San Diego Short Sale Process-My Credit After Short Sale vs Foreclosure

San Diego Short Sale Process

What about my credit after I short sale my San Diego home?

What is worse on your credit score, a short sale or foreclosure? In many cases, there can be a real benefit to doing a short sale on your San Diego home instead of a foreclosure. Both will have a bad effect on your credit score, but most credit experts agree that a short sale is less damaging than a foreclosure. Plus it may be easier to get a home loan in the future with a short sale. If you are not sure how long it will take to get back to a positive equity position in your San Diego home, check out our website www.ShortOrStaySanDiego.com.  Or, call San Diego short sale specialist Gary Kent at 858-457-5368 for a quick confidential analysis of your situation.

What is worse on your credit, Short Sale or Foreclosure?

The key credit element that most lenders use is the FICO score. Designed by the Fair Issacs company, this is a complex score based on all of your credit history, credit diversity, credit balances vs. available credit. In short, they are using it to predict how likely you are to go 90 days late. By definition, the California foreclosure process takes longer than 90 days so automatically you will prove the worst to Fair Isaacs and your score will reflect it.
