Foreclosure in 11778>Question Details

Pandjsmom77, Both Buyer and Seller in 11778

I have a 420,000 mortgage on a home worth about 280,000. My husband and I found another home we like and the owner is willing to hold the mortgage.

Asked by Pandjsmom77, 11778 Mon Jul 25, 2011

What will this do to our credit if we forclose on our current home. We are not behind on payments and do not want to foreclose but it seems like the only thing to do. If we sell it we will still owe too much money on it.

Hi there! A good rule of thumb is that a short sale is NOT for those who WANT to sell, but only for those that HAVE to sell. If you are not in a financial hardship, you likely will not qualify. If you can no longer afford the payment, then you likely WILL quality. Be careful trusting your financial future to an agent claiming to be an "expert" after taking a weekend training class! We've literally closed hundred in the area. Let us know if you have any questions about the process. You'll also find my main sites the #1 resource for short sale information on the web -

Hold off on buying anything until you resolve a short sale with the bank holding the mortgage on the home that you own. Also, make sure that you choose an attorney that knows how to handle a short sale as well as a real estate agent that has been certified to do so. If you purchase another home, even if the owner holds the mortgage, you can risk the chance of getting the first debt forgiven. I am a certified short sale and foreclosure specialist and I am currently working with bank negotiators. I also lived in Rocky Point for many years. My office is in Wading River and I would be glad to guide you. Best of luck!

You do know that with loses like the one you are about to hand to the bank that they will come after you for the difference and they will go after the other house if they have to to get the difference! So if you walk they will haunt you!

I don't know all of the particulars, but based on what you've written, you seem eligible for a short sale on your home.. Feel free to call me to discuss.. I am with a local realtor who lists/sells quite a bit in Rocky Point.
