Here is a tactic you can use to delay the foreclosure process and even stop a foreclosure sale. Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure. Here is a story from Alberto where he explains what to do. "Here is what I had to do. In the case of looming foreclosure sale date then, I get the owner to go to the courthouse and file a petition with the foreclosure judge. (The owner is the only one allowed to do this. I think the actual legal term is a motion.) The seller will be asked to go to a hearing with the judge. The owner goes to the room where the judge is holding session. They sign in and wait to be called. The owner will be only one allowed to speak and they must explain the situation. The owner explains that there is an offer on the property and that they need some time for the lender to process the short sale. I always recommend that the seller take copies of everything to show the judge. They bring the sales contract and the buyer’s loan approval. Most of the time, the judge will grant their request and extend the foreclosure sale date by 90 days. The only exceptions are when it has been postponed several times already. I hope this helps.
