As a member of the National Association of REALTORS, I have access to a lot of helpful information on trends, current events and programs for foreclosure prevention and guidance.
Several of these tools are available to the public, as well. If you are investigating your options in a foreclosure situation, please make sure that you are reading reputable information and speaking with reputable people. It is a sad by product of these times that many seedy people and underhanded companies have cropped up offering loan modification and foreclosure assistance. You must take great care before working with any of them as it could potentially cost you a lot of money, money I would safely presume that you do not have to spend in these difficult times.
First and foremost, your trusted area REALTOR who has extensive experience not only in your marketplace but specifically with short sales and foreclosures is to be leaned upon as a trusted resource. It is our commitment to assist those in need of help during these hard times and for many of us, a source of pride that we are able to, in some small way, give people some much needed help, support and guidance through a very stressful time.
Secondly, use the resources that the National Association of REALTORS makes available to you. This information is factual, trustworthy and helpful. Following the guidance in these materials can make all the difference in the world to a home owner in distress.
The Houselogic page, brought to you by NAR, is a wonderful resource full of information. Here you can learn what to do when you can’t continue making payments on your home, how foreclosure will impact your credit score, how you can help others and who can help you.
