Foreclosures in Texas in 2012 occurred at the rate of one for every 213 houses, according to the Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University. RealtyTrac® reported over two million foreclosures nationwide for the same period, an average of one for every 72 houses. While the rate in Texas is more positive than it is in the nation, statistics mean little to someone who is facing foreclosure.
Difficult financial circumstances in the economic downturn caused many homeowners to forfeit their homes. Successful foreclosure defense require immediate action to preserve rights that are available to you as a homeowner.
Alternatives to Consider
An Arlington bankruptcy attorney may help you find alternatives to losing your home. Some options that other homeowners have considered include:
- loan modification
Each situation is unique, and yours may have special circumstances. In some cases, filing for bankruptcy can stop the foreclosure process. Loan modification changes some of the terms to make a loan easier to pay, and reinstatement is an outcome of catching up on back payments and fees.
