Sept. 19, 2011 - PRLog -- Macomb County, MI –Local CDPE-designated agent, Maria McGuire of Re/Max Advisors, has released a new report confronting the trapped feelings struggling homeowners encounter when facing an unaffordable mortgage. The report titled “Feeling Trapped by Your Mortgage?” provides information on the options many homeowners have to avoid foreclosure, including short sales.

A short sale occurs when a lender allows a homeowner to sell a property for less than the current mortgage amount owed.

“Studies by local REALTOR associations show many homeowners don’t know about their alternatives to foreclosure,” Maria McGuire said.  “With this report, I aim to educate distressed homeowners in my community about the consequences of foreclosure, and what they can do to avoid this financial challenge.”

A recently conducted study of distressed homeowners who were foreclosed upon found that only 5 percent knew of their options and only 3 percent took advantage of them. As the mortgage crisis continues to claim more and more Americans, Maria McGuire sees the need to educate homeowners on the financial and emotional damages of foreclosure.

This community resource is available at In addition to providing more information on the alternatives to foreclosure, the report explains the potential fallout of “strategically defaulting,” or choosing not to make payments, which is a growing trend in the mortgage crisis.

“There’s certainly nothing strategic about ‘strategic default’.” McGuire said. “When you can avoid foreclosure, there’s no reason to risk the financial backlash by willingly going into it.”

The CDPE Designation Maria McGuire has acquired provides a specific understanding of the complex issues confronting distressed homeowners.  Through comprehensive training and experience, CDPE-designated agents are able to provide solutions for homeowners facing financial hardship in today’s market.
