Don’t use your Visa to make your San Diego home mortgage payment!

Holding on to your home is an honorable goal, but going deep into credit card debt to do so is a sure path to economic ruin.

Your credit cards will only go so far, and then what? You could lose the house to foreclosure and be left with a huge high-interest unsecured debt.

Don’t wait and let the situation get worse.

If you wait, the financial fallout can be even more dire…

If you are in financial trouble or think you may be headed that way, consider getting out from under that house debt through a short sale. Under California law, the banks that own your home loan or loans cannot come back to you for the deficiency if you sell. If you allow the house to go into foreclosure, your second lien holder can sue you and obtain a deficiency judgment.

Meanwhile, if you’ve run up credit card debt that you can’t or don’t want to pay, the credit card companies can also sue and obtain judgments.

The only way out of those judgments is to pay them or file for bankruptcy.

Once you’ve listed your home as a short sale with an experienced San Diego short sale agent, you can stop making those payments – giving yourself space to breathe and to accumulate some funds.

Experienced is the key word. Don’t list with an agent who lacks the experience and expertise to not only find a buyer but to negotiate with the banks to bring your short sale to a closing. This is the time to enlist the aid of short sale specialist.

The economy is still in an unsettled state, being buffeted by forces neither you nor we can control. So conserve your cash and make decisions that will aid in your long term financial health.
