 SHORT SALESFor many homeowners who purchased or refinanced their properties in recent years (2004-2006) & now must sell, the present home selling market is difficult at best.  If you obtained a 90%-100% loan, it's likely that this home purchase or refinance is now "upside down", i.e. the net sal...
