Short Sale vs. Foreclosure: What’s the Difference?


A short sale is when a homeowner sells their home for less than the balance owed on the mortgage. A foreclosure occurs when a homeowner fails to make mortgage payments and the lender seizes the home.


The main difference between a short sale and foreclosure is that a short sale is voluntary, while a foreclosure is involuntary. A short sale typically happens when a homeowner is struggling to make mortgage payments and wants to avoid foreclosure. A foreclosure happens when a homeowner stops making mortgage payments and the lender seizes the home.


There are some key differences between a short sale and foreclosure that you should be aware of before making a decision about what to do with your home. A short sale will damage your credit score, but not as much as a foreclosure will. A foreclosure will stay on your credit report for seven years, while a short sale will stay on your credit report for three years.
