Is a Short Sale as bad as a Repo on your FICO score?
[ Edited ]
I have been laid off form my job in the flooring industry for the 2nd time in 4 months.  I have a 1st ($200,000) and a 2nd ($42,000) with the same lender(First Franklin-Home Loan Services).  I will not be able to sell my house and pay it off.  I was wondering if I get the bank to accept a short sale instead of just having them repo it, does it still damage my credit the same?  Currently my Fico avg is only about 640.
