Bad things happen to good people!

by Team Cook

Losing your home to foreclosure due to an inability to keep up with your monthly mortgage payments is one of life's most unpleasant experiences. It is also an event that keeps on affecting you long after your home is history by devastating your credit score. Regrettably, most people cannot be 100% sure that they will remain safe from foreclosure because they can't foresee the unexpected. Occurrences such as serious illness, a major accident, divorce or job loss can happen to anyone. So it's a good idea to understand the available alternatives should the worst occur.

Of all available options, foreclosure is the worst.
The inevitable result of a foreclosure is the lender taking your house. Not only will you lose your house, but the lender can get a judgment against you for the arrearages you owe plus his costs for the foreclosure action. If that isn't enough, your credit report will be in terminal condition for many years to come, worsening an already bad financial situation and making it very difficult to obtain any other kind of credit. There is no upside to foreclosure. It should be avoided at all costs.

Consider a short sale when foreclosure seems inevitable
A short sale is a popular, NO COST, option for homeowners mired down with financial problems. In this case, you would sell your home for less than what you owe your lender; the biggest problem you will face is getting your lender to agree to a short sale. In many situations, they will not. Experts advise pursuing this option the minute you realize that you are falling behind in your payments and most likely won't be able to catch up. The longer you wait and the greater the amount you are in arrears, the less likely it becomes that your lender will even be willing to discuss a short sale.

At its best, a short sale can be a win-win for both parties. For the seller, a short sale provides the opportunity to avoid foreclosure and the dreaded implications that a foreclosure brings, in addition to being able to return to home ownership sooner; alternately, the lender receives most of the value of the loan sooner, and avoids incurring additional legal or carrying costs while the foreclosure process plays out, which can sometimes even take years. And, frankly, short sales are great options for savvy buyers.

Almost any option is better than foreclosure
Simply stated, do everything you can before foreclosure occurs and do it as quickly as humanly possible. Don't sit back and keep thinking, "What can I do?" Instead, consider that short sale before your options become more limited.

Team Cook you're my HERO'S!

by Randy Lindstrom

Team Cook you're my HERO'S! (Wish I would have listed with you 2 years earlier)

I had my house on the market for two years (5/07 - 4/09) listed with different agents of course! With the economy the way it is, I lost my job and had other family crisis's going on at the same time. I spoke with Kevin about a short sale. Best decision I have made in many years! I was able to concentrate on my family issues while they handled the sale of my home. One less concern for me. I would recommend this team to everyone. They are true professionals, their communication is superb. They kept me informed of the progress from the beginning to the end when it finally sold. And thank you Rose for staying on those mortgage companies.

One very happy client,

Randy Lindstrom
