You did your best to avoid the predicament, but there’s no denying it: you’re facing foreclosure. Though no one ever plans on getting into this situation, it’s not an uncommon challenge for homeowners today.

Findings indicate that there were 424,800 foreclosure filings on U.S. properties through the first half of 2017. And though that’s a 20 percent decrease from the prior year, some areas actually saw growth in foreclosure rates. In fact, in one report, 28 of the 217 metropolitan areas surveyed saw increased rates.

Even though the problem is decreasing on a national scale, there are still many homeowners facing this difficult scenario. That’s why it’s always a good idea for homeowners to maintain an understanding of the foreclosure market and what alternatives are available in case they find themselves in a tight spot.

Short sales have become a popular solution for homeowners looking to exit their property gracefully and protect their credit as much as possible.
