buying a short sale


I don't know of a set formula for figuring out what a bank will accept. So many factors apply... how far behind the owner is on payments, how many bills & fees have been racked up, how fast or well real estate is moving in the subject area, they'll also take into consideration if you're paying cash, the amount of your down payment and the solidity of your financing. Definitely suggest using the skills of a qualified Realtor to help navigate the short sale system!
