Hello everyone Shawn Polston here with Tucson Short Sale Negotiator, your top short sale team in the Tucson area, thanks for checking out my blog. I work with Keller Williams Realty in the Tucson area and my team and I are here to help distressed property owners avoid foreclosure on a daily basis. If you have questions on your underwater mortgage, or if you are already considering a short sale, please take a minute to browse my website or call me directly to discuss all of your Tucson real estate options.

Today I wanted to go over the option of a deed in lieu of foreclosure for Tucson homeowners who can no longer afford their mortgage or have stopped making payments. Lately I have had a lot of homeowners ask me whether this is a smart option to consider for getting rid of their underwater mortgage. A deed in lieu of foreclosure simply means you sit down with your lender and sign over your property to the bank. It is essentially a voluntary foreclosure and in most cases your lender may not be in favor of a deed in lieu. A homeowner has to qualify for a deed in lieu and it is possible that it may not help in the long run. Usually a deed in lieu will look the same on your credit as a normal foreclosure which is one of the reasons why I do not suggest them. In the case of a short sale, it will show up as a settlement of debt on your credit report and may inflict much less damage to your credit score.

If you are behind on your mortgage and unsure of your options give me a call today to figure out what is right for you. Stop by my website or call me today to arrange a free consultation to get you out from under your distressed property. Thanks for tuning in and I hope you have a great day.
