Apress author Chris Lauer gives advice to home owners in financial crisis in his new book, “Underwater: Options When Your Mortgage Is Upside Down.”

New York, NY (PRWEB) December 20, 2012

A whopping 28.6 percent of homeowners with mortgages owe more on their loans than their homes could sell for, according to quarterly data recently released by Zillow, a real estate website. Over the years, since the housing bubble burst, there have been a number predictions and initiatives made by real estate pundits and politicians but none that have really helped to sort out the crisis for such homeowners.

“UNDERWATER: Options When Your Mortgage Is Upside Down” by Chris Lauer, a veteran financial journalist finally outlines the different options available to home owners in distress: when foreclosure is a good idea, how to best protect the equity you’ve built up, what the financial repercussions of going into foreclosure are, how other homeowners have been able to turn their mortgages around and rise up from dire circumstances, and how to take advantage of government programs designed to keep you happily housed.

At the same time, this optimism can be difficult to see from underwater. Those who suffer from negative equity need help from people who have worked inside the real estate market long enough to understand its ebb and flow. This book is filled with the advice of experts who know about underwater mortgages from the inside out.

The stories, tips, and advice in this book come from those who have seen enough real estate transactions to know the score. They were there on the front lines when the real estate bubble burst five years ago and they returned with experiences and knowledge that can be vital to underwater homeowners seeking relief from in tough times.

Chris Lauer takes a straight forward approach to the facts, ideas, and advice that can help any underwater homeownerespecially those facing foreclosuremake smart decisions for a better future.
