COVID-19 and Foreclosures
It's always been true that one of the leading causes of foreclosure is getting sick. Another leading cause is losing one's job.
Combining a pandemic with an economic shutdown can cause massive strain on a family's financial position. And adding the fear of losing your house to foreclosure in the midst of all of it might just be too much.
To help, Fannie Mae has made changes in how foreclosures are being handled: They're being paused for 60 days. We're not completely sure what the economy will be like in 60 days (for the country or for any individual household), but this can at least give some temporary assurance that people aren't going to be kicked out of their homes.
This doesn't mean that you don't have to pay the mortgage eventually, or that if you're on the path to foreclosure during those 60 days that foreclosure proceedings won't pick back up.
If you think you're on the path to being foreclosed, PLEASE contact Green Light Real Estate. There may be things that can be done to help. Maybe your house is worth more than you think. Maybe there is a buyer who could move quickly with the price you need. Maybe your house is a good candidate for a short sale. We help people in situations like this all the time. You just have to ASK. And, maybe there isn't anything that can be done. Maybe the house is going to be foreclosed on. But you'll at least have done everything you could.

We're getting through this together.
