Stopping a home foreclosure could be very stressful for any property owner. While it is mainly a financial issue, it takes a toll on the mental and emotional health of the whole household, given the distress it could bring about. Fortunately, there are ways to stop an ongoing foreclosure and keep the bank from taking one’s home.

Property owners are faced with several options when it comes to avoiding an imminent foreclosure. These include paying for all the missed mortgage payments in one lumped payment to stop foreclosure. By catching on to the missed mortgage payments, the mortgage can be reinstated. The challenge here is finding enough money to settle a lump sum payment. Not every property owner can have this opportunity though. 

Sell property fast

Another good option is to sell your house fast and get out. This is the most feasible option since it allows the property owner to salvage whatever past mortgage payments he may have made so that he could at least have a bit of funds to start his life again elsewhere. 

The downside of this option is that homes do not sell fast easily. Selling the traditional way could mean having to wait for a couple of months to receive the payment. Unfortunately, the bank may not provide such leeway for the lender. Fortunately, there are legitimate real estate investors that offer to quickly buy a property and settle the amount in cash within two weeks or so.

How to quickly sell a house

The homeowner can get in touch with a legitimate real estate investor in their area, and ask how much they are willing to pay for his property. Usually, these companies make an offer the same day based on their market data in the given property location. The good thing about dealing with ugly property investors is that the property owner gets to eliminate the middleman in the transaction. This means the transaction is done quickly and directly and the property owner does not need to pay for agent commission. Moreover, investors offer to buy a property regardless of its condition so costly repairs are not needed. They also are more than willing to buy even those that are due for foreclosure.
