Short Sale

A short sale is a commonly used alternative to a foreclosure. If you can no longer afford to make your mortgage payments and your home is worth less than you owe, a short sale may allow you to sell your home to pay off the mortgage. In a short sale, the lender agrees to accept an amount less than what is actually owed on the loan based on a showing of financial hardship.
