You say that your home is in foreclosure, but it is an expansive category and there are many stages. Are you just beginning to miss your payments? Have you missed at least 3? By law, you have a redemption period in which you can reclaim (or sell your house). This time period varies depending upon how much land the home sits on. As long as you are within this redemption period, you can sell your home. If you are upside down (owe more than you could possibly sell your home for) you do a short sale -- negotiating with your lender to sell your home short of what you owe. It is becoming more and more common as homeowners -- like you -- find themselves in a situation where they have a hardship (job loss, job transfer, adjustable rate mortgage, etc. and need to sell. It is a given that Banks do not want to own any more homes and they are cooperating in this type of sale. My suggestion is that you speak with your lender immediately and that you hire/interview several Realtors to find out who is experienced in helping you with this type of sale. It is a bit more complicated than a regular real-estate transaction and requires experience, education, persistence, and great follow up on the part of you and your Realtor. I am happy to speak with you in more detail, to meet you and your home and discuss your options. Please check me out both on Trulia and my website.
