HOMEOWNERS, Don't be taken advantage of!
We hear so much about mortgage modifications for homeowners who are having trouble keeping up with their mortgage payments. There are many scams out there and you really have to be careful! There are companies out there who will take your money, even if you are not qualified for a loan modification, and will tell you that they will apply for it for you. That's just what you need now, right, to be taken advantage of?
Please beware of companies out there now that are soliciting homeowners for mortgage modifications and asking for a large fee upfront. You do not have to pay someone to get a mortgage modification. The best thing to do is to contact your lender. They will need to know your current financial information, your current income, and your hardship. In other words, they need to know WHY you can not keep up with your mortgage now.
To find out if you are eligible for a refinance, loan modification and information on loan modification SCAMS to watch out for, visit:
Making Home Afordable or call 888-999-HOPE, if it is urgent that you speak with someone right away. No matter what you find out here, it is also a very good idea to still contact your mortgage company directly and see if they will work something out for you.
Some of the loan modifications are being approved, but it is not easy to get done. You must find out what information your mortgage company needs from you, get it them ASAP, AND diligently follow up with them. This little video from CDPE, Certified Distressed Property Experts of which I am proudly a member, shows you where you can get some help and to see if you qualify for a mortgage modification. Another important thing to know is that you have to be able to show that you can afford the new mortgage. A modification would be very tough to get if you do not currently have income or resources to pay the new amount.
If you are unsuccessful in obtaining a loan modification, don't let your home go into foreclosure. Call me and let's explore the option of a short sale as an alternative to foreclosure. Of course I will not charge you for the consultation, I am here to help.
