These time periods are general guidelines from the date the Notice of Default is entered to the time of the auction of the property. The timeline for foreclosure listed above does not include any Redemption Period.

A Redemption Period is a time when homeowners can buy back their property at the auction price. Only about half of states have them and they range in time from 10 days in New Jersey to a full year in Ohio.

During the timeframe listed above, the homeowner can take a number of steps to stop foreclosure. They can bring the payments current, sell the property either through traditional means or a short sale, get refinancing, or turn the home over to the lender in a Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure.

If you're a homeowner who needs to know how much time you have before the bank takes your home, you need to get your hands on a copy of The Foreclosure Survival Guide This free report details the solutions for homeowners in distress and gives you a complete timeline for foreclosure.
