4 Ways a Foreclosure Will Impact You in Los Angeles

Denied 

Having a foreclosure in Los Angeles appear on your credit reports will cause you to be considered a bad risk. Bad credit often leads to credit applications being denied for credit cards, loans or mortgages. 

Once this appears in your credit history, it will affect your overall purchasing power.  Financial institutions that are willing to approve consumers with bad credit usually charge excessive interest and annual fees that those who enjoy good credit avoid. In Addition, it could possibly be a reason you are passed over for employment opportunities. 

Financial Loss

Among the top reasons for homeownership, your equity builds up over time as your debt decreases, and Los Angeles property values rise. Equity is the difference between what your property would bring in the current market, and the amount that is still owed on the mortgage.Your financial gains could be an amount in the hundreds of thousands. Foreclosure will impact your equity either partially or in full, depending on your circumstances which could be a significant financial loss. 

Debt

By taking quick steps to resolve a pending foreclosure, you can make the decisions on how your home is sold and for how much. Open your mail before it’s too late! Keep the lines of communication open so that you can be on top of what actions your lender may take and how much time to change the outcome in your favor. After a foreclosure you’ll have no such control. Should your Los Angeles property sell for less than is still due on your mortgage, you are still  required to pay your debts. A deficiency debt can have an enormous impact on your lifestyle and family, not to mention eating into your budget. Additional liability on your credit report will  increase the higher costs associated with having bad credit.

Future Housing 

In many ways, foreclosure affects your housing options. Generally, landlords run credit checks as the first step when interviewing tenants.  It is natural that your financial history will make a higher risk and may cause you to be passed over for more desirable properties. In addition, your choices in financing will be highly restricted when you wish to purchase another home. Should you have gone through foreclosure and seek a mortgage lender, Fannie Mae is among the largest in the nation and offers a program with several financial benefits. You should be aware that Fannie Mae will require a waiting period of 7 years before you will be eligible under their guidelines. Facing the possibilities of a Los Angeles foreclosure alone can be very stressful and inaction on your part risks your financial future. Don’t wait until foreclosure begins. Send us a message or give us a call today at (310) 658-8252. Let Mrs. Property Solutions help lessen your burdens today.
