    short sale (of house)

    A sale of a house in which the proceeds fall short of what the owner still owes on the mortgage. Many lenders will agree to accept the proceeds of a short sale and forgive the rest of what is owed on the mortgage when the owner cannot make the mortgage payments. By accepting a short sale, the lender can avoid a lengthy and costly foreclosure, and the owner is able to pay off the loan for less than what he owes. See also deed in lieu (or foreclosure).

    Short-Sale meaning pre-foreclosure. No, it does not show up on your credit report. This transaction will not hurt your credit at all. If short-sale fails than next step is foreclosure which will hurt your credit big time.
