What is a short sale?

Moscow, ID |

It sounds like it might be able to help me avoid foreclosure, but I'm not exactly sure what it is.

  1. A short sale is when you sell your house for less than you owe on it. This can only be done with the lender agreeing to accept the reduced amount. If you have more than one mortgage on the property then this can be very complicated but still can be worth looking into. Good luck.
