The foreclosure process in the US can take a very long time and while the home owner waits he will have to suffer the consequences of late fees, fines, increased insurance premiums, plus thousands upon thousands of dollars in "red-tape" charges that he or she would have never had to pay had they not defaulted on the loan in the first place. This is not a joke - foreclosure USA has been kicking around for years and has a very bad reputation. But, if you can hang on until the foreclosure is over then there are great deals on homes in foreclosure that are available and being sold right now.

The foreclosure process in the US is brutal and it has a lot of "holes" in it. One of the biggest holes is that many home owners who default on their loan have their home taken without warning to their family. This means that they are left with no other option than to leave the property and live at an organization that helps them find a new home if they cannot find a new one on their own. The very unfortunate part of this is that they cannot ask for a transfer of the loan until the foreclosure has been cured (in most states, this is a year after the foreclosure sale has taken place).

As the foreclosure crisis continues to worsen, the US government is trying to do whatever it can to help homeowners who are in danger of losing their homes. For this purpose, they are creating programs like the FHA-insured real estate investing program, the foreclosure assistance plan, and the loan modification plan. The FHA-insured plan offers a "pathway to stability" for FHA-insured borrowers who face the possibility of foreclosure. Meanwhile, the foreclosure assistance plan and the loan modification plan offer some help by helping a homeowner retain his or her home. But the best way to help a homeowner avoid foreclosure is by finding a real estate investor who can buy back the home from him or her at an auction and resell it at an even higher price.
