By now you have certainly heard or read about the ongoing rise in the foreclosure rate across America, thanks in part to rising interest rates and increasingly tight credit standards.
Lulled into a false sense of security, many homeowners tend to think it can or will not happen to them, but would you know what to do if you were actually faced with foreclosure? It is important to be familiar with the terminology and your options so that that you can make an informed decision on the best way to move forward in a stressful situation such as foreclosure.
This article from FreddieMac.com is a good resource that clearly defines the terminology associated with foreclosure and walks through some of the financing options you may want to consider. Among the topics covered in this helpful article:
- What to do if you can not pay your mortgage
- What if you can no longer afford to keep your home
- Beware of scam artists
I would also add to the list of steps to take when facing foreclosure – contact an experienced Realtor! Along with a reputable lender, an experienced Realtor can help explain your options and guide you through the choice that is right for you.
