Are You Walking the Tight Rope Towards Foreclosure | Think Short Sale in Real Estate

Are You Walking the Tight Rope Towards Foreclosure | Think Short Sale in RI real estate

homeowners in RI real estate who have reached out to me about their dire home situations.  About to lose a job and job loss (hours cut in half) for both of these couples.  I told them it is NOT an option to do a foreclosure on their home…that is it.  They are walking the tight rope towards foreclosure thinking that somehow someone from somewhere will rescue them. Only they can make the rescue.

They have already tried a loan modification attempt with both of their banks and it was not a solution.

An attempt at loan modification (oh, can you guess the cynicism here) and one all homeowners who are thinking foreclosure or short sale need to try to do.

Understanding the long term financial consequences of foreclosure is so important.  READ THIS:  Your lender will probably require you to pay some of your mortgage debt outstanding if you walk away from your home and the home goes into foreclosure.  It may not be this year or next year but they can come after you for that debt amount.  They will want that money.   You need to understand that there are other alternative options out there for you like short sale.

 

Be aware that most mortgage lenders do not want to foreclose on your home.  They want you to come up with another solution whether it is deed in lieu or short sale.  My goal as a RI short sale agent is to get you successfully out of a home through short sale and moving on with your life without the debt burden following you.  Have questions on short sales, foreclosures and options in your RI home sale situation then contact me at RiByTheBay@gmail.com or call me at 401.529.7849.  

Foreclosure can lead to owing the Mortgage lender the deficiency balance on your outstanding mortgage amount after they foreclose on the home.

 

Also, it will take you longer to buy another home with a Fannie Mae mortgage for at least 7  years due to the negative hit on your credit score.  Know your options?  If not call me.

 

A short sale allows you to move on with your life in a home sale much better than a foreclosure.
