They need guidance. They need to understand that they will be forced into foreclosure which is far worse than a short sale.

Please advice them.

Hi There,

I guess lenders aren't doing them, or you'd have had at least a few responses.

When there's risk to a potential creditor, in this case you can't prove you'll be able to make the loan payments, you'll need to lessen the risk to the lender somehow. For loans, it's usually in the form of higher interest rates. If your only source for a loan is private money, from a private lender/investor, you'll be paying a LOT more in interest, which will lessen the amount you can pay for your property.

My suggestion would be to work on getting employment that will be enough to qualify for the loan amount on the home you want. I know it's more difficult now, but you do have a nice amount of money for a down payment, and if you can add to that, you'll be able to buy in two years, the amount of time lenders want to see you employed. $70K is enough for a 20% down payment on a conventional loan for a $350K home. Your payment would be roughly $1725/mo, so that's the payment you'd have to qualify for. If you're buying a condo, you'd have to take the HOA fee into consideration, so your purchase price would be less. Or, could buy something for less anyway, and have a higher down payment, and that will lower your monthly payment, so your income could be less.

Good luck to you, and let me know if you have any more questions.

Warm Regards,

It is really best for you to pose your question to your tax advisor. It's outside the scope of expertise for a Realtor to answer.

Best of luck.

I think as an investment it does not make sense to lose money every month. There are some advantages to doing a short sale this year. i.e. the mortgage debt forgiveness act. check it out here:,-Now-Tax-Free-for-Many-Homeowners%3B-Claim-Relief-on-Newly-Revised-IRS-Form

Tim Zielonka answered:
Consult an attorney right away! A Realtor should never advise you to stop paying your mortgage. You're in a very dangerous situation. Walking away from the property and doing a foreclosure will severely damage your credit, and you may be left on the hook for the remaining balance of the loan after the bank resells the property after it has foreclosed.

The relocation may be enough to get you qualified for the short-sale. I'm also sorry to hear about your disastrous experience with your current Realtor.

Keep in mind that your credit will take a slight beating as a result of the short sale. However, it will not be nearly as bad as it would if you go through the foreclosure.

Many people have done this, but an article I read yesterday points out that this is considered mortgage fraud and they will be going after people who did this, and they're not only looking for money, they're looking to jail people who have done this. If you have a legitimate hardship and cannot afford the home, then a short sale would be a good option for you, but you won't be able to turn around and get a new mortgage right away.

888-995-HOPE (4673)

I just looked up HAFA and got that phone number from the above website. You are represented by a Realtor so it would be unethical of me or anyone else here to give you advice. If you believe your Realtor has been less than honest and not represented you as you believe she should have then you should try and speak to her, her office manager, or broker. HAFA seems to be something run by the Government so not sure your Realtor can do anything about it, I could be wrong though.
I wish you the best!

Aaron Sims answered:
There are worse scores, however these days one typically needs a 640 to qualify for a mortgage from most lenders. A few go as low at 620 for some programs, and very few, though I occasionally hear about it, will have a program that goes as low as 600. I’d recommend getting your credit up to 640, you’ll have better rates and an easier time qualifying for what would be the best mortgage option for you.
Best of Luck!

not necessarily... for example if you are insolvent you would not owe. You need to check with your tax person for help here. If you don't have one this may be a good year to hire someone. ... more

That does not sound normal, but might be lucky if that bad word "foreclosure" isn't there. Still suspect it will be very negative on your credit. Did you short sell? If so, than "foreclosure" will never show up with regards to the home in question. ... more

Did you receive a letter from your lender(s) that releases you from any deficiencies? It is often referred to as a 'release of liability'. If you have received this letter, your shouldn't be liable for any deficiency. However you may receive a 1099 which you would need to file with your 2012 taxes. Depending on your circumstances, you may or may not be liable for capital gains. ... more

You will need to understand the type of loan you had on the second. What you want to know is if a deficiency judgement has been filed against you.

A foreclosure does affect one getting a loan. If a lien is filed against you it could pop up on a future purchase.

I suggest you contact a real estate attorney who is the best resource to read through your documents and give you the legal advice you need.
