Q: We need to sell our house quickly because of a job relocation. We're being advised to "sell short." How does a short sale affect my credit?
A: A short sale means you're selling your home for less than what you still owe on the mortgage. If you fail to make any payments still owed, your credit score
will suffer some damage.
