Going through a short sale is much more desirable for home sellers who are insolvent and unable to make their mortgage payments than going through a foreclosure. Credit scores are affected, but at a much more minimal rate than if the homeowner forecloses. It is also much easier to recover from a short sale. Often, if the seller begins to work on their credit score, they can purchase again in two or three years.
