Chicago, IL (PressExposure) March 13, 2009 -- Economic recovery has been on the minds of many Americans lately. It’s needed and wanted and can’t come soon enough.

Millions of homeowners have recently lost their homes already to foreclosure and millions more are now facing the risk of it.

The President says his plan can help up to 9 million homeowners.

But while some may be trying to stay afloat until they can feel the effects of the foreclosure prevention plan, there are some tricks of the trade they may be able to benefit from.

According to a recent article on, there are several things a homeowner can do to avoid foreclosure, keep their home, and find their way out of a crushing debt.

The article, “8 Tip to Avoid Foreclosure,” recommends dealing immediately with your lender and keeping the lines of communication open, as some homeowners facing foreclosure may try to avoid talking to their lender at all costs.

While the country struggles to get out of debt, it’s up to you as a homeowner to exhaust all possible options to avoid foreclosure.
