You must protect as much of your net worth as possible at all times, even at the expense of a temporary decline in your credit rating. I have watched many people throw their life savings away trying to maintain a "good" credit score. I would rather have a 500 credit score with $20K in the bank than an 800 credt score with $2K in the bank.

First and foremost, contact your bank (which you are doing tomorrow.) Second, hire an agent who is experienced in short sales not one who thinks they can do one. An inexperienced agent can do a lot more harm than good. Between your bank and your agent, most of your questions should be answered based upon your specific situation. There are varying opinions about making your payment. It used to be that a bank wouldn't even talk to you unless you were 90 days behind. That's not the case anymore b/c many of them want to be proactive. I've had a client do a <a href="http://www.zillow.com/loan-modification/">loan mod</a> while she tried to short sale her house. It took some of the pressure off even though it was only temporary.<br/><br/>You are on the right path. Now you need some key people to give you advice. My best advice... DOCUMENT EVERYTHING! It has always come in handy when I have dealt with banks on short sales.</p> Sun, 28 Mar 2010 13:04:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Listing-a-short-sale-and-paying-the-mortgage/338418/ 2010-03-28T13:04:00Z
