Foreclosure Doesn't Have to Be Your Future

Jun 11, 2008
If you are having trouble paying your mortgage and you are worried that you are headed for foreclosure you should stop the negative thought processes and really sit down and think about your options.

So many people talk themselves into foreclosure being the only option, but it doesn't have to be. There are some steps that you can take to avoid foreclosure, or at least do your best. You owe it to yourself to do all that you can to avoid foreclosure once and for all.

What To Do When You Can't Pay

Many people become terrified when they cannot pay their mortgage and they decide that they should just stop communicating with their lender about their loan. The problem here is that when you don't deal with the problem head on that it will only get worse. You want to confront the problem head on from the start so that you can take steps to avoid foreclosure.

The best thing that you can do when you cannot afford to make a payment on your mortgage is call your lender. Believe it or not, your lender will understand that there are times when you cannot make your payment.

If you call your lender and let them know that you can't pay now but you plan on paying next month and that you will get caught back up they will feel better knowing that you are going to pay and that you are not going to simply back out on your responsibility.

Another thing that you should try to do when you cannot make a payment on your home loan is to pay as much as you can. For instance, when you have a $1,000 payment due and you cannot pay it, you could pay even $200 and show that you are trying to keep current with your loan.

You can then call your mortgage company and let them know why you are behind and that you plan to get caught up and that you will be making regular smaller payments as you can. Ask for help if you need it. Many people assume that their mortgage company will not work with them on their payments, but this isn't true.

If you go to your financing company and you let them know that things are really rough, they may be willing to change your due date or even help you refinance to make the loan more affordable to you. The worst thing that you can do is fail to contact your mortgage company at all. You need to let them know what is going on and what you plan to do.

When you are proactive about contacting with the financing company you'll find that they are much more willing to work with you than when you simply ignore your responsibility and ignore their attempts to communicate with you about the debts.

Communication is key, so don't avoid the calls and letters, instead you should be the one who will initiate contact and let them know that there is a problem and what you are going to do about it.
