Hello again Mr. Howard,

When a home is in foreclosure that means the homeowners have defaulted on their mortgage and the bank or mortgage holder has gone through the legal process of re-acquiring the home. When the home and mortgage revert back to the original lender the home is deemed "foreclosed."

When a home is in foreclosure it means the lender is taking back the property.

Simply stated, a home that is in foreclosure is one the is still owned by the owner but is in the process of being reclaimed by the lender because of the owner's inability to maintain its mortgage payments.
