Earlier this year when the nation pressed pause on the economy and unemployment rates jumped up significantly, many homeowners were immediately concerned about being able to pay their mortgages, and understandably so. To assist in this challenging time, two protection plans were put into place to help support those in need.
First, there was a pause placed on initiating foreclosures for government-backed loans. This plan started on March 18, 2020, and it extends at least through December 31, 2020. Second, homeowners were able to obtain forbearance for up to 180 days, followed by a potential extension for up to another 180 days. This way, there is a relief period in which homeowners have the opportunity to halt payments on their mortgages for up to one year.
Not Everyone Understands Their Options
The challenge, according to Matt Hulstein, Staff Attorney at non-profit Chicago Volunteer Legal Services, is, “A lot of homeowners aren’t aware of this option.”
There’s definitely traction behind this statement. In a recent survey by The National Housing Resource Center, housing counselors from across the country noted that many homeowners really don’t know that there is help available. The following graph indicates the reasons why people who are in this challenging situation are not choosing to enter forbearance:
“530,000 homeowners who became delinquent after the pandemic began did not take advantage of forbearance, despite being eligible to ask for the plan…These responses reflect a need to provide better information to all homeowners. (Lump-sum payment is not the only repayment option.)
Additionally, 205,000 homeowners who did not extend their forbearance after its term ended in June or July became delinquent on their loans. We need to examine who these people are and why are they not extending their option.”
Clearly, a more focused effort on education about forbearance and relief programs may make a big difference for many people, and a clear understanding of their options is mission-critical. Some communities, however, have been impacted by the economic challenges of the pandemic more so than others, further confirming the need to deliver education more widely. The Urban Institute also indicates:
“Black and Hispanic homeowners have been hit harder than white homeowners…nearly 21 percent of both Black and Hispanic homeowners missed or deferred the previous month’s mortgage payment, compared with 10 percent of white homeowners and about 13 percent of all homeowners with payments due.”
It’s important to note that any homeowner experiencing financial hardship has the right to request forbearance. If you’re unfamiliar with the plans available, contact your mortgage provider (the company you send your mortgage payment to each month) to discuss your options. It is a necessary next step, as you may qualify for mortgage relief options or forbearance.
One option many homeowners may not realize they have is the ability to sell their house in this time of need. With the growing equity that homeowners have available today, making a move might be the best option to protect your financial future.
If you need additional information on your options, you can review the Protect Your Investment guide from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and the Homeowner’s Guide to Success from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). For the majority of people, our home is the most important asset we have, and you should use all the help available right now to be able to preserve your investment.

Communities especially built for ages 55 and older are among the most active sectors in today’s housing market. Demand in the category continues to grow, powered by downsizing empty-nesters as well as buyers who’ve simply had their fill of yard work and major household maintenance.
Woods Point is a picturesque, gated active adult community in North Bellingham/Ferndale offering 76 homesites meticulously designed for convenient, uncomplicated living along with contemporary personality, charm and aesthetic appeal.
With five home designs to choose from in Woods Point, buyers have the option of a single-level home, or they can choose a plan with a master suite on the main level and a bonus loft for guests, office, or space for hobbies or a quiet getaway.
“We are thrilled to be launching this new community in the greater Bellingham area … a truly stunning location,” says Kendra Decker, vice president and principal at Landed Gentry, the builder at Woods Point. “The gated entrance, private streets and beautiful woodland reserve make this a very special place to call home.”
Models range from the Laurel, which offers three bedrooms and two baths on 1,536 square feet, to the Garden, which includes three bedrooms and 2.5 baths, a home office and a Hobby/Craft Studio on 2,372 square feet. All homes include a two-car garage. Extra rooms and outdoor fireplaces are available as options on most models.
Prices at Woods Point range from $535,900 to $655,900.
Interior features include open layouts with main-level living; natural gas fireplaces; white painted millwork; engineered hardwood, carpet and vinyl flooring; 9-foot ceilings and vaulted areas; AristoKraft cabinets with dove-tail drawers; stainless steel KitchenAid free-standing range (gas or electric), dishwasher and micro-hood; granite slab kitchen and bathroom counters with undermount sinks; generous pantries with deep shelves; and polished chrome faucets throughout.
Outside, the homes reflect the grace of Craftsman-style architecture, with design details such as covered front and rear porches, complementary decorative colors, and fully landscaped yards, complete with irrigation systems and coordinating fencing. The lots are leveled and many of them feature wooded buffers and open space.
Community amenities include walking trails along the expansive woodland reserve, plus a community lodge with room for pickleball and other activities.
Woods Point is located in Whatcom County, which is known for its abundant natural beauty and sweeping scenery, from the Salish Sea to Mount Baker and North Cascades National Park. Ferndale and Bellingham offer farm-to-table menus, craft brews, family moments, a vibrant arts scene and historical treasures. Shopping, medical facilities, Western Washington University, Bellingham International Airport, casinos and much more are all minutes away.
Buyers at Woods Point have the opportunity to select their favorite sites and floor plans and have homes built uniquely for them using the builder’s streamlined presale process, Decker says.
“Finishes such as flooring, lighting and cabinets, as well as structural options, can be selected at the builder’s showroom — assuring the home fits the buyer’s distinct lifestyle,” she says.
In addition to the personalized presale process, the builder is also constructing eight “quick delivery” homes, several of which will be ready for move-in this fall. These homes include a package of upgrades for optimal value.
