Tips for Avoiding Foreclosure

By: Paul Escobedo

Foreclosure is a big concern for not only the home owner, but for the nation too. Foreclosures in this country are hitting record numbers and continuing to increase every day. According to Irvine-based RealtyTrac Inc. there were a total of 224,451 foreclosure filings reported in October, up 94 percent from 115,568 in the same month a year ago. I have put together several tips to help you not become one of these statistics. I am not a foreclosure expert but from the research that I have done following these steps will keep you in your home and your home out of foreclosure.
Ã?â‚??Don't ignore the problem
Ã?â‚??Contact your lender as soon as you realize that you have a problem
Ã?â‚??Open and respond to all mail from your lender
Ã?â‚??Know your mortgage rights
Ã?â‚??Understand foreclosure prevention options
Ã?â‚??Contact a housing counselor
Ã?â‚??Prioritize your spending
Ã?â‚??Use your assets
Ã?â‚??Avoid foreclosure prevention companies
Ã?â‚??Don't lose your house to foreclosure recovery scams
If you follow these steps you should be in the clear from losing your house.

At least this way you can be better prepared if you run into any problems. You need to know that your lender doesn't want your home so they should be willing to do all they can to work with you. They would rather keep you in your house and making payments. People usually get overwhelmed with stress just make sure to try and stay on top of everything.
