You've got the dream house that you've always wanted to own. Everything's hunky dory until the time, you have to start with your mortgage payments. There are many buyers who've had to face the threat of foreclosure, because their finances weren't planed properly. Before you decide to go for a home loan remember to plan well. For those who dread that they are slowing moving towards a foreclosure, here are a few tips that might help you.

- There are a number of subscriptions that you don't quite use, but still they form a part of your monthly expenses. For example, you might not need the movie channels, but are still paying premium costs for them, just to be able to catch a movie, during the weekend, or the internet package that you've currently got isn't too cost effective when compared to its' competitor, but you've still retained it. Reviewing these subscriptions can have a positive impact on your monthly expenses.

- When it comes to expenditure, there's nothing to match the lure of the credit card. Reducing your credit card consumption is very important. If possible you could even avoid using the card, so that you have the advantage of paying off your current credit card debt without having to add additional burden.

- The best way to avoid an additional burden is by paying for the mortgage on time and if possible a little early. Doing so ensures that you do not have to pay for penalties etc. If possible you can arrange for the money to be deducted monthly from your salary or savings.

- If you've made a realistic assessment and yet think that you are heading towards a foreclosure, you could meet with your lender and tell him about the problem. It is important to meet the lender and discuss about the problems before your account is transferred over to a debt collector. Your account is turned over to a debt collector only when the lender looses faith in you. Most lenders are realistic and willing to work out a solution, provided you have a genuine claim. There are some lenders who may either reduce or suspend the payment for a short period. Upon resumption of regular payment you may have to pay a little extra. Some lenders change the terms of mortgage by either extending the repayment period or reduce the monthly debt.

Managing your monthly expenses and the mortgage [] payment isn't difficult, but needs a lot of sincere effort.
