What is a Short Sale?

A short sale is a a home sale where the home sale price is less than the amount owed on the balance of the home mortgage loan. Short Sale negotiations can be complicated. The bank or home lender has to agree to a discounted payoff amount on the loan.  They know the home value is less than the amount owed on the loan.
