Short Sale Benefits
Unless you agree you will no longer owe your lender once the sale is complete. Your credit will be slightly damaged, but you’ll be eligible to purchase another home in as little as 2-3 years. Your credit will not be tainted with foreclosure, preventing you from employment and tarnish your credit with landlords and lenders.
Short Sale Vs. Foreclosure
A foreclosure will remain on your credit for 7 years or more. After you complete a short sale only late payments to your lender will show on your credit. Once your home is sold short your mortgage is typically reported as “paid as agreed” or “settled.” Furthermore, during your future job search, employers may require credit checks during the application process. A foreclosure reported on your credit is a detrimental credit item while seeking employment. If your home is sold via short sale it will not be reported to your credit as such. This will not pose as a challenge during your future job search.
