Millions of homeowner are currently in danger of losing their homes.Why? Because of foreclosure.Due to the high unemployment rate, poor job outlook, rising fuel and food costs, many homeowners just can't afford their homes anymore. If you find yourself in this situation, you may be unsure as to what you should do.

One of the most common questions asked by those facing foreclosure is when you should just accept your fate.In all honesty, this is a step that most homeowners are advised against taking.

Before deciding to give up on your home and move, it is important to know and familiarize yourself with your options.First, know that there is help for you.This help can come from an attorney specializing in real estate or foreclosures, a HUD approved housing counselor, or even your financial lender.

If you are a homeowner, foreclosure should not come as a surprise to you. You will receive numerous phone calls and letters from your financial lender, even before the foreclosure process begins. If you intend to act, now is the time to do so.

If you are faced with only temporary financial hardships, such as an injury that will keep you out of work for three months, speak to your lender. They may be willing to workout a temporary payment plan with you. This plan may result in short-term lower payments.Remember, the sooner you act, the better your chances are.Lenders are less likely to work with you when you already owe them a large amount of money.

As it was previously stated, you may want to seek help from an attorney that specializes in foreclosures.Many are familiar with steps that you can take to stop your bank from foreclosing on your property.One of those steps may involve declaring bankruptcy. In some states, this is enough to cause a bank to hold off on the process of foreclosure. Also, an experienced lawyer may make it so that your home cannot be touched during bankruptcy.

Regardless of which action you decide to take, you should do so with the assistance of a trusted professional. However, it is important to make sure that you seek that assistance in a timely matter.For example, in some states foreclosure proceedings cannot be stopped once they have started.That is why as soon as you notice financial problems or receive an intent to file foreclosure notice from your lender, you need to act and fast.

Once the foreclosure proceedings have started, like when you see your property listed for sale online or in the newspaper under foreclosure auctions, you may need to start accepting your fate. Many of your friends and family members will encourage you to stay and fight, but you may suffer legal consequences for doing so. Banks and new property owners can legally have you evicted from your home and you will need to move.

This is also the point in time when many homeowners are thinking of ways to stay in their home. Renters are encouraged to speak to the new property owner to see if they can continue renting and living in the rental unit. This approach often works for renters, but it is unlikely to work for you. If your home is a single-family home, it will likely be lived in, not used as a rental property. Although you can ask or even beg to stay in the home, you may want to start getting your belongings and finances in order.

Rental apartments usually require security deposits. Make sure you can afford this required deposit.Look into other fees and expenses, such as the cost of renting a moving van.

Start looking for affordable apartments or make arrangement with friends or family members right away. If you are not prepared or choose to ignore your eviction notice, you may, literarily, find yourself out on the street, if not in jail.
