Is One Choice Better Than Another Regarding Foreclosure, Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure, or Short Sale?

Posted by Matthew T. Desrochers | Mar 21, 2017 | 0 Comments

Deed in lieu of foreclosure: one voluntarily gives their home to the lender in exchange for cancellation of their loan

Short Sale: where the lender allows the homeowner to sell their home for less than what is owned

Foreclosure: where the lender takes the home through a court proceeding

Is one choice better for your credit score than another?

No: All of the options come out to be about the same on your credit score because all of these events represent a loan default. Check out this chart showing how each of these items will affect credit scores at different credit levels.

However, lenders may look more favorably at a short sale than a foreclosure.
