Selling Your Austin House In Foreclosure – How it works
There are a lot of folks in Austin who have faced foreclosure in the past few years. Since the changes in the economy, a lot of banks have been shifting the way that they deal with foreclosures. Remember, the bank that carries your mortgagedoesn’t want to see your home abandoned or auctioned. The bank stands to make the most amount of money by helping you toavoid foreclosureby selling your property. However, dealing with banks during any part of the foreclosure process can be a huge pain. Over many years of working with banks to help stop the foreclosure process, we’ve learned a few tricks that will help you.
Working With Banks During The Foreclosure Process
Always over-communicate with the bank(but don’t be annoying). Call with updates and show them what you’re doing to get your property sold.
Don’t miss deadlines.If anything will be late, call with advance notice.
Remember that bankers are people too. Don’t be overly dramatic, but explaining your situation and demonstrating your willingness to fix the problems to make it right goes a long way.
Start keeping careful records of every conversationyou have with the bank. Nothing counts unless it is in writing. Make sure to keep track of each person you speak with, what they said, and any promises made.
Explore all your options, including short sale, loan modifications, and bankruptcy. Depending on the details of your personal situation, you may be able to dramatically slow down the foreclosure process with enough effort. Each bank has its own policies to help borrowers avoid foreclosure.
Don’t wait.Unfortunately, time is not on your side. The further behind you become on payments, the fewer options are available to you.

"We moved to the Austin area in early 2017 and Violet was instrumental in helping us find our first home. She was readily available to show us neighborhoods and homes as well as taking our calls and answering questions. She helped us throughout the entire process and always had resources & statistics for us to review. My husband is a finance guy -- so he appreciated having numbers to analyze as well as home-price comparisons between neighborhoods. She was attentive to our preferences and made great efforts to satisfy each one.
We were both new to Austin and to the process of buying a new home, after having rented for numerous years. Violet is very knowledgeable as to the process of buying a home and we didn't have any uncertainty about what to expect or what was next. Violet is also a great resource as to each neighborhood including details as to the schools, shopping & community.
She is extremely thoughtful and caring! For instance once we closed & moved, she helped us find a table for our kitchen.
We have recommended Violet to our family and friends. Now that we are settled into our new home & neighborhood, we sort of miss our weekend house-hunting adventures with Violet!"
