It Is a Shame When Foreclosure Takes a Home With Equity

If I could say one thing to people who are facing foreclosure that could make a difference, that one thing is call a real estate agent. You might not want to sell your home but you might not have any choice. At least if you sell the home, you will probably get paid for your equity. If you let the home go to foreclosure and ultimately a trustee's auction, you will receive nothing.

 

While, technically, if there is a profit at the auction, you're supposed to get the overage, but it doesn't happen that way. Plus, an agent can help you in ways you can't even begin to imagine. I just tracked down a seller who was in foreclosure last month and sold her home, put money into her pocket. But this lawyer from yesterday had a different outcome, and you will see why.
