Yes, a Chicago Short Sale May Actually Help Your Credit

Posted on July 11th, 2011 in All Articles, Short Selling/Buying.

Chicago IL – The Stop Foreclosure Institute recently received an e-mail from a recent short sale seller. We had helped him short sale his house.

Here is his e-mail.

“Hi, I hope all is well. I am getting back to you on my credit scores. My score went from 663 in Feb. to 770 in June.

I know this is counter intuitive but must be because my outstanding debts were reduced. I am happy with this. Julio. “

I agree with him. I think the reduction in debt actually helped his credit score. We see so many people that are leveraged over their head. They keep paying everything on time because they don’t want back credit.

But, they can’t get a loan because they owe too much money. So even thought their credit is good, they still can’t get a loan. That’s crazy! Don’t you agree?

Our theory is that this guy falls into that category. When he short sold his house, it actually helped out his credit rating because it erased so much debt.

Yes, how much debt you have does make up part of your credit rating. The credit bureaus won’t tell exactly how much it affects your score. But, it does affect it.

So, a short sale might actually help your credit score. E-mail us if you know of any other stories like this.

Important Notice

Phil Buoscio, Better Living Realty – Buoscio Brokerage, Inc., and the Stop Foreclosure Institute are not affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. Our services have not been reviewed or endorse by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?

Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.

However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.

We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.

This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.

You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.
