If you are looking at facing severe debt or foreclosure on your home, you may be wondering which one you should direct your attention toward. The choice is difficult, and depending on your particular situation, the answer may vary.
If these two choices are either-or options for you, here are the questions you need to ask yourself. How much money have I sunk into my home? How much debt might I be facing if I continue to prioritize my mortgage payments?
If you are still a relatively new homeowner, and your down payment isn’t too high, it might actually be advantageous for you to foreclose on your home and avoid going into debt. If, however, you have a large sum of money already sunk into your home and mortgage, foreclosure at this point could be very painful. Avoiding debt may simply be out of the question. You might have to take out an additional line of credit in order to finish paying off your mortgage.
Weigh your options, and talk to a trusted financial professional as you consider your financial future.
