Even if a Trustee’s sale has begun, you still own your home and have the option to sell it.
You can sell your house yourself before the Trustee’s Sale date. If your property sells for much more than you owe, you may be able to pay off your mortgage and costs while also receiving money to help you find a new place to live and cover moving expenses. Consult with a few reputable realtors to get a realistic estimate of how much you might be able to get if you sell the house. Always speak with a licensed realtor whom you have contacted based on the recommendations of others.
Even if they claim to be a lawyer, never use the services of someone who comes to your door to “assist” you.
The number of times I see homes in a trustee’s sale where there is enough money to pay off all the creditors and leave extra for the homeowners is remarkable. The issue is most likely that the homeowner has no idea how much their home is worth. Use a licensed realtor who contacts you, not one who contacts you.

“My only regret is that I didn’t find Diane sooner.” K.H.
I can’t say enough good things about Diane. The way she handled my not typical circumstances was amazing. I was very nervous to start the bankruptcy process but Diane just has a very comforting way of explaining the whole process. My only regret is that I didn’t find Diane sooner. If you find yourself in a financial situation that you can’t correct on your own, please Call Diane Drain as soon as possible.
