Fox News shared some tips on January 23 offering advice on how to spring back from a foreclosure experience.
• After a foreclosure, borrowers should fix their credit by continuously using their credit and make it a point to pay on time. Lenders may grant loans to borrowers who work to build a continuous and reputable credit history.
• After foreclosure, previous homeowners may need to wait for years before they can qualify for loans from lenders. However, the duration of the waiting period may possibly be reduced if the foreclosure was a result of losing a job unexpectedly or the death of a family member.
• After a foreclosure, borrowers should diligently settle their taxes. People may avoid hefty foreclosure taxes if they prove that they are completely broke or if they seek bankruptcy protection.
