When Does A Short Sale Become Necessary?

When house prices are falling, many properties cannot be sold at a price that allows the seller to pay off the mortgage in full. Under these circumstances, short sales become a popular option.

In a short sale, the lender agrees to accept the sale price, less your closing costs, as payment in full.
