Foreclosure Vs. Short Sale?

What to Do?

In foreclosure vs short sale, who wins? In all honesty, the answer is no one. However, one alternative is less emotionally and financially painful than the other. If you're faced with being unable to pay for your Branson real estate or Table Rock Lake real estate, first realize that you're not alone. Job loss, mounting medical bills and shaky investments are only a few factors that figure into the mortgage crisis many Americans are facing. The reason why doesn't matter as much as finding a solution to the problem. So let's examine foreclosure vs short sale so you can consider which alternative might be best for you.

What to Expect: Foreclosure vs Short Sale

A foreclosure is shown as a nonpayment and often stays on your credit report for minimum of seven years. During this time, it can difficult to find employment, qualify for new housing or even hold you back from raises in your current employment position. With a short sale, although it does go on your credit report, it doesn't stay there as long (2-3 years on average). Plus, since the loan has been repaid, even at a lower amount, there's more leniency when it comes to dealing with individuals like landlords and employers. Many times people feel the only option they have is to walk away from their Branson real estate. However, you may be in a situation where a short sale is possible and that's where an experienced short sale Realtor can help you most.
