The good news is that preventing a foreclosure is possible: You can try short-selling your property. To do this effectively and successfully, you need an aggressive Jacksonville foreclosure defense lawyers to help you can avoid foreclosure through a short sale.[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”Consequences of a Foreclosure” font_container=”tag:h2|font_size:25px|text_align:left|color:%233272af” use_theme_fonts=”yes” el_class=”attorney_heading”][vc_column_text el_class=”ourpractice_areas1 bankruptcy_link”]Foreclosures can be devastating; it will lower your credit score and hamper your ability to stabilize both your finances and life. Finding a place to rent after your home has gone into foreclosure may be doubly hard. You might have a hard time convincing a landlord—who will likely check your credit score—that you’re going to be a reliable tenant.

Even your ability to find a job may be limited. Employers these days often check the credit of prospective employees, especially for jobs that require handling or overseeing money. A candidate with a history of poor credit and foreclosure is not likely to be seen as trustworthy.[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text=”The Solution: Short Sale” font_container=”tag:h2|font_size:25px|text_align:left|color:%233272af” use_theme_fonts=”yes” el_class=”attorney_heading”][vc_column_text el_class=”ourpractice_areas1 bankruptcy_link”]A short sale is a practical alternative to foreclosures in Jacksonville. It lessens the burden of additional costs and fees for both the borrower and the creditor. It often has a less severe impact on your credit score. More importantly, a short sale spares you from the social and financial consequences of a foreclosed home. The sale will be handled with respect and dignity, just like any other property sale where a pending foreclosure sale is published by law in the local newspaper.

Though it is a better option compared to foreclosure, a short sale involves a lot more paperwork and negotiation to accomplish—which is why you need a good Jacksonville foreclosure lawyer on your side.
