BidaBing Auctions are the best way to start your Short Sale negotiation with your bank.
Step One: List your property with a BidaBing agent.
Step Two: Have your agent conduct a BidaBing auction.
Step Three: Contact your bank and forward the BidaBing auction certificate along with the executed contract for the purchase of your property.
This shows the bank that a true effort was made and an arms length deal was achieved. They will be more likely to approve that short sale.
