Often the biggest fear of individuals experiencing extensive financial stress is losing their home. People who are facing bankruptcy may also be facing foreclosure, and thus, many individuals who file for bankruptcy will end up losing their house by the same token.
In many instances, filing for bankruptcy helps struggling individuals keep their homes by imposing an automatic stay. Even after the individual has improved their credit score and saved money for a satisfactory down payment, they will still feel the problems of buying a home after bankruptcy. They will have a much higher interest rate on their mortgage, and therefore, will be required to make a much larger monthly payment.
If an individual can handle the large monthly payment, then purchasing a new home is not impossible. They will be able to start a new life in a new home once their finances are in order.
