Owning property has been the foundation of America since proclaiming independence in 1776. Becoming a property owner has become considerably more difficult in the past four years as banks collapsed and mortgage providers repossessed homes in record number.

The level of foreclosure property is staggering, with estimates of over 6 million repossessed homes since 2007. While foreclosure rates dropped in 2011 they are expected to increase in 2012.

The only way to get their attention is to stop paying mortgage payments.
