As many of you have read in the local paper and seen on the news, there is a 'short short and bank owned' real estate phenomenium across the country. The City of Danbury is not immune from this national problem, but the problem is the area is not as far fledged as others in the country.

The seller put together papers for the bank and were filled out appropriately for the bank to approve it. For the bank to have approved the short sale, they would have the seller sell the house for less than what you owe on the mortgage. The seller would then turn over the proceeds of the sale to the bank in ful...
