No more Foreclosures

Understanding the foreclosure process and your options is crucial when facing financial difficulties with your mortgage payments. Here's a breakdown of the process and some potential solutions:

Foreclosure Process in Utah: (we buy any houses or multi family)

  1. Notice of Default (NOD): In Utah, foreclosure proceedings typically begin after you've missed three mortgage payments. The mortgage company must wait until you are 90 days late before recording a Notice of Default (NOD) at the County Recorder’s Office. This is a public record, and you will also receive certified mail notifying you of the NOD.

  2. Cure Period: After the NOD is recorded, you have at least 90 days to cure your default before a foreclosure sale date can be set. During this time, you can explore options to resolve the default and keep your home.

  3. Foreclosure Sale: If the default is not cured, the mortgage company will proceed with setting a foreclosure sale date. You will receive notice of the pending foreclosure sale, typically at least three weeks in advance. If the property is sold at auction, you will no longer own your home.

Options to Avoid Foreclosure:

  1. Loan Modification: A loan modification involves restructuring your mortgage terms to make payments more manageable. This could include extending the loan term, reducing the interest rate, or adding missed payments to the loan balance.

  2. Forbearance: Forbearance allows you to temporarily pause or reduce your mortgage payments. However, the missed payments will need to be repaid eventually, either as a lump sum or through a repayment plan.

  3. Sell Your Home: If keeping up with mortgage payments is no longer feasible, selling your home before foreclosure can help you avoid the negative consequences of foreclosure. You may be able to sell your home quickly to a cash buyer or explore options such as short sales or deed in lieu of foreclosure.

Navigating foreclosure can be overwhelming, but understanding your options and taking proactive steps can help you find a solution that works for your situation. It's essential to communicate with your mortgage company and explore available resources for assistance.

Keep My House in Foreclosure: (we buy any houses or multi family)

  1. Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: Filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy can provide a structured plan to repay your debts, including past due mortgage payments, over a period of time. This can help you keep your home while catching up on missed payments.

  2. Loan Modification or Forbearance: Working with your mortgage lender to modify your loan terms or enter into a forbearance agreement can make your payments more manageable and help you avoid foreclosure.

  3. Work with an Investor: Investors can offer flexible solutions tailored to your situation, such as equity loans, reducing your payment, or even renting the property back to you. This option can provide relief if bankruptcy or loan modification is not feasible.

Sell My House in Foreclosure:

  1. Listing with a Real Estate Agent: While listing your home with an agent may yield the highest sale price, it can also be time-consuming and require you to make repairs and move out before closing.

  2. Selling to an Investor: Selling your house to an investor offers the advantage of a fair cash offer for your home in its current condition, regardless of where you are in the foreclosure process. This option allows for a fast sale, with no rush to move out, and may include options to rent or buy back the home.

Foreclosure and Bankruptcies

It's crucial to understand the implications of foreclosure and bankruptcy and how they can work together in certain situations. While we offer our insights based on experience, it's always advisable to consult with a qualified attorney for legal advice tailored to your specific circumstances. Here's an overview of how foreclosure and bankruptcies may intersect: (we buy any houses or multi family)

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy:

  • In a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, most of your debts are discharged, but you may have to liquidate non-exempt assets to pay creditors.

  • The homestead exemption allows you to keep a portion of the equity in your home, up to a certain amount determined by law.

  • Chapter 7 may be a viable option to keep your home if the equity value is lower than the exemption amount and you can catch up on missed payments.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy:

  • Chapter 13 bankruptcy is commonly used by homeowners to stop foreclosure and keep their homes.

  • Missed mortgage payments can be included in a repayment plan spread out over several years, allowing you to catch up on arrears.

  • The court reviews your financial situation, including income, assets, and debts, to determine a feasible payment plan.

  • It's essential to make all payments on time during a Chapter 13 bankruptcy to avoid further foreclosure proceedings. Late payments may lead to the mortgage company seeking a "relief of stay" and restarting the foreclosure process.

  • Selling your home while in Chapter 13 bankruptcy requires court approval, which can take several weeks. It's crucial to allow enough time for the sale process to avoid a foreclosure auction.

Navigating bankruptcy and foreclosure can be complex, and timing is critical. Consulting with a bankruptcy attorney can help you understand your options and develop a strategy to protect your home and financial interests effectively.

Equity Loans

Equity loans can be a valuable financial tool for homeowners looking to access funds based on the equity in their homes. Here's a closer look at how equity loans work and some considerations to keep in mind: (we buy any houses or multi family)

What is an Equity Loan?

  • An equity loan, also known as a home equity loan or a second mortgage, allows homeowners to borrow against the equity they've built up in their homes.

  • Equity is the difference between the current market value of the home and the remaining balance on the mortgage.

  • These loans are typically secured by the property itself, making them less risky for lenders and potentially offering lower interest rates compared to unsecured loans.

Types of Equity Loans:

  1. Traditional Bank or Credit Union Loans: These loans are offered by traditional financial institutions and typically have fixed interest rates and terms. Borrowers may need to have a good credit score and stable income to qualify.

  2. Hard Money Loans: Hard money lenders may offer loans based primarily on the equity in the home, with less emphasis on credit scores and income verification. These loans often have shorter terms (1 to 2 years) and higher interest rates to offset the increased risk for the lender.


  • Interest Rates: Traditional equity loans from banks or credit unions may offer more competitive interest rates compared to hard money loans. However, borrowers should be prepared for potentially higher rates than first mortgages due to the increased risk associated with second mortgages.

  • Loan Terms: Equity loans typically have fixed terms, meaning borrowers repay the loan over a set period of time with regular monthly payments.

  • Repayment Ability: Before taking out an equity loan, borrowers should carefully consider their ability to afford the higher payments. Defaulting on an equity loan can result in foreclosure, as the home is used as collateral.

  • Use of Funds: Equity loans can be used for a variety of purposes, such as home improvements, debt consolidation, or major expenses. Borrowers should have a clear plan for how they will use the funds and ensure they are investing in assets that will appreciate in value.

Conclusion: Equity loans can provide homeowners with access to funds based on the equity in their homes, offering flexibility and potential tax benefits. However, borrowers should carefully consider the terms, interest rates, and their ability to repay the loan before proceeding. Consulting with a financial advisor can help borrowers make informed decisions and ensure they understand the implications of taking out an equity loan.
