On the one hand I don't think she pulled the best comps and I do have another realtor coming tomorrow. If his data suggests the same I have few option:<br/>1. Try to rent it (which I don't think we could do for enough to cover the mortgage, taxes, and HOA fees.<br/>2. Try for a short sale<br/>3. Deed-in-lieu<br/>4. Just walk away.<br/><br/>We need to move. I've been out of work for 15 months and my husband is about to lose his job in June. That said we have NEVER paid the mortgage late. I did everything right - bought a place that suited my budget, not what I was approved for, had a down-payment, planned to stay for a while etc but then I lost my job. We're in a city/state with really high unemployment and so many foreclosures/short sales. We're not backed my Freddie/Fannie or eligible for any of the new programs because our lender is ING. I'm going to talk to them about modifying the loan and getting a lower <a href="http://www.zillow.com/Mortgage_Rates/">interest rate</a> but this isn't going to change anything except perhaps make renting the home out easier for us.<br/>So . . . since I've never been late/missed a mortgage payment I want to protect my credit as much as possible. I would ask the lender to close my loan with "paid satisfactorily" as opposed to "paid less than owed." If they approve the listing as a short sale, I assume I have to continue to make my mortgage payments? What if the short sale takes months - come June we're both out of work. If I stop paying the mortgage until (if) it sells this will appear on my <a href="http://www.zillow.com/mortgage-glossary/Credit-Report/">credit report</a> yes? Is there a way to negotiate with the bank to suspend payments while the home is listed for short sale?<br \><br \>3 replies Sun, 28 Mar 2010 12:53:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Listing-a-short-sale-and-paying-the-mortgage/338418/ 2010-03-28T12:53:00Z how do i post an open house ad on my listing ? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-do-i-post-an-open-house-ad-on-my-listing/291522/ 3 replies Mon, 26 Oct 2009 03:08:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/how-do-i-post-an-open-house-ad-on-my-listing/291522/ 2009-10-26T03:08:00Z I am trying to move indicator arrow to the correct property I have listed @ 91 Adams Street Warwick http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I-am-trying-to-move-indicator-arrow-to-the-correct-property-I-have-listed-91-Adams-Street-Warwick/228308/ Indicator arrow returns to another property when I hit save.
