Facing Foreclosure to Save Your Credit
Sunday, October 28, 2007
You may be facing foreclosure for any number of reasons. You may have an adjustable-rate mortgage and your payment may now be too high for your income. Whatever the reason, stopping foreclosure is an important step to take now.
Some homeowners will do everything they can to keep their home, even if what they do adds to their problems. Some refinance several times, draining any equity they have each time and still can not make the mortgage payments. These homeowners would have been better off selling before refinancing multiple times. Some homeowners end up with double digit interest rates and a pre-payment penalty that hinders them from being able to sell fast if they need to.
Foreclosure will damage credit for years to come. If you are in the situation of being behind on your mortgage it may be best to sell now so that a foreclosure does not show up on your credit report.
