If you are facing foreclosure, communicate with your lender right away. There may be options available to assist you with your mortgage challenges. Many mortgage lenders offer loan modification programs, where monthly payments can be adjusted.
If you cannot or don’t want to stay in your home there are still options for you. If there is equity in your home, you may be able to sell the property. Or, if you you owe more than the home is worth, consider a short sale. Another option is to offer your deed in lieu of foreclosure, this may help with your primary mortgage and avoid a foreclosure sale.
