From time to time, yes. Most people hear the term "short sale" and automatically think of a seller that is in financial trouble and needs to sell their house fast to prevent further financial problems. This is at times the case and can be an opportunity for a buyer to cash in on another's misfortune. In contrast, a lender may consider a short sale even if the seller is current with their mortgage, but property values have depreciated. In cases such as these the "bargain" price may in fact be closer to current market values, not below.
