Bankruptcy Has Hidden Costs for Home Owners –
Linda Craft & Team, REALTORS® Offers Free Advice

RALEIGH – Bankruptcy may be a way out of crushing debt for homeowners in a distressed economy, but there are hidden costs and possible alternatives to consider before proceeding. Linda Craft & Team, REALTORS® ‘s dedicated foreclosure website,, has a new report offering details on these options ahead of bankruptcy. 

“Our ‘Resources’ section offers the real story about how bankruptcy can affect you and your home,” said REALTOR ® Linda Craft. ”The report details the personal, emotional and financial costs you should consider before declaring bankruptcy and the toll it will take, not only on your home, but on your life as well.”

One bankruptcy-alternative discussed in the report is a short sale, where the home is sold for less than the mortgage amount owed. Homeowners may even be able to recover some equity in a short sale.

The Real Estate Foreclosures website also features other resources available to families facing tough choices about their homes, and background on how a Certified Distress Property Expert (CDPE) like Linda Craft can be of service.

The CDPE designation means Craft is certified to present options available and can recommend the best way for homeowners to act before they start struggling with mortgage payments.
