33% of Homeowners Owe More Than Their Home Is Worth
“The owners of one-third of the houses in the Seattle metro area now owe more on their mortgages than their homes are worth, Zillow estimates.”*
(If you have a friend in the Seattle metro area experiencing this issue, would you please email them this link. I can help.)
Being in real estate and specializing in working with sellers that want to sell their homes, I come in contact with this reality every day.
If you purchased a home after 2004, this probably means you.
Many homeowners are now trapped in homes they can’t sell yet needing to lower their expenses or relocate to jobs elsewhere.
Also, many homeowners have been downsized with less earnings OR who have lost their jobs altogether. If they have savings, they have depleted those assets trying to keep up their mortgage payments. Ultimately, they run out of savings and still are tied to a home they can no longer afford.
What was once a blessing has now become a burden.
This is forcing many families into short sales, foreclosures, bankruptcy and destroying their credit rating.
If you’re concerned about your real estate situation, don’t hesitate to call or email. I can help. Don’t be ashamed or embarrassed. It is happening to millions of people.
I can quickly assess your situation and recommend many resources, even attorneys (bankruptcy and real estate) that may be in your best interest.
Like I said, don’t go into denial and waste precious time to take care of yourself and your family in the best way possible. I can help. I can quickly size up your real estate situation and suggest options for you. I have an abundance of affordable resources.
Before getting back into real estate seven years ago I was a counselor/life coach for 23 years. I am highly skilled at helping people find workable solutions for their lives—now for their ‘real estate’ related lives. <grins>
Besides being highly compassionate for your situation (we deal with it every day), I will keep your information confidential.
You will get through this situation and come out better for on the other-side. Just take one step at a time.
Once you’ve cleared away the debris you can start rebuilding your net worth and your credit rating. I can help here too. (There are some no-cost, truly reputable credit repair companies associated with real estate and homeownership.) You can and WILL rebuild your credit again.
