Break Free From Unaffordable Mortgage Payments!

Break Free From Unaffordable Mortgage Payments!

A recent study in Nevada (a state that holds the nation’s highest foreclosure rate), found that only 5% of distressed homeowners knew they had alternatives to foreclosure, and only 3% took advantage of them. It was also found the 1 in 4 homeowners chose to “strategically default,” or allow their homes to be foreclosed upon on purpose!

The Realtors Association of York and Adams County (RAYAC) and the local Multiple List Service report for York County that there are currently 3236 (Active) properties on the market as of May 24th, 2011.  There are 371 Short Sales included in that total, and there have been 276 Bank Owned Properties that have closed or are pending settlement and 260 properties have sold since January 1st. These numbers represent 536 total distressed properties or 27% of the properties sold.

Clearly, too few distressed homeowners know their options and the fallout of foreclosure. If they did, they’d soon realize that there’s nothing ‘strategic’ about foreclosure, and that avoiding foreclosure is always the best plan to create financial stability.

Millions of Americans feel alone and trapped by mortgage payments they can no longer afford. In fact, 27% of Americans with mortgages now owe more than what their home is worth. However, more and more of them are finding education on the responsible alternatives to foreclosure is helping them move toward financial stability.

Education is key. The more distressed homeowners know about solutions, the more likely they are to overcome their financial challenges. I’ve seen this firsthand.

I can help with the education part—it’s up to you to contact me!
