I am not going to lie.  My home is not in pre foreclosure and I don’t know how it feels to have my home potentially foreclosed upon.  However, I do know from helping our Sellers who are facing foreclosure of their homes  how important information about their options is. 

I remember a professional in a different field once telling me “knowledge is power”.  I follow this statement with every Seller and/or Buyer I help. Especially for those facing foreclosure. 

Knowledge is Power is understanding all possible options to saving your home from foreclosure.  Sure, part of my business is built on helping Sellers sell their homes via a short sale process.  But, my business is also built on educating on our Sellers on options that may end up with us not listing a nd selling their homes, but being the best option for our Sellers.

Believe me, I have learned over the years that what goes around comes around.  That goes to my providing our Sellers with the possibility of requesting a “deed in lieu” of foreclosure. I may not end up making a commission, but I would want someone to provide me with all of my options that they are aware of if I were in the shoes of possibly losing my home and how that would affect my future.

Bottom line…you  may have heard of a “deed in lieu” but not understand what this really means for you.  Here is an article that I have found that may provide you with some of those answers in determining if this is an option for you to consider.
