Can I do a short sale if I have a second mortgage or home equity loan?

Yes, you can do a short sale where the owner has a lot of assets or a lot of cash. The issue becomes what is available to satisfy any deficiency that may be there.

If there’s for example, $150,000 deficiency, you may be asked to contribute $5,000, $6,000 to that deficiency.
