IL – According to the Wall Street Journal [1], the average homeowner with a home in foreclosure hasn’t made a payment in 492 days. What’s even crazier is that those homes are still in the foreclosure process.

That means that a homeowner can live rent free for even longer than 492 days. How long could they potentially live rent free?

In some states like Florida and New York, we estimate that they can live rent free for two years. We have even seen cases where homeowners were able to live rent free for three years.

If you are facing foreclosure, then I am sure that is good news. But, I’m sure you are wondering why it is so long. Let me explain.

The entire foreclosure system is backed up. There are several parts that make up the “foreclosure system.” The first part is the bank’s foreclosure departments

These departments coordinate everything in the foreclosure process. The second part that is backed up are the foreclosure lawyers. There are only so many lawyers trained in foreclosure work.

The big law firms that specialize in foreclosures are now handling 2-3 times as many foreclosures compared to a few years ago. The last part that is clogged is the courts.

The courts are not going to have judges start processing foreclosures unless that judge is properly trained in foreclosure legalities. So they are scrambling to find judges experienced with foreclosures.

This is turning into a spiraling problem. Two years ago many homeowners would have looked down on someone who took advantage of the system.

Today those same homeowners are emboldened by seeing other people do it with no consequences. That is why I think the problem is going to take a few more ways to work itself out. Thinking about a short sale?
