Comparing Options to Leave Your Home

If homeownership is no longer affordable and you don't qualify for a modification or alternative to stay in your home, there are options available to help you exit gracefully from your home and avoid the financial and emotional impacts of foreclosure.

Reach out to your lender (the company to which you make your mortgage payments) to determine the best solution for your situation. They want to work with you to assess your eligibility for the following options:

  1. Short Sale
  2. Deed-in-Lieu
