Book Description

We’ve all heard the reports. Americans are losing their homes in record numbers, and the housing crisis seems unlikely to subside anytime soon. Foreclosures affect all kinds of people and all kinds of properties. Many people faced with foreclosure feel helpless and resigned to giving up their homes without even trying to save them. The good news is that with the right advice, homeowners can take control of the situation, avoid foreclosure proceedings, and even protect their credit. Lloyd Segal, mortgage banker, attorney, and real estate investor has spent the last twenty-five years helping homeowners save their houses. In Stop Foreclosure Now, he shows readers how to:

develop a plan to delay or stop foreclosure • understand the documents involved • negotiate with their lender • use the courts to stop foreclosure and bankruptcy • arrange to refinance their property • sell their property quickly • use military status to stop foreclosure • understand foreclosure laws in all 50 states

Timely and indispensable, this guide will help anyone survive the housing crisis and preserve their most important investment.

As a principle, I stay far away from self help and you-can-do-it-yourself books, because more often than not, their authors seem to have the secret ambition of turning clueless reader/user into experts on their subject matters. Mr. Segal's book does not supply the reader with needless information on foreclosure, short sales and related matters: it simply provides very straightforward answers to all the fundamental questions the distressed homeowner actually has and to which he/she is seeking concrete answers to get out of a difficult situation. Plain and simple.
.
What more, the book is remarkably clearly written, and structured in such a way that the user/reader does not spend a minute agonizing over where to start, what chapters to read, or what information could be relevant given his or her particular circumstances. This book is in fact very results-oriented, and explores right from the start different viable solutions; from there, the reader/user is then guided through his or her solution, or best alternative option very steadfastly by the author. In that regard, I have to admire Mr. Segal's great ability to navigate the reader/user through a complex situation with surprisingly simple solutions, and his ability to put himself in the shoes of a distressed homeowner. Truly amazing!

Now. I came across, and bought this book when was entangled in a seemingly dead end situation: I had tried - rather very unsuccessfully-- to sell my house on which I owed more than the current market value, from 2 different lenders; my real estate agent, and real estate lawyer had both given up on my case; I felt trapped, and I was angered by the situation. When they let me down, I freezed, and was basically waiting for doom to loom on me. " Stop Foreclosure Now.

I've read lots of real estate books over the years, but "Stop Foreclosure Now" is one of the best. Plus, you don't have to be in foreclosure to appreciate its contents. For example, I'm a real estate investor, but still found it valuable. The book is divided into five sections. The first section covers promissory notes, mortgages, and deeds of trust. The second section differentiates between judicial and non-judicial foreclosure and describes the procedures for each. The third section describes various strategies homeowners can utilize to stop the foreclosure and save their homes. The fourth section, which was particularly helpful to me. Describes the specific foreclosure procedures in each of the 50 states. It includes a nifty map of each states and that state's website (which you can access for updates on foreclosure laws). The final section contains a glossary of commonly used real estate terms. This book is a valuable new addition to my real estate library, and I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to learn more about foreclosure.

"With STOP FORECLOSURE NOW, author Lloyd Segal has done a HUGE favor for many of us homeowners who have to face the very real intimidating and frightening process of coping with such financial difficulties. By simplifying and demystifying many of the steps involved, Mr. Segal has given us access to the knowledge and the ways and means necessary to better protect our families and our properties.
It's a very important intermediate step before having to seek and pay for professional help!

Thank-you,

Howard Gordon"

A little outdated, I would recommend a book that was written past 2010 that has more current laws as well as programs that homeowners are elgible for also many states have new laws that help homeowners avoid foreclosure all together.

So many of us never prepare for things like this. Reading this book will give some insight that you may be able to share with someone close to you later on.

You may NEVER need the information you learn but, it is WELL worth having the knowledge anyway!

Much of the information is outdated, please take care to understand your specific circumstances and the laws in your state before relying on this book. On the other hand, it is very thorough.

I like this book because it goes into detail to explain Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies and then answers all the questions one might have about foreclosure. It gives great ideas as to how to save money, how to plan your exit if you have to move. Gives a lot of good information about ways to stay and work with the lender. Info on modification, delaying the sale, if you are a military person how it affects you and so much more that helps one
make a good decision as to what to do.
