Distressed Homeowners: You Are Not Alone

It can be stressful when you discover that you have a distressed property.  Uncontrollable external factors can result in outstanding mortgage payments or tax bills. Before you know it, if things don’t change, you’re facing the reality of possible foreclosure or selling your house as a distressed property.

Or, maybe your circumstances are different, there aren’t issues with your mortgage or late payments, maybe things have simply changed. Life happens, and it can happen quickly. Whether it’s a divorce, relocation, or family death, you may need to sell your house quickly and don’t have the time to go through the usual selling procedure and sell it on the open market.

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and alone at such a time; you may not know how to sell a distressed property. Yet, you don’t have to be alone. You’re not alone. With our help, you can make the process of moving on as painless and productive as possible.

Looking at the Numbers

Let’s start with the stats. In 2016, 7.3 percent of all U.S. home sales were distressed sales. However, this was the lowest it had been since September 2007. It peaked in January 2009, making up a total of 32.4 percent of all home sales, with 27.9 percent of that share coming from REO (real estate owned) sales. This timing reflected the economic crisis at that time. Before this crisis, sales from distressed homes typically held 2 percent of that share.

These figures show you are not alone. So if you find yourself needing to sell your house quickly, there have been others—many others—who have been in your position.

Dealing with the Stress

Because we work with people in your situation, we’re very familiar with how you must be feeling. Whatever the reason for needing to move from your distressed home, there’s no doubt there’s stress involved.

Selling your house and moving is well-known as a significant stressor; add-in the factors that require a fast sell—the sort of factors you’re facing—and the stress levels are exacerbated.
