Starting June 15, the Short-Sale Process should officially start to speed up. That is the date that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac new guidelines go into effect:  they are required to approve (or not) a Short Sale within 60 days from receipt of an Offer.  Large banks will be required to respond to a Short Sale Offer within 30 days of receipt. 
You can read the full article here:

Here in the Greater Orlando area, Short Sales made up 29% of our overall sales last month, while 25% were REOs (Bank-Owned).  Bottom line: bank involvement in sales contribute to 54% of our Sold homes.  As banks prefer Short Sales (their costs greatly escalate to take a home into foreclosure), we can expect to see the Short Sale to REO ratio rise in the future.
