honestly, I see way more upside to NOT reaffirming.  There are other ways you can get positive credit to help rebuild other than reaffirming the mortgage.  Not only that, but you can also sell in the years to come.  Your name is still on the deed so you'll need to sell either way to release that.  Not reaffirming is just eliminating you of future liabilities of the property.  You have almost nothing to gain and everything to lose by reaffirming.
