Life can throw you a lot of curveballs. Perhaps you bought a home a few years ago — and have enjoyed living there — when suddenly you lose your job.

Now, you can’t make the mortgage payment. Or, maybe a new employer wants your services, but only if you move halfway across the country.

In this video from the Khan Academy, you’ll learn about short sales, and whether or not this approach is right for you.
