“I lost my job and am burning up my savings very fast. At the current rate I will only be able to pay my mortgage for a few months more. My lender won’t talk to me about a short sale because I am current on the payments.
I am trying to maintain my credit and don’t understand why they won’t consider a short sale until I am delinquent on payments. What is going on? David.”

Here was our answer to his question. Some banks just won’t consider a short sale until you a behind on payments. It’s just the way it is.
In my opinion, if you are not employed then saving money is more important than salvaging your credit. Perfect credit won’t do much good when you can’t afford to keep food on the table or pay the light bill.
But, you need to make a decision based on what is most important to you. I can’t make that decision for you. I will tell you that I would save my cash until I got a job.
The foreclosure process will drag out for 6-12 months in most states. You can live rent free until you short sale. Thinking about a short sale?
