You've stressed and gone down every avenue you can to try to keep your house, but you're over your head! What can you do? Let the house go into foreclosure? Rather than ruining your credit, a short sale may be a viable option. A short sale can be a dignified solution to a financial crisis. Many homeowners today owe more than they are worth!
