possible if your current employer switched your compensation from W-2 to 1099 or commission.

Closing on a mortgage prior to starting a new job with a new company is only considered on a case by case basis for certain fields. Generally, a non-revocable employer agreement confirming your new salary, position, and start date will be required.

If you are looking to purchase a property, working with a knowledgeable and seasoned loan officer is critical in today's market. Getting Pre-Qualified is the only way for you to find out your mortgage options. To get Pre-Qualified for your purchase, you can submit your request online at to get started.

Appraisal By Michael answered:
I would also recommend you get an appraisal done on the home you are interested in. Many first time buyers make the mistake of buying a home without knowing the value. If the seller hasn't done an appraisal, I would simply ask them if they mind. If they decline, then there is something fishy. What would be the benefit of you paying to get an appraisal on the home you set your heart on? Answer: You'll be able to negotiate price a lot easier because you know the true value. Most sellers who don't get an appraisal done pick a price based on their emotion/reasoning. However, if you choose to get an appraisal done (if one isn't done already) do your homework on the appraiser. You want someone with experience, someone who can provide the most accurate information. If you have any other questions, send a message with your contact information or simply contact me. I do cover your area.

Good luck with your first home!
