Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure
It is no secret that the the constantly changing real estate market can affect the value of a home. It is not uncommon for the value of a home to be less than what the homeowner’s debt actually is. In these situations, if the home is foreclosed upon, the home may be sold for much less than its actual worth. This causes problems for both the bank and the homeowner as there is still debt.
Electing to pursue a Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure can be a good decision in these situations because it allows the homeowner the become free from any remaining debt on the home. This can be a good choice because the homeowner is no longer responsible for any remaining debt, can maintain a good credit rating, and will be able to purchase another home at a later point in time.

If a mortgage is greater than the actual market value of your home, the loan is considered “underwater”. This situation can sometimes best be managed by pursuing a short sale. In a short sale, the lender will agree to accept less than what is actually owed on a home in exchange for releasing a lien on the property. This can be a great option for homeowners because it can allow them to avoid a long foreclosure process which can be stressful and time consuming.
