This is what it LOOKS like when you get evicted
There have been a hundred stories written about what happens when you stop paying your mortgage. But not one of them (that I can recall anyway) contains the most feared visual image associated with the foreclosure process, which is the eviction notice. A couple of weeks ago in my neighborhood a single mother and her 1 year old daughter were asked to leave their home by 3 Dekalb County Sheriff deputies. Well, I guess technically it wasn’t their home any longer. The image below if of the eviction notice placed on their front door.
