Foreclosure Options

Foreclosure Options

Personal Loans: A Quick Fix with Pros and Cons

Personal loans can provide fast access to funds, but they’re not without drawbacks:


  • Quick access to cash
  • Potentially lower interest rates than credit cards
  • Fixed repayment terms
  • Can help preserve your credit score by avoiding foreclosure


  • Additional debt to manage
  • May have higher interest rates than mortgages
  • Risk of losing personal assets if using a secured loan
  • Not a long-term solution for chronic financial issues

Loan Modification: Racing Against the Clock

Time is crucial when pursuing a loan modification:

  • Start at least 37 days before the auction date
  • Prove monthly income of at least twice your mortgage payment
  • Ensure all taxes are current
  • Limited to two modification attempts per year
  • Provide a compelling “hardship letter”

FHA Partial Claim: A Hidden Gem

For those with FHA or HUD-insured mortgages originated before 2009:

  • Applicable if you’re more than 4 months behind
  • Must demonstrate ability to make future payments
  • Allows arrears to be added as a second mortgage

State-Sponsored Programs: Your Local Lifeline

Don’t overlook state-specific assistance programs:

  • Tailored solutions for your area
  • Potentially more favorable terms than national programs

Bankruptcy: A Double-Edged Sword

While bankruptcy can buy time, it comes with significant drawbacks:

  • Doesn’t stop foreclosure, only extends the process
  • Accrues additional legal fees and interest
  • Should be considered a last resort

Refinancing: For Those in Good Standing

If your credit is solid and your home is in good condition:

  • Requires a good credit score
  • Home must be in financeable condition

Bridge Loans and Hard Money: Quick But Costly

For homeowners with some cash reserves:

  • Fast access to funds
  • High interest rates (18% or more)
  • Risk of quick foreclosure if payments are missed

“Caution: Miss one payment on a hard money loan, and you could lose your house faster than you can say ‘foreclosure’!”

Short Sale: When Equity is Low

If you’re underwater on your mortgage:

  • Typically results in no money for the homeowner
  • Possible relocation funds (up to $10,000, average $2,500)
  • Subject to bank approval
