In filing out the number of sales in last 12 months and number of listings, I cannot reconcile the dilema with regard to short sales. As the listing will state, the price is subject to the lender's approval, so how can I as an appraiser have any certainty that the lender will ultimately approve the offer. Some do; many do not. I tend to not consider lowball short listings as "market" listings. Any help or other opinions? Thanks.
