Life of a Southern Mom has teamed up with the ASPCA for a social good post on making homes affordable. I was not compensated for this posting!
The holiday season is just around the corner, which is really a stressful time of year for many. Especially for those who could be on the verge of losing their home. And while this is, of course, a stressful thing for anyone to go through, having it happen near the holidays can be devastating.
Some people may go their entire lives without ever having to face the struggle of foreclosure. But the sad truth is, it happens much more than people really know. About one in 13 homeowners nationwide have fallen behind on his or her mortgage payments, putting them at a higher risk of foreclosure.
