Find information below that may help you with your mortgage problems.
Facing the threat of home foreclosure and mortgage payments you can not afford is a hard situation for any family. Not everyone deals with it the same. Losing your home can cause other parts of your life and finances to spiral out of control. According to recent reports just over 600,000 default notices, scheduled auctions and bank repossessions were reported during the third quarter of 2011.
Not included in this number are the thousands of homeowners struggling to make payments each month and fighting to pay a mortgage they can no longer afford. This is very common due to loss of income or an adjustable rate mortgage that has recast and sent payments skyrocketing. By educating yourself and taking advantage of available programs you may put you and your family in a better financial position.
Tip of the Day: Don't sign anything you don't understand.
