How to Avoid Getting Your House Foreclosed On

 

Don’t give up, there is still hope

You’ve worked so hard to buy your home, and it is one of your biggest investments. You are proud of it, and it is a source of comfort and peace for you. But if you fall on hard times, and you are unable to keep up with your monthly mortgage payments, you may lose your home to foreclosure.

Before such a drastic thing happens, what can you do to avoid foreclosure?

If you are at the end of your rope financially, don’t give up. Consider your other options. Just think of how much more difficult it will be to get a new home when you credit rating is affected. It will definitely be affected if you let your lender foreclose your home.

Foreclosure alternatives

If your monthly mortgages are piling up, here are some options for you to choose from:

  • Consider a short sale.  A foreclosure is a big deal to lenders because they will lose money, so when you are unable to make payments, the lender usually takes it to court. And if you happen to have a second mortgage or other loans secured by the home, you stand the chance of not just losing your home but your money as well.

When there is no way for you come up with the monthly mortgage, a short sale is a better option. Doing a short sale is beneficial for both you and the lender, and a far better alternative than foreclosure.  

A short sale is when you sell the home for less than the outstanding mortgage on it, with the signed approval of the lender of course.  In a short sale, your REALTOR® will work with the mortgage lender to get a deficiency waiver so that the balance can be forgiven. Your REALTOR® will also work with any  other lenders so that their lien or claim can be removed.

One advantage of short sale over foreclosure is there will be no foreclosure stigma attached to your credit rating. Foreclosures appear on your credit report for seven years, and make it difficult to buy a new home, even if you have saved enough for a down payment and have already gotten a good job.

A short sale also appears on your credit record and lowers your credit score, but you will have get a shorter waiting period before you quality for a Fannie Mae or Fred Mac loan.

Another advantage of short sale is it allows a fresh start. With a foreclosure, only your mortgage payments are taken care of, but with a short sale, all your debts are negotiated by the real estate agent. The selling process will proceed like a normal real estate transaction, so if you chose not to tell your neighbors, they won’t even know the real reason why you’re selling your home.

  • Talk to your lender about a loan modification. When you realize you are behind on your payments and you are not able to come up with a full amount to cover the outstanding monthly mortgage, you need to call your lender.  Most lenders would rather negotiate a compromise which will help you catch up with your payments rather than foreclose on your home. A loan modification can give you a more affordable monthly  mortgage payment, it’s less damaging to your credit rating, and best of all, lets you keep your home.
  • Seek assistance from the government. There are several government programs to help you refinance your loan.  You might consider getting help from the Making Home Affordable (MHA), or the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP).  These programs seek to provide qualified homeowners a chance to reduce their monthly mortgage payment to a more affordable price.
  • Opt for a mortgage forbearance agreement.  If you are having difficulty with your monthly payments because of a temporary issue like unemployment or health problems, another good option is talking to your lender about a forbearance agreement.

A mortgage forbearance agreement is a temporary solution for borrowers.  In this agreement, the lender agrees to reduce or suspend payments for a specific time frame, and not to initiate foreclosure. You as the borrower, promise to pay an additional amount to cover the monthly mortgage, including the principal, interest, taxes and insurance, once the agreed upon time period has elapsed.

Don’t allow your hard work to go to the lender. There are many ways you can avoid getting your home foreclosed on.

What Is A HUD Home and Can I Buy One?

HUD homes – the backstory

You may have heard that HUD homes are a good deal if you are looking to buy a home. But what is HUD housing and why is it available at such a bargain cost?

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) defines a “HUD home” as “a 1 to 4 unit residential property acquired by HUD as a result of a foreclosure action on an FHA-insured mortgage”.

HUD becomes the property owner and offers it for sale to recover the loss on the foreclosure claim. In other words, it’s a property bought using an FHA-insured loan, didn’t meet the monthly mortgage, ended up in foreclosure, bought back by HUD, who is now selling it. That’s how it became a HUD home.

As to why it is available at a lower cost than other homes for sale in Charlotte, it is because the possible cost of repairs is reflected from the price.

HUD wants to sell these homes as soon as possible. To sweeten the deal, they even offer benefits and incentives for the buyers.

The Incentives of HUD Homes

One such incentive is “The Good Neighbor Next Door Program” which seeks to “encourage renewal of revitalization areas by providing an opportunity for law enforcement officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians and teachers to purchase homes in these communities…in the form of 50% discount off the list of eligible properties”.

If you happen be a community worker mentioned on the list, you are entitled to 50% off on top of the already low-priced home! Imagine the money you’ll be able to save from that!

If the foreclosed homes are not sold within six months, HUD has another special offer. The agency may sell them for $1 each to local governments to  “foster housing opportunities for low to moderate income families and address specific community needs”.

How can you buy one?

For the list of available HUD real estate owned (REO) single-family properties, you can visit the HUD Home Store. This site offers the public, brokers, potential owner-occupants, state and local governments and nonprofit organizations a centralized location where they can search for HUD properties for sale.

It is also the site where registered real estate brokers and other organizations can send bids on behalf of their clients who want to purchase a HUD property.

When you’ve found a Charlotte home you like, contact a HUD-approved real estate broker who can setup a showing for you to visit the home. Unlike the process of buying regular homes, you have to place bids through your agent, and there is a time period where bids are accepted. When that bidding period is over, HUD checks all the bids and accepts the best bid where their agency can get the highest net.

HUD homes are sold as is. If the home you like requires repairs, you will be the one responsible for it. Which is why HUD encourages interested home buyers to get a home inspection before submitting an offer for the home.

I can help you find new homes for sale in Charlotte NC and new Charlotte rental properties and help you pick the property that best suits your budget and preferences.

🏠What Are the Steps to Getting Your Charlotte NC Home Sale-Ready

Homes for sale in Charlotte NC

Are you getting geared up to put your Charlotte NC home on the market?

As a seller, it's your responsibility to ensure that your home is going to show well to potential buyers who are looking for homes for sale in Charlotte NC. Each new visitor is a "first-date" for your house, so you'll want to do everything you can to make sure it's looking its best. You want the buyers who walk in through your doors to be impressed, and for someone to make an offer as soon as possible.

Make sure to set yourself apart from the competition. Remember that the effort and money you'll spend on getting your house ready will affect your chances of securing a successful sale.

There are many things you can do to increase the odds of selling your Charlotte NC home fast and for your full asking price. You can start with these simple steps.

1. Think about First Impressions

The most important aspect of a home showing is the buyer's first impression. However, buyers don't form their first impression of your home when they walk through your door. It happens when they look at the photographs on your online listings.

When looking for a home online, buyers like to see what the home looks like. Without photos, it will be hard for them to determine if it's a home worth considering. Make sure your online photos show your home in its best light.

2. Declutter and depersonalize

This is a task home sellers should never ignore. Get rid of any clutter and personal touches, like many portraits. When people walk into a home that's for sale, they want to be able to picture themselves in it, not the previous owners. Your goal is to create a welcoming, neutral home for every potential buyer.  It' s a simple step that will have a major impact on how your house shows.

3. Stage the house

Home staging can help make your home attractive to buyers. It is also an essential part of marketing a property for sale.

You can either do this yourself or hire one of the staging companies in your area. A professional home stager will have expertise in planning and choosing furniture and accessories, and arranging them in a way that shows off your home to its best advantage so that it sells quickly for maximum profit.

4. Make small repairs

Nothing good comes out of telling an interested buyer. oh, we've been meaning to do that, but we never got round to it. So before you put your home on the market, make all the small repairs you've been putting off.

Your home should be finely tuned before you put it on the market if you want it to attract more buyers and sell for top dollar. Remember, there are several new homes for sale in Charlotte NC so your goal is to rise above the competition.

Preparing a home for sale can be a lot easier with the help of the top real estate agent in Charlotte NC!

North Carolina Is Now Ranked The 8th Most Moved-To State In America

So why are people moving? And where are they going?
Here’s what they have to say:

“This year’s data reflects longer-term trends of movement to the western and southern states, especially to those where housing costs are relatively lower, climates are more temperate and job growth has been at or above the national average, among other factors,” said Michael Stoll, economist and professor in the Department of Public Policy at the University of California, Los Angeles. “We’re also seeing continued migration to the Pacific Northwest and Mountain West as young professionals and retirees leave California.”
