Should I file Bankruptcy?

There are different types of bankruptcies.  There is a Chapter 7 that will discharge you from all your debts; qualification will depend on how much is owed and your income.  Then there is a Chapter 13 which is a 3 to 5 year re-payment plan for your debts.

A bankruptcy prior to a short sale does not help you with getting a fresh start because the lender will still have to do the full foreclosure process to get title back to the house.  A bankruptcy will eliminate the debt that is owed. However, many people want a fresh start now and they don’t want to wait until their lender forecloses in order to start cleaning up their credit and moving forward with their life.

Sell Fast Realty has worked with many bankruptcy attorneys that recommend to their clients to sell the house first on a short sale then, if needed, file bankruptcy.  Some sellers are only behind on their house payments and the rest of their bills are current.  I do recommend that you attempt a short sale prior to filing bankruptcy.  We do have referrals for bankruptcy attorneys.

Can I Short Sale the house after a Bankruptcy?

Yes you can!  The most important part of selling your house after a bankruptcy is to make sure you have the right real estate agent and negotiator working on your behalf.  When Sell Fast Realty does a short sale in which the seller had included their house in the bankruptcy, we obtain a full satisfaction of the loan, which means NO deficiency.  Our #1 Focus is YOU!  You will still need to provide financial information even though the lender can’t come after you for the debt.  HOWEVER, if you use the wrong real estate agent that is not familiar with the short sale process and you only receive a lien release, the mortgage note becomes valid again which means you have reaffirmed on that debt and you are now liable.
