The reasons that homes end up in foreclosure are many. Many Ft Myers FL homes were purchased under economic assumptions that no longer apply. While I understand the causes I also see the devastating affects that Foreclosure has on a person’s ability to build a new and better future. I am no attorney but I will offer some observations in the hope that it can help prevent unnecessary hardship. Most people who realize they can no longer afford to pay their mortgage just quit. This begins a process which snowballs and eventually becomes too large to fix and leads to eviction and financial ruin.
What I recommend is seeking out professional assistance as soon as the problem is recognized or maybe more accurately anticipated. Here are the first questions you will have to answer.
- Can the house be sold for enough to pay off what you owe on it?
- Do you have the means to solve this situation on your own? Do you have money sitting in a bank account or equity in another property that you can use to catch up or pay off the mortgage?
- Do you insist on staying in the home even if a solution is found?
If you the answer to any of these questions is yes then you need to implement a plan to resolve the problem according to your means. If on the other hand you answer no, then do not delay. Call us or another professional immediately. Many agents try to manage this process on their own and quite frankly transactions often fail as a result.
