A mortgage is a very exciting thing for a young couple or family. It means that they have purchased a home, with the help of a bank or lending institution. Foreclosure, however, is not a word you want to see linked with “mortgage”. A foreclosure mortgage takes place when you fail to make your monthly payments as promised and lose your home.
Many of you may not be real familiar with the actual steps involved in a mortgage or a foreclosure. You find a home, you borrow money from the bank and feel that’s all there is to the process. There are some details you need to be familiar with before you purchase your home, to avoid a possible foreclosure. Mortgage rates and a shaky economy have been responsible for more homes being foreclosed than ever before.
