Tampa Foreclosures and Short Sales

What is a foreclosure?

Foreclosures usually happen when a mortgage lender seizes a home because the home owner (borrower) failed to make timely payments on their loan. The lender will also take steps to sell the house and recoup as much as they can.

Also, foreclosures can happen if the homeowner does not make payments on property taxes or HOA fees.

I'll write and create a video diving deep on this topic soon.
