Foreclosure or Short Sale after bankruptcy
I filed for bankruptcy 2 years ago Chapter 7 when my husband became ill. Now he's passed away and I can't get his SS checks because I'm too young. I cannot afford my mortgage payments and am trying to do a short sale. I was advised that I can just walk away because I never reaffirmed by mortgage with the bank.
What will affect my credit score worse a short sale or a foreclosure?
