Foreclosure Fears Foster True Grief
Reports of foreclosures by the millions have been in the news so much over the past few years that to some, it might seem like the new normal.
But as real estate professionals who are in the trenches with financially stressed homeowners every day, it never for a second feels like “business-as-usual.”
The prospect of losing one’s home is right up there among the major sources of grief, and often, it goes hand in hand with other tragic setbacks such as the loss of a job, a divorce, death of a loved one, mounting medical bills, or skyrocketing mortgage payments.
Unfortunately, the first stage of grief is denial, and that’s even more the case when the threat of foreclosure is looming. No one wants to talk about or admit financial troubles—even when millions of others have found themselves in a similar spot. It’s completely understandable, but for homeowners who are behind on mortgage payments, decisive action is often the most critical step toward ensuring the best possible solution.
