It’s Not A Job, It’s A Passion (My Story of A Michigan Foreclosure)

Back in 2002, I had a rental house that the tenant had moved out of. We weren’t able to find anyone to rent it to in order to cover the mortgage, so we decided to sell. The problem? Our house wasn’t worth what we owed on it. Yep, even way back in 2002!

We had invested almost all of our savings into repairs and upgrades to the house thinking that would bring in a buyer faster and at a higher price. Boy, were we wrong. Not only did it not bring in any offers, but we were also out of savings and still had that monthly mortgage payment to make. The next thing we knew, we were facing a Michigan foreclosure.

Why am I telling you this story? Well, because had I known that there were other options out there, like a short sale, I could have saved us from the nasty Michigan foreclosure, all of its financial and emotional damage (can you believe they published our name in the newspaper next to everyone else facing foreclosure in the entire county!?!).

I consider myself lucky that I have a career that I love. I help families, just like mine, stop Michigan foreclosures on their houses. I’ve been in those shoes- I know what it feels like to make tons of phone calls to the mortgage company, only to get nowhere. I know what it feels like to have that heavy burden of not knowing your options just sitting on your shoulders. That’s why I’m here – to lift that burden and to help prevent what happened to my family from happening to your family. If you want to discuss your options, please give me a call – I’m here to help.
