Q: We need to sell our house quickly because of a job relocation. We're being advised to "sell short." Will my credit score suffer?
A: A short sale means you're selling your home for less than what you still owe on the mortgage
. Your credit score will suffer some damage, but not as much as if you’d had to foreclose.
