Ok so here it goes. I came across this forum while looking for answers. My husband recently was laid off and we are moving to another state where he will begin working. Here is my question. We are upside down in our house about 25k. We have never been late on our mortgage. I have reached out to a RE who is really pushing a short sale. We are looking to move within the next month or so. I have researched property management companies to handle the rental of our house because we will not be in the area. I am not sure if the rental amount is comparable to what we will need to rent out our home. I will not find that out until I have spoken with the property management firm. I am really confused on what to do. Try to short sale or rent the property. We do not have 25k to pay the difference. We are in TN and moving to GA.
