Repossession of houses and properties has been a problem for millions of people all over the country. The lack of money to pay for the loans and mortgages is the main reason for the occurrence of this problem. In order to deal with the increasing number of repossessions, the government has directly intervened. The financial traps and disruptions which have caused the problems are being corrected. This would include uncontrolled lending and approval of loans and mortgages. Many banks and lending companies lowered the requirements and criteria needed to approve an applicant who needs to borrow money. This has been done in order to increase the earnings of the bank. By accepting more borrowers the monthly payments received by the bank would double. But the banks were not able to predict that people belonging in the middle and lower class would lack the payment required in the long term. Once the debt has accumulated, the banks and lending companies were compromised. Due to the rising prices and disrupted money flow, many companies were not able to sustain the financial requirements needed to sustain their operations. This resulted to job loss of millions of people.
In order to prevent home repossessions, the consumers should follow several pointers. Instead of investing all of the money acquired in the stock market, people should have tangible and accessible wealth and assets. This can be in the form of gold, properties and houses.

Tangible properties would not be greatly affected and depreciated. It can be used as bargaining tools in order to cancel the repossession of homes. Many banks have collateral programs which can be used to cancel the home loans if substantial properties can be surrendered. The properties are fairly prices in order to provide good deals to people.
