A bank will approve a short sale only if they think they will net more money taking the short sale offer. To make sure they aren't selling the house for too little, they order an appraisal.

The problem is that most homes are selling for less than appraisal. In one example, a non short sale listing sold for 225k. However, the property could have appraised for 300k.
That means the short sale lender would never have approved it. This is why your agent needs to make sure the appraisal is accurate. There is nothing unethical or illegal about doing this. Let me explain why.
80% of the loans handled by big mortgage companies are actually owned by an investor. These front companies (such as Wells Fargo, Bank of America, SunTrust, or Chase) are acting as a "servicer."
The servicers save money by taking 60-90 days to consider a short sale offer, turning down files over one missing doc, and cutting staff. This is why short sale offers get turned down for no reason.
However, if they can see that the house is valued at 145k and you're selling it for 140k, they'll accept the offer. Again, which is why your agent needs to make sure the appraisal is accurate.
