We have a story to share that makes us sad. A family contacted us in June, because they realized they were soon going to lose their home to foreclosure. They were scared, but they’d waited a while after they realized the extent of their problems to contact us.
Our team member, Carol, talked to them and sent them the forms needed for us to buy their house quickly and keep the foreclosure off their credit record.
But. They waited. It took them six days to send in the forms. We couldn’t do anything to help them without the paperwork. By the time we got it, the Independence Day holiday was going on, and there was no way to get all the money and legalities completed. Worse, it turns out that the foreclosure auctions in Texas go through, even on Federal holidays.
The house was sold off, and this family now has no home, and a foreclosure on their credit record for the next ten years.
How could this have been avoided? Easily. They could have given us a call when they first realized that they were not going to be able to come up with the money to get out of foreclosure themselves. We would have had plenty of time to buy the house from them, giving them some money to find a new place to live, and a cleaner credit record.
We are right here at 512-807-8777. In order for us to help you, you have to be willing to work with us, though!
