can I rent a house to keep owner from doing a short sale on 2nd home?


I found a little house in Idaho that is about to go up for sale with a short sale. I have bad credit but steady income. The house is up for 40 thousand. Can I attempt to rent it from the owners to try and keep them from short selling it?
