Benefit from the short sale of your home in South Carolina

Imagine struggling with the loss of a job, increasing costs associated with your home and challenges making your mortgage payment. You may think your only option is to seek bankruptcy or to go into foreclosure, but that's not true. In fact, there are alternatives that may be available to you.

If your home's value is not higher than the remaining mortgage you have left, then a sale could still leave you with debt to pay. That could also happen even if your home is worth as much as your loan; you can only sell your home for what a buyer is willing to pay. That's where a short sale can help you. With a short sale, you can sell your home and have ways to reduce and mitigate the deficiency of cost for the property following the sale. Tax issues can be better anticipated, and you won't have to worry about your credit being affected as severely as a foreclosure would in most cases.

South Carolina may have many foreclosures and have struggled through the recession, but with the right planning, you have some options you can try that may allow you to keep your home or to sell your home and limit the amount of debt you're left with. You don't need to accept foreclosure as the only option available to you, since there are plenty of other options you can consider.

To learn more about what you can do if you need to get yourself out of debt and to eliminate your mortgage, our short sale webpage has more information. With the right planning, you can look into all your legal options before deciding on the one that will work best for your situation.
