Pre Foreclosure…Don’t Panic.
Many homeowners in our country are loosing hope. Getting behind on your mortgage payment can happen for many reasons. For example:
• COVID Deferment plan has expired
• Permanent Job Loss
• Death in the family
List goes on and on….sound familiar?
First off, DON’T PANIC. There is a solution but if you’re already getting letters in the mail from your bank or lender threatening foreclosure there isn’t a lot of time.
A Short Sale
A short sale is a process where we can negotiate the sale of your property back to the lender for less than the home is worth.
Because without doing this your property would fall into foreclosure ruining your credit and your ability to re-qualify to buy for a LONG time. You do not want a foreclosure mark on your credit history and should be avoided at all costs!
It is important to understand just like EVERY home is different so is EVERY person’s situation. The processes can be lengthy and LEGAL. You do not want to try and negotiate this on your own.
Step #1 – Get a property valuation
Step #2 – Obtain a hardship letter
Step #3 – Contact the lender for a hardship application
Step #4 – Prepare the sales contract
Step #5 – Assemble the short sale package for lender review
Step #6 – Loss mitigator reviews your short sale package
Step #7 – Negotiate the short sale and go to closing

You CANNOT sit and do nothing! Do not try and face foreclosure on your own!
