In response to the economic slowdown, the major lenders/banks and government are working together to save people's homes by 'Åreworking'Â their current mortgages into an agreement the homeowners can afford. This process is often referred to as a 'ÅLoan Modification.'Â
The ultimate goal is to make the loan affordable for the homeowner in the long term. Usually, loan modifications come in the form of rate reductions, fixing the interest rate, extending the term of the loan and reducing principle.
With hundreds of overnight Loan Modification businesses popping up all over the country, the mortgage crisis has opened the flood gates for scam artists and quick money gimmicks. Many people in the process of trying to save their home wind up losing thousands of dollars and their homes, an intolerable double blow. Many of these firms charge homeowners just to push paperwork to your lender. Protect yourself by hiring a licensed professional.
Walking Away / Short Sale
As the mortgage crisis grows worse and the number of foreclosures continues to rise, homeowners are taking measures to rid themselves of their homes and to free themselves from having to make mortgage payments.
If you bought during the peak of the real estate market, the value of your home may have decreased anywhere from 10 to 40% or more. If this is the case, you are most likely losing money by remaining a homeowner. As a result, many are making a sound financial decision by choosing to 'Åwalk away'Â simply because their home is worth so much less than what they paid for it. This is called a strategic foreclosure.
Here are a few questions to go over:
Are you stressed out about your mortgage payments?
Do you have little or no equity in your home?
Have you had trouble trying to sell your house?
Is your home sinking under the waves of the real estate crash?
What if you could live payment free for up to 8 months or more and walk away without owing a penny?
It is important to contact a qualified attorney to discuss potential consequences of 'Åwalking away'Â from your home. Consequences vary case-to-case. However, in California the law is generally favorable to the homeowner/borrower.
By focusing only on your financial issues, we can offer real solutions such as Bankruptcy and Home Loan Modifications. We offer payment plans and competitive rates so you can get the help you need now without worrying about your current cash flow or disposable income.
