Common Reasons for Foreclosure

The main reason why there is foreclosure is because the homeowner was not able to update the monthly mortgage payment to a lender. Obviously, during this stage, financial struggle is very evident. You won’t miss a single month for a mortgage if you are financially capable, unless otherwise you were not able to work on it which is most of the time will not happen. The truth behind lags in paying monthly mortgage is the financial difficulty. That is why it is important that each homeowner should have the idea about the cases that may result to foreclosure so they can be able to prepare ahead of time.

There are a lot of reasons to be considered but these are just the obvious reasons that everybody should be wary of:

1. Health Problems

According to the old cliché, health is wealth. It’s true. No matter how wealthy you are if your health is compromised, your money will become nonsense. It is either you can’t enjoy using it because of your health condition or your money will all go to your medication. If health is affected, it will tend to pull you down economically and may make you unable to update your monthly mortgage.

Foreclosure Homes for Sale

If you think that foreclosure is a threat to every homeowner and it is something that everybody must avoid, this is not necessarily true all the time. There are some people who can benefit out of foreclosure, and these are usually the buyers. For a homeowner who failed to pay for a monthly mortgage installment, his home is now under foreclosure. In order to collect the debt, this is usually sold to banks, lenders and other government agencies. Aside from the institutions mentioned, a foreclosure home can also be sold to individual or anybody interested to buy. If the home is under foreclosure, there’s what we called “pressure” in selling it. And if it is under pressure, homeowners will tend to sell it in a considerably low price. So as a buyer, you can benefit out of it. Basically, a buyer of a foreclosure home can save from ten up to fifty percent. No wonder there are a lot of buyers considering buying a home that is under foreclosure. The downside of this is that, well obviously, the home is not new at all and may need some repairs.

Save your Home Through Bankruptcy

Time will come in your life that you will be overwhelmed with debts and may experience financial crisis. The worst part here is when you are at this situation, banks keep knocking on your door reminding you of your mortgages and if you fail to follow up on that, you may lose your home forever.

This is a very strong shield against your creditors suing you or foreclosing your home.
Make sure you will pass the means test so that you can apply for a bankruptcy in an effort to save your home. This test will compute your monthly income and it must be below the state’s media income. Ensure that your disposable income is not over a certain amount, or else you will fail the test and you will not be evaluated based on your eligibility for bankruptcy.

At the first sign of foreclosure attack, attend some credit seminars so you will know how you go about the challenge of foreclosure. It is important you must equip yourself with knowledge before making any decision.

Most of all, have your documents ready for evaluation. Prepare your bank statements, your billing information and other expenses because this will become a basis in filing a bankruptcy. You must exaggerate your debts and show as in you are in the worst debt condition to become approved of bankruptcy.

It is always important to talk to people who have knowledge about bankruptcy. Ask a lawyer about this. The lawyer will review your situation and your supporting documents and they can be able to help you in applying for bankruptcy. You will be informed if you are eligible to apply and you can do things in the most legal way.

Learn more about bankruptcy and know about the capability to help you save your home against foreclosure. Bankruptcy is a complex process and you may need help from people who have experience about this or who have the necessary knowledge. As long as you do things legally, this won’t complicate your situation.

Scammed Over Helped

If you think foreclosure is a hell for everybody, well not all the time. There are some people who can find opportunity to earn money amidst the foreclosure crisis. These are the kind of people who are taking advantage of the vulnerability of other people just to earn profit for themselves.

When a person is suffering from discouragement or disappointment, they tend to seek comfort from all the people around who are willing to offer some help. The victims of foreclosures are the primary target of those we called “scammers”. They are haunting on people who are in desperate need of help for their problem.

Well, this could be good bait for those who are taking advantage over the situation, but I am sure you would not like this to happen to you. A tragedy over tragedy is already a complete disaster. Just thinking that you are about to lose your home and at the same time lose your money from people whom you think could offer help is very tragic. We are economically challenged, and people will do everything just to earn money, even scamming those who are already suffering.

The Aftermath of Foreclosure

In life, we should accept the fact that if there are struggles that is coming along the way, there's a corresponding cost to that. It cannot be something we should be feared of if we know it will not affect our life and the lives of the people around us. If circumstances happened in our life, expect that it will affect an area of our life and our love ones.

For foreclosure, it could be an unfortunate event for every homeowners. This is something we should avoid and we should prevent from happening because it may either directly or indirectly affect not only your life and your family but also that of the society.

Both the lender and the borrower should carry their own burden. At times like this, everybody must need to be educated and have full awareness about this. You might be sleeping sound at the comfort of your home without knowing that you will lose it the following day. All people that is involve in the process of foreclosure must be aware and should be given an opportunity to know the situation.

If you let foreclosure to happen, it will create chaos in the society. That is why the government is involve on this. The government must also share an effort to help both the lenders and the borrowers to work out on foreclosure threat and prevent it as much as possible.

If there is foreclosure, the following may happen in the society:

1. Crime rate will increase

If everybody seems to be losing home, they may come into a desperate move in order to get the attention of the people involve in the foreclosure process. This will make the neighborhoods not organized, thus there is a greater possibility of crime.

2. General Crisis

Foreclosure may be happening to a single family, but if you are going to sum it up in one location, you may find it as a general problem. Everybody is suffering regardless of the status you have in life. Whether you are rich or poor, young or old, everybody can become a victim and this can be a crisis in general.

3. Emotional Damage

We may be able to quantify the damage by looking at the monetary side. But the emotional damage that this crisis has brought in to every family is something irreversible. This cannot be undone and will cause trauma to the affected families.

We may not be able to see the bigger picture now. But if we just let this happen,we cannot be able to bring back the society that we are aspiring for. That is why the government, the lender and the borrower must work hand in hand to put barricade against foreclosure, because once this will penetrate a single family, it may directly or indirectly affect the whole society in general. This is the real cost of the foreclosure. It is not only damaging you financially, but most of all, it will damage the society and your family's whole being.

The Government's Perspective on Foreclosure Crisis

The foreclosure crisis is said to be the result of the government's performance. Nobody wants to experience this and everybody might be striving and doing their best in order to save their own homes. But if the economy is really low and people cannot be able to get the income needed in order to pay monthly amortization, no matter what the residence will do, foreclosure may come to them.

The government plays a vital role when it comes to the economic condition of the area. It is their sole responsibility to make sure that income is properly distributed to all the people. The government must also see to it that they will establish a strong economic condition that it can handle the population of their area. If the government could not be able to handle this aspect, this may bring chaos to the economy and the impact will then be visible to the community. That is why the solution for foreclosure crisis must always come and start from the government.

The real story behind the foreclosure crisis can be viewed entirely through the banks. The banks can actually make trillions of dollars on bad mortgage loans. This now can be used to buy houses at bubble-inflated prices. If the housing bubble will collapse, it will put most of the mortgages under water. That is the main reason why the community could not afford to pay their mortgages anymore. If the government will allow the market to run its course, this could be a big loss for bans and investors.

This is now the scene where the government should come to the rescue. If the government could be able to uplift the income, this will help the banks by making people able to pay their underwater mortgages.

The government has been organizing several programs to ensure that they are doing their part to cease the battle against foreclosure crisis. Programs like Home Affordability Modification Program (HAMP) can help people to review their mortgages and appeal for loan modification.

So far, with all the resolutions and suggestions appealed by the government, nothing has really been effective in pointing out the underlying housing problem and fix it permanently. Although the effort is there to alleviate the conditions, foreclosure can't just be easily get rid of the system. There are a lot of proposals and programs, these may have minimize the problem but not completely been eliminated.
The reason why people are still suffering despite the fact that the government has been giving all the efforts and shelled out amount of money is because they forgot the fundamentals. If the government can really start working out on the cause of this issue, foreclosure can be nowhere to be found. The truth is, if government can establish a strong economic condition, it will give opportunities and jobs to people. If people have a credible an d strong resources, they can be able to pay their mortgages, and that's the end of foreclosure.

If the government and the people can work out on the root instead of providing solutions that may not completely fix the problem, I believe we all can defeat the foreclosure crisis.

Say No To Foreclosure

Our home is our treasure. This is where we are building strong foundation of our family. But what if you are facing the challenge of foreclosure? How are you going to fight for your right to own back the home that plays a vital role in molding your family values?

When there is a possibility of facing foreclosure, you can still save your home by filing a Notice of Default. It is a public notice attached generally on the front window in a big letter. It says that the borrower is in default, not updated on the mortgage payments, and in the event of not being able to pay, the lender will get the house. The Notice of Default will make the lenders feel that their interests are protected, hence foreclosure can be avoided.

Reclaim What Is Ought To Be Yours

If there is something that institutions such as churches, communities and families would like to eliminate on their vocabulary, it would be I guess foreclosure. You may agree with me when I say that institutions are one with their campaign against banks for doing something that is beyond the knowledge of homeowners. Of course, everybody would like to stand on their right to know the status of their mortgage so they can be able to prepare themselves for the possible foreclosure.

There is an ongoing campaign to protect the homeowners and to help them keep the home they deserve. The campaign has been facilitated over the phone, text messages and social media networking to awaken everybody about the danger and struggles of foreclosure. Protection for the homeowners is the primary concern of such campaign.
