I am considering selling my house as a distressed sale rather than doing a forclosure….?


I now my house will be sold for less than i paid for it. Will I be responsible for the difference? Lets say I paid 300,000 for the house and it sold for 100,000. Will I still be responsible to pay back the 200,000 under the distressed sale?
