You know this is a difficult situation, it is your home and it is furnished correct, would you rent it furnished or vacant, with a low mortgage outstanding and depending how long you intend to stay in Singapore,
you have to decide depending on those facts. Would you be back in a year, then may be you want to rent
and have a home once your return, if you think you will be in Singapore several years, may be selling
is better.
And then there is rent now decide later, however make sure you do connect with a good experienced
Realtor near your home, discuss your situation, have the Realtor look at your home, determine its
true current value for sale, and what you could potentially lease it for, but remember you may not find
a good renter right away, and if the renter signs a one year lease, after a year they may not want to
stay and move on and your home could be vacant for a while until you find another renter. It just all
depends on the home's location, and your actual plans and the financial side of both. Make sure to
sit together with a good Realtor and discuss all your options and then decide and use this Realtor to
proceed.... with your plans.

For any legal advice you should consult an attorney, but if the house is not sold in a sheriff sale the bank or lending company usually hands it off to a realtor to get the home sold,

Also, have you spoken to a real estate attorney? There are other options such as foreclosure which may be better for you. Talk to somebody with legal credentials to advise you.

If you just want to get out from under it, a short sale is a great idea. Working with more than one bank certainly complicates things, but not impossible. I have negotiated on 2 mortgages several time for sellers to a successful closing ... more

Well I guess my question to you would be, are you planning on staying at the house? In most divorce settlements the person staying at the resident after a divorce will have one year to either sell the house or refinance it. That is if either one of you want to stay on at the residence. I would like to do the comps on the house to see what the current value is. You may be better to sell it out right with a small gain or loss without affecting your good credit. If the loss is too much to afford then you may consider a Deed in lieu or short sale. I would first try marketing the property. Even in a short sale the banks are going to want to see an effort or property history of the listing. I have done several short sales where the lenders will want at least a 30 to 60 day listing history before considering a short sale. Just remember that the short sale will effect your credit. ... more

Actually Adrienne is off on this one... You see your mortgage is a major part of your credit score... it effects your score both for the good and/or the bad depending on what you do. If you miss payments it hurts you more than missing a credit card. If you have the mortgage your score will be higher then without. A homeowner is less risky than a renter and that is the only way the credit companies know you are an owner is if you have a mortgage... I can not tell you how much it will impact as it will depend on how long you have had credit, how many other trade lines you have, etc...

With that said, paying off your mortgage is a great thing. Congratulations!

When the short sale is negotiated you should make sure that she is excluded and not harmed. Who is conducting this short sale?

You need a WRITTEN agreement as to how the parties are hit with the results.
Everything is negotiable.
