So basically, you’re in pre-foreclosure when you start getting behind on your mortgage payments. You’ll be served a notice of default when you’re 90 days past due, and that notice of default is considered the pre-foreclosure process.
I was asked about pre-foreclosure the other day, and I thought it was actually a really good question because when it comes to foreclosure, it can get confusing.
Now I live in the state of Oregon, and in Oregon, there’s two types of foreclosures. There’s judicial and there’s non-judicial.
In a judicial foreclosure, it goes through the court system and there’s a redemption period at the end of it of six months.
Now the most common foreclosure process in Oregon is the non-judicial foreclosure process, and that process involves the home being redeemed by the bank. This is when you hear of people at the courthouse steps buying a property, and the sheriff sells the deed of the property back to, either the bank or somebody else.
The whole process takes about 180 days to complete in the state of Oregon, so if you are past due on your home, and you’re in the pre-foreclosure phase, and you’ve been served a notice of default, then you would have 90 days plus 180 days, so roughly six to seven months, before the process would completely be done.

Now one great thing about the foreclosure process in Oregon, is you have the right to reinstate your loan. Which means you have time, and that’s the great thing.
