A loan modification can help you avoid foreclosure by changing the terms of your existing mortgage. They can be a good option for homeowners facing unexpected financial difficulties or when a homeowner is in danger of losing their home. Loan modifications may include:
- Lowering the interest rate
- Extending the term of the loan
- Changing the loan from adjustable to fixed-rate
- Changing the monthly payment
- Bringing the homeowner current
- Repayment plans
QUALIFYING FOR A LOAN MODIFICATION
There are multiple modification programs that may be available to address a homeowner’s unique situation. A loan modification is a viable option even with missed payments, a scheduled foreclosure date, or when the homeowner owes more on the home loan than the property is worth.
LOAN MODIFICATION ALTERNATIVES
If you are facing foreclosure but are not eligible for a loan modification, there are other alternatives including:
- Short Sale
- Deed In Lieu of Foreclosure
- Repayment plan
- Lump Sum payment
