    Re: Prayers/Thoughts Please

    UPDATE 10/30: I should hear back from a finance lady tomorrow to see how much I'm prequalified for. I want to thank Morrigoon (sp? Sorry) SO incredibly much!! She introduced me to some great people! Morrigoon: The realtor is great!

    So yeah that's basically all. Looks like I'm on my way to buying a house! If you ever need anything with realty Morrigoon is the lady to go too.

    I want to thank all of you other Micechatters for your thoughts, prayers and advice. It helped me a great deal knowing there were people who really cared even though they have never met me. Thanks. :squeeze: :ghug: Hugs to all of you!

    I hope things work out for you. I'm glad someone else mentioned looking for a loan through CTA. I'll be praying that you find a buyer for your current place and that you find a good place you can afford.

    Actually I was thinking that too But I'm in Bakersfield.

    So I went to see our home mortgage friend and she turned me over to an experiment in the program. He was really nice and everything and said he would be in this morning (Sat) to process it and will call whenever he finds out anything. So Mom and I are going house hunting just to get an idea for what's available around us.

    And on another great note our mortgage friend has connections with a realtor who deals with situtations like ours all the time and says he could sell our house. That would look so much better (and make us feel better) knowing our house sold and didn't go into foreclosure.

    Once again thanks for all your kind words, prayers and support. :ghug: Hugs to all of you.

We're on the right track!

    Thank you so much for that advice! My mom has a friend who works at Wells Fargo and said I could get a lower interest rate, but maybe I'd be more easily approved through a CTA loan company.

    Thanks to all of you for all your thoughts. It really does make me feel better knowing people care. (outside of family)

    Man... that is terrible!!! Hugs for you and your mom! :squeeze:

    In California right now the housing market is starting to flatten out a bit. I don't know exactly what part of So Cal you are in, but real estate is not moving as fast as it once was. This is to your advantage, it is turning more into a "buyer" market again. I suggest that you do as Sticky-poo suggested. With all the people getting adjustable mortgages during the recent boom, unfortunatly many other people are having to let their homes go, and you might be able to qualify for a good deal.

    As far as the forclosure/bankruptcy thing... yeah, each states laws are different. I know the financial advisor is a friend and you trust them, but it might be worthwhile to look into a free consultation with someone who might be better versed in the laws of California in this area. Someone who is strictly a financial advisor might not be up on the exact laws specific to this.

    And know that at any time, you can come in here and vent away and we will always be willing to listen. Plus we have a lot of people around here that are a wealth of technical info!! You can always PM me to if you ever need just an ear!!!

    Hang in there... things seem to happen for a reason. We many not know why or understand them at the time, but whatever happens is because is will lead to something better down the road.

    First I just want to say how sorry I am you and your family are going through all this. You are in my thoughts.

    Second, have your mom talk with a bankruptcy atty. You can get a free consultation I believe. There are exemptions in every state for your house. A bankruptcy attorney can tell you what it is for where you live.

    Good luck!!!!!

    God bless you, Honey...and here's a tip that might help...start going to banks, finance co., etc...and asking if they have any houses for sale. My parents bought their house from a bank...it was one that was just left there by the people who owned it, the bank took it back...they can only sell the house for what is owed on it. Their house is worth at least $60,000...probably alot more since the hurricane, but, they only paid $34,000. You will be in my prayers.

    I believe Scubabe might be correct. I believe that if you file for bankruptcy they cannot foreclose on your primary residence.

    I'm so sorry that this is happening. To have had such a good run and have it come crashing down must be very overwhelming.
    I'm sending positive thoughts your way that it all works out.

    There's nothing the mortgage company can do because her credits so bad. She tried to refiance a few months ago. The financial advisor said to let the house foreclose then file bankruptcy.

    Thanks for all the nice words guys. I knew this was the right place to come.
