One of the best places, you hope, t
o sink your capital for a good retu
rn is in real estate. However, when
you provide the financing for some
one to purchase their own home, you
r capital is tied to their ability
to pay back the loan. If they start
to miss payments, then you need to
mortgage calculator which specializ
es in foreclosure loss helps you to
decide when the time is right for
starting action against the homeowners.

In theory, if you own the loan, you
own the property if the mortgage y
ou're financing goes into default.
However, this doesn't mean that you
will automatically see a profit -
or even not suffer a loss - should
you need to foreclose. There are a
number of things to take into accou
nt which a foreclosure risk of loss
mortgage calculator can call to yo
ur attention so that you don't allo
w things to get out of hand.

For example, the mortgage calculato
r may ask you to input the amount o
f interest you receive on the loan
each month. Then it asks for how ma
ny months you received no interest
leading up to the foreclosure. The
longer you keep the non-paying owne
rs there, the more this will amount
to. You'll start seeing just where

The mortgage calculator may want to
know the amount of the loan, and t
he value of the property (remember:
this is the value now, not when th
e mortgage was taken out.) This sho
uld be in your favor unless the pro
perty has been allowed to fall into
disrepair during the time the owne
rs had it. Sometimes, when they can
't make the mortgage payment, they
lose interest in even basic mainten
ance.

Another factor that the mortgage ca
lculator considers is any property
taxes which are unpaid. Once you fo
reclose on the property, you become
liable for these and if they haven
't been paid for quite some time th
is could account for a serious defi
cit in your funds! First there are
the taxes; and then, there are pena
lties; and the final total includes
interest. While the mortgage calcu
lator take these into consideration
, don't forget to follow up. It is
possible to check whether or not th
e property taxes are up-to-date pri
or to foreclosure by contacting the
county or parish in which the prop
erty is situated.

Legal fees are another area that th
e mortgage calculator might remind
you to take into account. No matter
how long you allow the arrears to
go on, the legal fees will be waiti
ng for you. There will be the legal
fees associated with the foreclosu
re; and then another set of legal f
ees when you resell the property to

Other miscellaneous entries that ma
y be entered on a mortgage calculat
or will include:

* selling costs
* any discounts that you   give in or
der to sell the property   quickly an
d not lose more interest   than neces
sary
* any necessary clean-up   and repair
costs,
* even insurance of the   property i
n the interim period between forecl
osure and exchanging contracts with
the new owners of the property

After all that, you begin to wonder
if you're making a profit. Well, u
sing a foreclosure mortgage calcula
tor before it becomes absolutely ne
cessary to foreclose will show you
the value of working with your clie
nts to help them stay in their home.
