  1. Loan Modification: If your home is too far upside down in value - don't bother doing one of these.  You will just be financing an over valued property that may take a DECADE before you break even.  Go to step 2 below.

Frequently asked Short Sale Question:

QUESTION: By far, the most frequently asked question, "When you help me do a short sale, how much does this cost me?".

Answer: Zero out of your pocket for my services.  There is a listing agreement to get the home on the market and a commission is paid once we find a buyer and close on the property.  The commission is paid from the funds of the sale which reduces the amount the bank receives from the sale.  You as the original owner, walk away with no money from the sale and no money out of pocket to pay any closing service or commissions.

Several short sale articles are below.  If you find yourself facing foreclosure, consider the much better alternative of a short sale.   It is a better option and much less hard on your credit score.
