He told me that his hours at work had been cut back, so he did not think he could keep paying the mortgage. He was pretty certain that the house would not sell for enough to cover his debt. So he would rather “let the house go”, and rent something more affordable… get his financial feet back underneath him. I can understand his thinking, but a further conversation revealed that there was so much Nathan was unaware of about the impact this plan would actually have on his financial life. And he also did not know that he had another option.
When we discussed how we could lease the property and how he could earn a positive cash flow, he was immediately sold. So just what was it that he would have given up had he gone with the short-sale?
Essential to the above solution is for a homeowner to get help before letting the house payments go into arrears. Once the homeowner starts getting buried beneath the debt, it is very difficult to get out from underneath. Sometimes, selling short is unavoidable though, and that will be the subject my next blog.
