These days more homeowners are facing a tough decision about whether foreclosing is the only option they have left. Deciding to foreclose on your home will have implications on your family and your credit for the rest of your life. When a homeowner can no longer make payments to a lender for a home, the lender may repossess a home in the process of foreclosure, usually with the purpose of reselling it, to recover the amount owed on the defaulted home. Homeowners facing foreclosure proceedings will face lasting implications.
1) Your credit scores will be significantly lowered, sometimes by more than 300 points. This is the single most devastating mark on your credit report and will affect all of your future credit possibilities.
2) A foreclosure listed on a credit report is nearly impossible to have repaired and will most likely remain a permanent mark on this valuable personal report.
3) Your security clearance may have a direct effect from a foreclosure.
4) In order to recuperate money they did not receive during a bank sale of the property, a lender may seek a deficiency judgment against you to obtain the balance.
5) Your family will have to relocate.This is always a disturbance for children, marriages, careers, and other important aspects of your life.
