Did you know that bank foreclosure is at a 30 year high?
There are various reasons for such high levels of bank foreclosure such as: unemployment, an erratic stock market, and the fact that the cost of home ownership had increased. YOU HAVE OPTIONS! One very important thing to remember: Time is of the essence.
Many homeowners are not aware of all the options that are available to them to help save their home. If you do nothing, then you will get exactly that in return. Here are some quick tips to help you save your home or save your credit score from further “dings”:
Payoff / Refinance - This option may allow you to use the equity that you have established in your home to pay the delinquent amount. Depending on the interest rate of your new loan, your monthly payments might be reduced.
Reinstatement – Paying the entire default amount plus interest, attorney fees, late fees, taxes, missed payments and fees.
Loan Modification - This option may allow you to refinance the debt and / or extend the term of your existing mortgage loan.
Forbearance Plan - This option may provide for a temporary reduction or suspension of payments that will be increased at a later point to repay the delinquent amount over a specified period of time.
Partial Claim – A loan from the lender for a 2nd loan to include back payments, costs and fees.
Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure – This option may allow you to voluntarily "give back" the property to your Lender without further damaging your credit.
Bankruptcy – This option can liquidate debt and/or allow more time. I can refer you to a qualified bankruptcy attorney.
