If you or someone you know is 30 days or more delinquent on their home loan, there are several option that are available to help you on them in this time of great need. Please call me as there are several solution that I may be able to recommend to you that would lessen your mortgage burden and get you on path of recovery. Some of the solutions include:

Rate Reduction and Loan Modification: If you have a reset on your loaned and your mortgage payment is going up significantly and/or you have a variable rate mortgage, some lenders allow for a note modification and rate reduction thus lowering your payment and making your payment more affordable. You could also ask for a note modification to make your loan fixed thus avoiding the surprises of your mortgage payment rising.

Forbearance: In case you have a short term crisis, such as job loss or medial illness, the lender ma allow a Forbearance thus thus suspending your payments for a period of time until you get through your crisis. At the end of forbearance, the lender may look at way to modify your payment and adjust your loan to account for the missed payments.

Short Pay or Short Sale: In the case when you simply can not afford to stay in the home and you are behind on your payments, lender may allow what is called a Short Pay or Short Sale. That is when you find a willing buyer to purchase your home for less than what is owed on the property and the lender takes a loss on the loan. Many lenders prefer this option over a foreclosure as it reduces their losses over that of a foreclosure and also gets the delinquent loan off their books sooner reducing the risk of the loan to their institution.

Finally, is you are totally satisfied with your current loan and financial situation and want to take advantage of investing in foreclosures and/or significantly reduced prices of real estate, call me to see if there will be opportunities for you to take advantage of over the next 12 months.
