When you buy a home, the last thing on your mind is that one day you might not be able to pay your mortgage. Being foreclosed on can be scary, stressful, and even embarrassing. No one wants to lose their home, nor have a foreclosure show up on their credit report. You lose your home, your credit takes a big hit, and the foreclosure stays on your record for seven years.

As the younger generations start coming into the age where one would typically buy a home, that is not really happening as much anymore. Previously, many people sought out starter homes, where they could plant some roots in a community, before moving on to a bigger and better house. However, the millennial generation is quite different, especially when it comes to buying their first home.

While this is not always true, a broad range of millennials are a part of a far more mobile society. Settling down and planting roots are not as important, or simply not the first priority of many millennials. Travel and freedom are important, and owning a home is not the same status symbol that it used to be. Of course, this doesn’t mean that there

Sheep. These quiet, unassuming animals are often the unsung backbone of any culture and society. Sheep have provided food and clothing for centuries, and sheepherders are almost as old as time itself. Today, sheep still play a large role in the economy of Idaho, even though the animals were not native to this country. The majority of sheep in the United States were originally brought over by the English and Spanish, and the sheep present in the West were brought up from Mexico.

Now, every year in the Sun Valley area, before winter, there’s an event that celebrates the history and culture of sheepherding. It spans four days. This festival takes place when the sheep are being moved to their winter grounds, and it celebrates everything

Having a foreclosure happen to you is never something that you want to go through. However, foreclosures certainly aren’t as rare as they once were, especially since the housing market crash.

Sometimes, your circumstances simply change, and you might find yourself going through the foreclosure process.

It’s not the end of the world, although it certainly feels it. No one wants to lose their home. The state of Idaho and the federal government both offer free or low cost foreclosure assistance. While there’s no guarantee (anyone offering a guarantee is a scam), you will get help to try and keep you in your house.
