    Lost job House going into short sale
    I am 63 years old and I have lost my well paying job and have lots of debts which I am not paying. (I live in Wisconsin)
    I cannot afford my house so it is going into a short sell.
    I have a small amount of money in retirement which may be enough to purchase a forclosed house in cash.
    Is this smart? Should I wait? Can anyone come after the house I pay cash for?
