What is Foreclosure?

The worst way to lose a house is through foreclosure.

If you fall behind in your mortgage payments, a foreclosure is the procedure by which the lender forces the sale of your property so it can be repaid for the debt you owe. The foreclosure process moves very quickly in Texas and can happen in as little as six months following your first missed payment.

Foreclosure Consequences

Foreclosure damages your credit for years.

We call foreclosure "the atomic bomb of credit scars" because it cuts the deepest and lasts the longest. The truth is that foreclosure is the beginning of an eight to 10-year nightmare that can involve:

Eviction by the sheriff
Job and career limitations
Embarrassing creditor battles
Deficiency judgments and lawsuits
Tax ramifications
Garnished wages
Loan qualification challenges
Loss in home equity
