Does a short sale effect my credit?

A short sale does adversely affect a person’s credit report, though the negative impact is typically less than a foreclosure. Short sales are a type of settlement. Short sale can remain on your credit report for 7 years. Depending on other credit information, it can be possible to obtain another mortgage 2-3 year after a short sale.
