Many things can lead to foreclosure. In an attempt to save their home, people will often deplete resources such as savings or retirement accounts, which can lead to a financial spiral that may result in housing loss.
The battle to save your home starts with knowing your rights, educating yourself on your options, and mounting a legal defense where appropriate. If home loss is unavoidable, understanding what comes next is a critical component in housing transition.
SAFELY HOME wants to help if you are struggling to pay your mortgage, have questions about the foreclosure process, or are presently facing foreclosure.
