Short Sale vs. Foreclosure

Why choose to do a short sale

Short Sale

  • Most often a negotiated settlement
  • Credit can be repaired in half the time
  • Can be eligible to buy another home much sooner
  • Low Attorney fees (in some cases, none)
  • Peace of mind after closing
  • Many times can buy another home within 24 months
  • Often includes all liens in sale



  • Courts may dictate settlement
  • Credit can be ruined for up to 7 years
  • Possibility of high Attorney fees
  • Uncertain about deficiency judgments
  • Can take up to 7-10 years to be able to buy again
  • In some states it runs the risk that other liens will try to sue you for the balance
