Avoid Losing Your Home. Two Simple Foreclosure Solutions.

By: Seanroberts
Due to default on your payments, if your lender, bank or mortgage company is looking to take your home through foreclosure, you should be looking for solutions to prevent this from happening. Here in this article, we are going to look at two simple things you can do to stop the proceedings and save your home from foreclosure.

You Can Live With These Two Simple Solutions

There are several things you can do to stop the bank from foreclosing on your home, but most foreclosure solutions involve one simple step - talk to the bank. More than likely it is not in the bank's best interest to foreclose on your home and they will probably be more than willing to help you with finding different foreclosure solutions so that you can keep your house and they can keep receiving their payments.

The first option is to refinance your home mortgage. Some banks will offer you a chance to refinance your home at a lower rate, effectively reducing your payments. This may help some people get their budget under control in addition to getting the bank off their back. A refinanced loan is a new loan that will start payments over again. You can 'roll' any late payments into the refinance amount so that you now become current on your home loan.

In addition to starting fresh again and on good terms with your lender, if you are able to get a lower interest rate, your payments likely will go down. That is even presuming you keep the same loan term you had originally. If you had the option of a longer term, then your payments could be even less, although there are reasons a longer term is not a good idea. While the lower monthly mortgage payments appear to be great, less of your payment is going toward equity and more is going toward interest which could prove to be detrimental to you in the long run. However, if the bank is on your back, either option is one of the foreclosure solutions that can help you get back on track financially.

Another choice, and far less appealing option in most cases, is to sell your home. For the most part this can be very difficult as it will put a lot of pressure on you, your family and the bank as well. The bank will become very leery of you if it looks like you are trying to bail out on the loan. Additionally, there are many fees associated with selling a home so the actual sales price will not be the amount of money you receive.

In the final analysis, the best foreclosure solutions are simple ones that keep you in your home and paying on your current loan. If you have fallen behind in your mortgage payments and looking at a possible foreclosure, finding a way to get caught up and back on good financial ground is the better option. You may even consider taking a second job temporarily or working from home in your spare time to keep you ahead of the game for now while you work on and finalize your other options.
