Understanding Foreclosures

It seems like every other day, there is a new headline about foreclosures….and they sometimes seem to contradict one another. One headline may say foreclosures are on the rise, while another may say there has been a decrease in foreclosure numbers.

To help clarify this issue, let’s take a look at the different stages in the foreclosures process.

Delinquencies over 90 Days
Once a mortgage becomes 90 days past due, it is generally becomes part of a bank’s foreclosure numbers. The reason for this is that less than 2% of those who fall 90 days behind are able to catch up on their payments. The remaining 98% will end up as either a short sale or a foreclosure.

Homes actually in the Foreclosure Process
Once a foreclosure notice is received by the homeowner, the official foreclosure process has begun.
