Real Estate / Foreclosure / Prevention

Don't lose a home to Foreclosure before knowing certain remedies !

Sometimes in life trouble can't be avoided.  A foreclosure is often the case of years of bad events which eventually catch up.  Often a job loss, or injury, or a long term illness can effect a person or families finances and result in Foreclosure.

If you or a friend or family member are facing Foreclosure, please call me.  Even if it is a week or days before the home is to be sold at Foreclosure Auction, there are fixes.

Step 1   Stop the Foreclosure Proceeding using a Bankruptcy attorney
Step 2    Work on a manageable payment plan and consolidation or elimination of debt through the Bankruptcy Courts
Step 3    Look at Selling your home while in the Bankruptcy organization process
Or
Step 4    If possible, stay in your home



I refer clients to Attorney Pamela Stewart.  phone:  832-210-3084
Mrs. Stewart is a great bankruptcy attorney with experience with mortgages.  She can stop a foreclosure the day before auction.  Then you can come up with options regarding your home.

Don't let some investor get Rich scooping up your home at a Foreclosure auction.

When facing Foreclosure, call me or Mrs. Stewart.

Did you realize you can buy your Dream Home using a Reverse Mortgage ?  Must be 62 years old.

Buy your retirement home with only 40% to 50% down payment; and never have another mortgage payment ever again. 

How about this example:

She bought in 2000 for $98,000. 
We are going to list her home for sale at $450,000.  She is going to net close to $350,000 CASH.
She will Buy her country Dream Home for $300,000.  Her down payment $140,000
NO MORE MORTGAGE PAYMENTS using a Reverse Mortgage Purchase loan.
She will have $210,000 CASH in the bank and no mortgage payment.
WIN WIN
