What can I do to avoid foreclosure?

The prospect of foreclosure is daunting for Connecticut homeowners. However, if you’re unable to make mortgage payments that will be exactly what you’re faced with. Some homeowners are able to pursue alternatives, which can prevent a lengthy and often costly foreclosure process. Realtor.com explains 3 different ways to avoid foreclosure that might be available to you.

What is the HAFA program?

If your debt situation has gotten out of hand and you fear losing your Connecticut home to foreclosure, you may wish to consider the Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives program. As HomeOwnership.org explains, HAFA is a federal governmental program that gives you a foreclosure alternative if you wish to short sell your home or give a deed in lieu of foreclosure to your mortgage lender.

What is the HARP refinance program?

If you are a Connecticut homeowner facing financial difficulties, you may fear that you will be unable to stay current with your mortgage payments and therefore lose your home through foreclosure. Another problem you may face is that your home has lost value since you purchased it and is now worth less than your mortgage balance. If this is your situation, you may wish to check out the Home Affordable Refinance Program, popularly known as HARP.

This challenge is compounded if the need for understanding comes along with a stressful situation, such as a bank compelling a homeowner to satisfy debt agreements. Regardless of the situation, it could benefit mortgagees to know their options. Here is some information on the loss mitigation process, one such alternative to formal foreclosure.
