Please remember that to get a deal you must give something; nothing is for free. You will either give it in sweat equity because it needs work or you will give it in time because a short sale can take months to complete depending on the bank and how far along they are in the process. Banks are typically not in the real estate business so many times a short sale will sit on a desk until someone gets time from their normal jobs to process these. They need to have a BPO (Broker Price Opinion) completed, various documents from the seller/owner demonstrating financial hardship and a final proceeds from the Title Company recorded. Typically if you see a deal, so do other people so expect competing offers. Go in strong and as clean as possible so that they choose you to work with; use a Fishers real estate agent that knows what they doing.
Please be sure to have the home inspected so that you know what condition the home truly is in.
