The following chart depicts the homes reported sold by category for the past six months in MLS.  Note, the percentage of short sales homes that actually closed is much lower than the %  under contract.  Why?  Lenders of sellers can reject the short sale completely because the sellers don't qualify, they may not accept the purchase price and terms of contract offered by the buyers,or the buyers may get tired of waiting for a response for the seller's lender(s), etc.
