Picture
You might have heard of Dave Ramsey. He has a popular radio program where he talks explains the benefits of getting out of debt. He's a zealot for the debt free life. "You don't need to see the inside of a restaurant unless you are working there," he tells people in financial trouble.

So what does Dave recommend that someone should do in order to get out of debt? Reduce spending, eat at home, pay off high interest debt first, etc. A short sale is a great way to reduce debt. Where else can you wipe out $100,000, $200,000, and even more in debt? That will make up for eating a lot of rice and beans.

Do you have a house that is underwater to the tune of $50,000 or more? Try a short sale. It's a great way to erase all that upside down debt. You can rent another home for 2-3 years and buy your next house at the bottom of the market and save on a lower house price. You will also save on the interest over the life of the loan. Did you know that on the average 30 year mortgage, you pay as much in interest as you pay for the house? If you wiped out $100,000 in upside down debt, that means you actually wiped out another $100,000 in interest. I think Dave might be proud.
