There is a rumor floating around in the Useful Information about York PA area that "FHA, VA finacing is not acceptable for shortsales". This is the furthest from the truth. The Lender who makes the decision regarding the shortsale approval's want to see a Home Financing pre-approval and then the mortgage commitment prior to the settlement. As long as the Buyer finds a lender who will provide the financing for the shortsale they could care less what financing ultimately helps pay for the property. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise!
