Debt is the American Homeowners Struggle.
Whether it is being underwater on your home (where your mortgage is more than the current market price of the home) where the
payments are no longer manageable or the credit card debt that you have come to rely on has become out of control, American homeowners continue to struggle significantly with their significant debt level. Most can not bring this debt down to get back on any payment track. This debt struggle for homeowners is impacting all of RI real estate as it is in many other areas of the country.
If your bank is participating with the National Mortgage Settlement Act of 2012 there may be some hope in your mortgage relief.
However, most RI homeowners who come to me for help with their financial struggling mortgage situation find their banks are not willing to do anything for them on the mortgage rate or reduction of mortgage principal. It does come down to considering a short sale many times. Please do not allow your home to go into foreclosure. The bank has a right to come after you years hence in this state for the monies they have lost from you on the mortgage balance when you go into foreclosure.
There is plenty to be said about living below ones means today but sometimes situations change whether it is financial loss, death of a partner, divorce, medical issues, etc. A short sale of a home is the better alternative than a foreclosure for sure. The debt level has usually reached a level of great difficulty to handle mentally and emotionally for most homeowners.
There is help with credit counselors (NEVER pay for credit counseling) by reaching out to the National Federation of Credit Counseling to see how they can help you get control of the outstanding debt you have. Always a good first start.
