I have had a lot of people ask me about the process and interested in the outcome of foreclosure but no one has asked how does it feel?
How does foreclosure feel?
It feels shameful. If I say this out loud many just tell me it’s okay so many in America are in foreclosure there will be programs to buy later on. It’s not about buying a house later (cus I’m never going to have another mortgage!) it’s about making a stupid choice not sitting down and looking at what we had income wise, not putting money down and not knowing our economy. Yes, we were young and naive but that is no excuse to be uneducated! Now I sit here and hear our friends talk about doing the same thing so they can live rent free and it just sounds so cliche to me (everyones doing it, why not us?). They dont seem to get that we fought for four years with an ever rising payment just to be totally shut down in the end and that sucks!
We took the steps to avoid Foreclosure
We went to HUD
We called/faxed/mailed/e-mailed our mortgages DAILY
We got no where
We tried a short sale
We got foreclosed on.
I’m mad, sad, disappointed, angry and ashamed! I won’t deny it and I know these feelings will fade in time but this is how I feel.
