“What do You Think We Should Do?”

 “What do You Think We Should Do?”




It seems every time we get into issues with our mortgage you seem to come up with a solution. Mary and I have both been out of work for a number of months even before the virus. I am now back to work, but we are over a year behind. The bank had started a foreclosure, but everything had stopped for now. What do you think we should do? 



Even though I shared my thoughts, they didn’t like my recommendations.


The have over $100,000 in equity in their home and they have about $20,000 in credit card debt. No matter what they end up with at least $80,000 after paying all their obligations.


I suggested that they rent for at least a year, allow their credit to improve during that time and if they wanted to own again, they would be in a much better position to become homeowners again. What would you recommend?

I think they should sell that home while they are still able to..... pay off all debt and cut up the credit cards!!! rent for at least a year....and get into the habit of not spending.... bank some money every month, even if it's a small amount.

Good morning Joe. Take your advice! Only use credit cards when they have the cash to pay it off to build a credit record. Enjoy your day
