Although getting notice that your home is in pre foreclosure is very difficult both emotionally and financially for anyone, there are some options that homeowners in difficulty may be able to use. One such option could be one of the many pre foreclosure loans offered through various banks and lenders. Since banks and mortgage companies really don’t want to be stuck with foreclosed homes, pre foreclosure loans makes sense for the lender, plus it can be an effective option for the homeowner as well.
Not all homeowners will be eligible for pre foreclosure loans. From a lenders perspective the homeowner or borrower is only a good investment if he or she has a job and can reasonably afford the loan payment. The good news is that most pre foreclosure loans are fixed rate over 30 to 40 years, which means that even through they are slightly higher in interest rate than a conventional home loan they are stretched out over a much longer period, decreasing the actual monthly cost to the borrower for repayment. Of course this means that the borrower is paying a significantly higher amount in interest over time but early repayment may also be an option.
