First. Let's talk about the WHY for this book. The book is inspired by all of our readers questions and comments. It is inspired by everything I have learned about the strategic default process.
The purpose of the book is to give you a solid footing when deciding to walk away from a debt. You can compare this book to a foundation of a house. The purpose of a foundation is to carry the full weight, the full load of the home placed on it. We all understand that a home needs to be built upon a proper foundation in order for it to last.
You need a proper foundation to strategically default. The decision to strategically default requires a complete understanding of the process. You need to reach your goals with a strategic default. You need to understand the risks. By understanding your objectives and risks of a strategic default, you will eliminate fear and instill confidence. You will be successful.
The primary goals of a strategic default are:
- Cash Flow Protection
- Savings Preservation
- Wealth Protection
The primary risks of a strategic default are:
- Deficiency debt leading to a deficiency judgment.
- Lower credit score.
- Loss of the home or property to a foreclosure sale.
- Fannie Mae action or government actions against strategic default.
- Debt collections tactics, including mail, letters, personal visits to the property, phone calls to cell phone, work, and/or family members.
The purpose of the book, Strategic Default: How To Create A Brighter Financial Future For You, Your Family, or Your Business is to help you reach your primary goals and to help you reduce or eliminate the primary risks. It is to instill confidence and certainty. In this way, you can execute a strategic default to best fit your circumstances. This book will help you realize the primary goals of strategic default.
The book contains a step-by-step strategic default checklist. This "must follow" strategic default checklist helps you successfully put a strategic default into action.
We must all make the first step. We must put our best foot forward. When it comes to strategic default, the results are not immediate. There is an important principle asserted in the book. The eighth principle from the chapter, Eleven Principles of Strategic Default is:
8. A Strategic Default Is Measured in Years, Not Days or Months
Any decision to walk away from debt begins a long process. The process can last years. It can take a lender or creditor a year or more to foreclose on a property. It can take you three to four years to repair your credit. It can take a year or more to pay back a debt.
It can take a lender or creditor a year or more to win a court action to collect money. You can live in your property, payment free, for a year or more before a lender can successfully foreclose. It can take a year or more before you regain your personal and financial confidence. A lender or creditor can spend a year or more trying to collect a debt through a long process involving letters, phone calls, and/or legal action.
The point of this principle is to show you that a strategic default takes time. It's one thing to implement a strategic default i.e. stop debt payments. It's another thing to live through the process after you stop making payments. The book is a helpful guide while you live through the strategic default process and its ensuing consequences.
Strategic Default: How To Create A Brighter Financial Future For You, Your Family, or Your Business was written for you so you can reach your primary goals, eliminate fear, and live with confidence. Essentially, the knowing and understanding that you made the right decision. Your ultimate goal is to protect your cash, savings, and wealth for you and your family.
So please purchase and read the book. Then decide for yourself. It can change your life for the better.
