Knoxville Loan ModificationsIn our Ask the Expert Section, we recently received a question from Yvonne, she asks, "I haven't made a mortgage payment on my Knoxville home in over a year. I've tried everything to make paying a my mortgage possible, including working 2 jobs. But, I have two kids and I can't seem to make ends meet. I tried working with my lender but they've been a pain. I started a short sale but don't want to let the world know about my situation. Should I be shamed of doing a short sale on my Knoxville home?"

While every situation is a little different, there are many people who have been hit by hardship and who have been in a very similar to you, which is why short sales have been so popular in recent years. There is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of by opting to do a Knoxville short sale. The decision to complete a short sale is not an easy one. In many cases, prior to deciding to do a short sale, homeowners have already been put through the ringer by the lender. They may have tried to complete a modification or approach there lender for help, only to have to help for the efforts.
