Should I Continue Paying My Credit Cards During A Northeast Ohio Short Sale?

Northeast OH – The Stop Foreclosure Institute recently received a question from Paul. Here is Paul’s Question.

“I am selling my house as a short sale. I am behind on the mortgage payments. Do you think I should still pay my credit cards?” Paul.

Here is our answer. I all depends on what is important to you. Can you afford your mortgage payment if you stopped paying the credit cards?

If the answer is yes and you don’t want to move, then I would recommend that you stop paying the credit cards. Obviously that will hurt your credit.

But, if you want to keep your home, then you will probably think it is worth it. Then again, I have seen people who would rather have the good credit.

However, if you do want to move, then it would be better to keep paying the cards and short selling the house.

Missed mortgage payments won’t have to much of an impact on your credit score 12-18 months down the road, especially if you short sale.

However, a credit card that you never pay on again will stay on your credit for a longer time. The debt will show up as written off and that impacts your credit for a longer time than missed payments.
