These options include:

Loan Workout

After reviewing these options, almost in every situation when the homeowner must sell or thinks the only way out is losing the house to foreclosure, there is actually a third option. That third option is a Short Sale, and most often, is actually the best option - even if you also plan to file Bankruptcy.  A Short Sale in conjunction with Bankruptcy is a more complicated Short Sale process; however, with the guidance of their Attorney and experienced Short Sale Realtor, Arizona Short Sale homeowners can get the fresh start they are looking for.
