Empower You CDC Is Focused On Rebuilding Neighborhoods And Empowering Homeowners

 

Foreclosure Avoidance Options

Foreclosure is one of the most devastating financial challenges that a family can face and one that many times can be avoided. The options available to residents for foreclosure are many but many aren’t even aware of them. Banks don’t advertise them, and if the homeowners are not educated on their options they are unable to ask for the correct assistance.

 

Foreclosure Prevention Education

  • New Jersey is number one in the country for foreclosures.
    • 1 and 562 homes are in foreclosure.
    • Majority of the properties in foreclosure are upside down.
    • We do a comparative analysis to determine the value of property.
    • We work from home value to determine whether the homeowner can financially afford to keep the property.
      • If so, we have a few options:
        • Refer to a nonprofit agency who specializes in working with the lender and homeowner to purchase the home at market value from the lender and sell it back to the homeowner at market value.
        • Negotiate with the clients lender directly in order to have the lender approve the homeowner for a loan modification, a refinance, a short refinance, or any of the other option that are available and that they qualify for.
      • If not, we inform  homeowner of what their income can support and work with them to implement a plan to live affordably long-term.
