Dec. 18, 2012 - PRLog -- Using short sales to avoid home foreclosure has become popular, especially in California. Here is a short description by Mary Gallagher, written in e-How (Money section).

When the mortgage balance is greater than its value, the owner can’t pay the difference and the lender agrees to accept less than what is owned, it is called a short sale. Commonly mortgages and homes in this situation are said to be "underwater" or "upside down." Short sales are an alternative to foreclosure as well as to hunkering down and waiting the recession out. They have become commonplace in California.

Both the federal tax change of 2007 eliminating tax on the unpaid difference and the 2009 Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternative Program (HAFTA) which gave incentives for short sales has helped with the stalemate of unpaid mortgages, especially in California where there are so many of these sales now.

The downside of short sales is that they often take longer than regular sales as the borrower must pass certain criteria (“hardship” approvals) and submit a number of forms. It is not uncommon for the buyer to get tired of waiting and walk out of the deal.
