Should I short sale my house or wait for it to be auctioned?

This depends on your ultimate goal. A short sale is less detrimental to you credit, but will still likely keep you from buying another home for 2-3 years. Often times short sales become foreclosures because the homeowner stopped paying the mortgage loan payments and the short sale took too long. A foreclosure hits your credit harder, but may allow you to stay in the home for just as long or in some cases longer. Additionally, you can negotiate a "cash-for-keys" deal with the lender or new owner where you leave the property in good condition on a specified date in exchange for money for relocating costs.


How can you sell your house in a short sale and still file bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy is simply having debt beyond what you can pay. A short sale would have nothing to do with it. When you sell short, you leave the deal with nothing. No profit, no cash from the sale. Also, a lender would not even approve the short sale unless they are satisfied that you are 'upside down' each month and have no savings or other assets with which to pay the mortgage.


Can you get a short sale all the time?

A short sale is most often using when a homeowner is facing foreclosure. If the amount offered by a potential buyer of your house is less than the amount you owe your lender, you can ask the lender to accept the offered amount as payment in full. The lender does not have to agree to accept a short sale. They may elect to go ahead with a foreclosure because of other liens on the property (such as 2nd mortgages.) You can request a short sale by submitting a short sale hardship letter to your lender.
