    Loan Modification Verses Refinance Verses Short Sale: What is the best option for you?

    Loan modifications are becoming easier to obtain, but still require a “financial hardship”.  This could be defined simply as loss of income.  However, the decision to approve your loan modification is ultimateley up to the investor who owns your loan.  In most cases the investor is not the same as your mortgage servicer who you make your payments too.  Each investor has their own formula for how they will determine you loan modification eligibility and new payment.  You can do a loan modifiction on your own, however your chances of success are much higher if you pay a professional who is doing loan modifications on a daily basis.

    Government has recently imposed regulation requiring Loan Modification companies to work under an attorney.  If you choose to go through a law firm, make sure the company has a prooven track record, good reviews, or was referred to you by someone you trust.

    Is a loan modification right for you?  When I consult clients on all their options I alway recomment that they take a step back are look at the reality of their current situation and their future.  If you are so far upside down on your home that it’s going to take  decades to regain your equity, you may want to consider a shorts sale.  Even if it stings your ego and perfect credit a bit.  Recent statistics show that over half of the people who did a loan modification ended up short selling their homes shortly after.  See below for new loan programs available to home owners 12 months after a short sale.

    Also keep in mind there is still a loan program that allows you to refinace even if your upside down.  See below for newest loan programs lending   I am here to answer your questions so don’t hesitate to contact me more details on loan programs, loan modifications, and short sales.
