Foreclosure Crisis Fosters True Grief

After my workout early this morning, I walked around outside in my backyard with a cup of coffee and thought about my clients. Across the board, I see in all my clients that foreclosure fears foster true grief. When some my clients first meet with me, they seemed to have moved past the grief into acceptance, but nonetheless, during our time together marketing and listing their property, they tell me their stories and they always include a true sense of loss. A real sense of grief.

Reports of foreclosures by the millions have been in the news so much over the past few years that to some, it might seem like the new normal.

But as a real estate agent in Las Vegas who is in the trenches with financially stressed homeowners every day, it never for a second feels to me like business-as-usual.

The prospect of losing ones home is right up there among the major sources of grief, and often, it goes hand in hand with other tragic setbacks such as the loss of a job, a divorce, death of a loved one, mounting medical bills or skyrocketing mortgage payments.

Unfortunately, the first stage of grief is denial, and that seems to be even more the case when the threat of foreclosure is looming. No one wants to talk about or admit financial troubles—even when millions of others have founds themselves in a similar spot. It’s completely understandable, but for homeowners who are behind on mortgage payments, decisive action is often the most critical step toward ensuring the best possible solution.

As a Las Vegas real estate agent who has sought out the Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) designation, I help homeowners to deal with the aspects of the grief and uncertainty that accompanies a mortgage which is no longer manageable. In the process, I help them to get on a path of financial solvency.

If you or someone you care about would like to change the course of a life that’s facing foreclosure, I get it and I can help.

My goal is to help position everyone to be a homeowner again as fast as possible. I want people to own their homes. It is almost impossible to estimate the benefits of having a good home.
