No homeowner plans to go into pre foreclosure through default on their home loan repayments. Unfortunately many homeowners find themselves in this very situation each and every day. With worsening conditions in the economy more and more homeowners, especially those with the so called “jumbo loans” or those with variable rate ARM (adjustable rate mortgage) loans are particularly at risk for going into pre foreclosure. The good news is that there is a pre foreclosure solution that can work for many homeowners, but it does require being proactive and acknowledging the problem as soon as possible.
The first step for a homeowner to come to a pre foreclosure solution that will work for both themselves and the lender is to eliminate all other debt as quickly as possible. This may mean taking out a long-term fixed rate consolidation loan on all credit cards or car notes and other debts before falling behind on the house payment. Most homeowners simply ignore the warning signs of mounting debt, seeming to hope they can somehow borrow their way out.
