What is a Pre-Foreclosure

Many people are going through foreclosure right at this very moment. It is very important for buyers, and mortgage holders to understand the process.

So what is a pre-foreclosure?

A number of people around Los Angeles are having trouble making their monthly mortgage payments. When a homeowner missed the mortgage payments for 3-6 months, the lending people will send out a warning. They will notify the owner to either pay or if not, they could lose their home. This is what we call a pre-foreclosure.

Lenders or financial institution gives 3 months for you to settle your balance or become current. The time frame may vary from one bank to another. If the property owner still has not made the necessary payments, then the house will be foreclosed. The bank will assume ownership and they will evict the homeowner. The good news is, the mortgage holder still has an opportunity to take a several options just to avoid losing their homes.

Pre-foreclosure Options for Borrowers

You are likely to receive a letter called “notice of default” from your lenders. It will state that you haven’t made your mortgage payment for the last 90 to 180 days. It may sound alarming but it is very crucial that you don’t panic.

You have another option that can either delay or prevent losing your home.

You can contact your bank and ask if they can permit a short sale. What is a short sale? You will be able to sell your home fast for less than what its worth and the bank will take the loss as a tax write-off. Some short sales require you to pay the difference to the bank if you don’t sell for what is owed on the loan.

You can declare bankruptcy. It can buy you time to pay off your debt. however, bankruptcy will remain on your credit report for years and it can also cause a huge damage to it.

Lenders are aware of financial troubles across the country. If you’re thinking that they want to get the property from you. You are completely wrong. They’d rather you stay and keep it so that they can still collect the money you owe on the property.

a foreclosure can greatly impact your credit score. It can deduct about 200-400 points which is a big deal. It will prevent you from getting a loan of any sorts for about 5-7 years. So you need to act fast and smart once you received a notice of foreclosure from your lender.
