Sellers who stop making mortgage payments -- and those headed into default who cannot refinance or work out financing alternatives with their lender -- have 3 options for sale: sell the home before foreclosure is final, give a deed-in-lieu of foreclosure to the bank or let the bank take the property in foreclosure. 

Buyers and investors who want to buy short sales often try to negotiate with the bank on short sales before the home foreclosure is complete, especially if the home is worth less than its mortgage balance.

The fundamentals behind a short sale, why lenders accept short sale purchase offers, tax consequences to short sale sellers and benefits to sellers and buyers to negotiate short sales change often. How short sales affect seller's credit vs foreclosure varies as well.
