A real estate short sale is the sale of real estate in which the proceeds from selling the property fall short of the balance of debts secured by liens against the property and the property owner cannot afford to repay the full amount of the liens.

For homeowners wishing to short sell their property, the process can be overwhelming. It is important that you work with professionals who understand the short sale process.
