Top 3 ways to Avoid Foreclosure Dallas
- Loan Modification- You may be able to negotiate a home loan modification with your mortgage company which will allow you to refinance your loan or extend the term of your mortgage. Be careful! It can take a few months before you know if you’ve been approved. Typically, you won’t make any payments during this time period. If you are denied a loan modification, your mortgage company may demand that you catch up on your loan payments in full or face an expedited foreclosure.
- Short sale- If you are denied a loan modification or if you’ve defaulted on your modified loan, your next option to avoid foreclosure Dallas is to pursue a possible short sale. Shortsales are possible if you owe more than your home’s current value. Your bank may allow you to sell your house for less than your mortgage balance. While a shortsale will have a negative effect on your credit, it reflects more positively than a foreclosure.
- Sell Your House “Subject To”- If your bank denies a short sale on your home and you don’t have enough equity to sell your house for more than what you owe, you have the option to sell your house to a real estate investor “Subject To the Existing Mortgage”. When an investor buys “Subject To”, they will pay the total amount in arrears including late fees and begin to take over payments. While you won’t be able to stay in your house, you will have the benefit of improved credit as the investor continues to make regular mortgage payments.
