A short sale will remain on your credit report for seven years. The starting point for this period depends on the timeliness of your mortgage payments. If your payments were never late and the account was in good standing at the time of the short sale, the period begins on the date of the sale. If your payments were delinquent, the seven-year period begins on the original delinquency date.
