Mississippi is number one in delinquent mortgages. During the month of October, there were more homeowners behind on their house payments in Mississippi than any other state.
According to the Mortgage Bankers Association there are 4.2 million homeowners across the country that are more than 90 days behind on their house payments or already in foreclosure. This indicates that we are not on the road to recovery like the media would have you believe.
Foreclosures are increasing and mortgage companies are still not willing to help homeowners with modifications. If you want to save the house you cannot sit around and wait for the foreclosure sale. Get your documents together now, meet with a lawyer that does foreclosure defense and bankruptcy and learn what your options are. Get the information now before you need it. Be prepared. Plan ahead. You don’t buy car insurance after the wreck. Over and over people come in to meet with me after the foreclosure sale is set trying to find out what to do. In most cases we can still help them and save the house, but they would have been a lot better off meeting with me as soon as they started getting behind.
