    Even if you can make the case, the cost of mounting the lawsuit and collecting the judgment will be more than $1,300, so it probably doesn't make practical sense to pursue it.

    John’s Answer

    It is still your until the Sheriff's Sale actually takes place. You still might have some options to avert the Sheriff's Sale. For instance, have you used your two statutory stays that total 30 days? Cash for keys and a deed in lieu should still potentially be on the table. You should consult an attorney about this matter. If you can't afford a modification, have you tried listing the property with a realtor? There isn't a lot of detail here, but sometimes, even at this stage, something can be done. In either event you will not be kicked out right away when the Sheriff's Sale takes place and may have some additional time to take other measures.
