When I say beware what I really mean to say is be prepared for what is about to happen when you are going to try to avoid foreclosure. If trying to avoid foreclosure entails a short sale, IT MEANS SELLING YOUR HOME.
This new epidemic I have seen 4 times in the last two months with new listings is that the homeowner haven’t wrapped their head around the idea of selling their home. The homeowners are waiting for the white knight to ride in and hand over a new set of keys to the house and everything will go away. I am not trying to be harsh, sinister, or rude but there is ONE WAY to wipe the slate clean with MINIMAL IMPACT and MAXIMUM CONTROL over this period of your life.
Sell your home. Your children took their first steps in that house, you’ve thrown holiday parties in the home, your neighbors are awesome. I understand!! I get it.!
But before you bought this home were you happy, you had other friends, and happy times still happened. That is 100% true. You were happy before and you will be happy again.
Americans survive, Americans adapt and overcome.
To put it another way, trying to sell your home and salvage credit to help your family for the future by completing a short sale ISN’T THE END OF THE WORLD… dying is the end of the world.. And as long as you can claim health and family then you are luckier than a lot of other people.
Always try your hardest to count your blessings because even if the darkest times there are things to be thankful for.
