How Will My Credit Be Affected?

As stated above, a foreclosure appears on your credit report for seven years. A short sale will also appear on your credit report. So, which one of these is the better option? They both act adversely in relation to your overall credit score, making it more difficult to secure credit in the future. Lenders interpret this as a signal that you did not pay the full amount that was owed to your creditors. Still, a short sale that settles your debt in full makes lenders aware of the fact that you put the effort in to pay your mortgage off.

Our goal is to keep you in your home; however, if the worse happens and you’re forced to sell or leave your home we can assist you. Contact our real estate experts to determine the best course of action in stabilizing, then rebuilding your credit score and bank accounts.
