A short sale occurs when the proceeds from a home sale fall short of what is owed on the property and the Seller's lender agrees to accept less than what the Seller owes. When the Buyer makes an offer on a potential short sale home, the Seller accepts the contract BUT...that contract is contingent on the Seller's lender agreeing in writing to accept from the Seller less than what is owed on the property.
That is the simple and quick answer, but I will be elaborating on the short sale process in future posts.

The list was put together by TopRetirements.com whose founder rated potential retirement cities based on weather, access to health care, property tax rates, adult education, cultural activities, and low housing costs.
And it is no surprise that a number of my clients in the past year have been retirees or those approaching retirement. Even if they are a few years away from retirement, a number of these "near-retirees" are locking up their eventual retirement homes now while Tucson home prices and interest rates are low.
