This isn’t three years ago, when short sales were new to everyone. Lenders have had plenty of time to get their ducks in a row and deal with borrower requests.

“We trust you’ll agree that change in your short-sale process is critical,” said CAR president Beth Peerce. And anyone who’s married will tell you that “We trust you’ll agree” is one of those phrases you really, really don’t want to ignore.
