Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
With so many foreclosures taking place around us and with there being an uncertain future with finances, I decided to check-out The Foreclosure Survival Guide. I'm so very glad that I did. The author, Attorney Stephen Elias, writes in a very easy to understand way. He walks you through some of the hardest decisions you will have to make about your home such as "Does it make sense to give up your house instead of fighting foreclosure?" He gives great insight on ways to keep your home (if it's financially wise) and how to slow down a foreclosure to help you get your footing in life. The book also clears up what a Chapter 7 & a Chapter 13 bankruptcy is and what it means when it comes to your credit. It definitely gives you the tools you need to understand how to negotiate your way through a foreclosure. Before reading the book, I had very little understanding of what actually takes place before, during and after a foreclosure. He answered all of my questions - directed me where to search for more information and explained my state laws (WOW!) all in 10 chapters. He also lists the different mortgage scams out there and how to protect yourself from them. The final chapter gives you resources to legitimate companies, counselors, books, etc. that will help you on your way to understanding your options. If you are losing sleep over what to do with your home, I'd definitely recommend getting this book.
