Monday Market Myths

Foreclosure only effects your credit?

FALSE.  Many people do not know that a foreclosure lasts F-O-R-E-V-E-R.

A foreclosure may be off your credit record after seven years, but have you thought about the other effects of foreclosure

  1. a foreclosure is PUBLIC record and anyone at anytime can find out
  2. your employer could run a credit check and your job may be at risk
  3. a company you apply for may decide to hire another applicant due to a foreclosure
  4. must disclose on mortgage applications and you may be “at high risk”
  5. lowers credit at lease 300 points-if you are behind on other bills, then you may have trouble rebuilding credit
  6. your lender may be able to seek debt for many years to come, ask an attorney
