Can you tell me how short selling 3 rental homes will affect our credit? Our scores are 750 currently. Haven’t found any information on the impact of 3 homes compared to doing just one. Is it true that actual missed payments on the loans is what hurts your credit more then the short sale itself? I currently have offers on all 3 and am about to be 60 days past due on the loans. We have two rentals in AZ (a non-forgiving state) and one in CA.
Just wondering if we should try and make arrangements with the collection dept to lessen the impact on our credit report or does this not even matter? Once it goes to collections, it is done? Do you know that if we do pay on the loans, will this affect the lenders decision to accept the short sale?
Any advice you can give would be great. Thanks so much for your time and expertise.
