Sounds bad-why does it sound like foreclosure? Foreclosure is when the lender takes possession of your home because you haven’t kept up your payments. Forbearance is when the lender temporarily suspends your mortgage payments.

Why would they do that? Because it would be more expensive for them if you default on your loan so this forbearance period allows you to get back on your feet without losing your home. It’s not without drawbacks, as nice as it sounds-you will have to pay it back and those arrangements will be between you and your lender. Government backed loans will not have to be paid back in a lump sum. I have links below to see what kind of loan you have.

The good news is that if your forbearance is during the coronavirus it will not harm your credit as it usually would and millions of people are already taking advantage of it during this unprecedented era.

We were new to the area. Deborah sent us listings on a daily basis. When we found one we liked she was there for us 100%. She helped us navigate the process and we ended up with a wonderful home and a great buying experience.
