Stop! Home Foreclosure Can be Prevented

Aug 29, 2008
The country's current financial situation, a high unemployment rate and the drastic downturn of the economy have led to serious problems in the real estate market. Many homeowners are devastated and afraid they may lose their property. They feel especially troubled keeping up with mortgage and credit card payments after losing their job, or fighting higher living costs and frequently receive notices from lenders by mail or phone, requesting to be contacted immediately. It is obvious there is a serious problem at hand and it needs to be dealt with, without any further delay.

Home foreclosures do not happen every day and therefore it comes as no surprise that affected homeowners lack the proper background education to help themselves get out of this threatening situation. They feel awkward and ashamed about their lack of financial comprehension, and the fact they do not recognize the correct actions to take to stop this fiasco.

If you are a homeowner falling behind on mortgage payments and need to stop foreclosure, get professional help. Unable to make financial changes or alter your personal spending habits, you will need expert counseling and specialized evaluation programs to help you resolve your financial issues and stop a home foreclosure from happening.

With today's distressed housing market floating like a rudderless ship, the best action to take if confronted with foreclosure is to find a lender willing to work with you and whose first priority is to provide the best help possible, so you can keep your property.

What are the most efficient steps a homeowner can take if faced with foreclosure? The first solution that should be considered, if there is enough equity in your property, is refinancing. Establish a relationship with a reputable Investment Services Corporation, preferably one that can handle all types of lending related business services. They will submit your application to every viable lender in their network, and exhaust all options to get your claim accepted in the quickest possible time frame.

An experienced financial service leader will point out the many choices a homeowner has to stop a foreclosure tread and help him get back on his feet. If refinancing is not an option, restructuring an existing loan may be another possible solution. This is especially recommended if the existing mortgage has an adjustable rate. If the loan modification is accepted the borrower will be allowed to skip a few payments and, depending on when the loan was closed, and which negotiating tactics were used, may even be eligible for an interest rate reduction, resulting in lower monthly payments. Believe me; the bank would prefer to have less defaulted loans on its books.

During a time when the real estate market is hot, the homeowner may think about selling his home. If that is not an option, a short sale may be considered and negotiations with the loss mitigation department will commence. In this instance the lender may take less than what the homeowner owes on the loan to avoid a lengthy and costly foreclosure process. Now let's presume this alternative is rejected; another option is to apply for a deed-in-lieu. If approved, the homeowner simply gives the home back to the lender and walks away with a clean slate.

Never ignore money problems, and never take a foreclosure lightly. In the end it will lead to bad credit, damaged credit reputation, and will affect future borrowing abilities. It will take a long time before credit is restored. That is all fine and dandy, but what if pretty much every option has failed? As a last resort a homeowner can file for bankruptcy, but that will only save the home temporarily, and if one payment is missed during this process the lender will put the home right back into foreclosure.

Foreclosure has no specific face. It can affect all families and is not related to class, race or religion. It is not gender specific and can happen for many reasons. Do not think it cannot happen to you, and if some day it would catch up with you and you are looking for help, just remember: don't get caught in the trap of an institution that promises the world, yet feeds off your fear and despair, and in the end, does not deliver. Choose wisely and find the company with an excellent and committed team of professionals. Hire experts who can make the loan process stress-free and simple, who will try to fund your loan and are able to tell you the outcome in 48 hours, and who can postpone any foreclosure until the loan closing has been accepted. They are the people you can trust!
