Preventing Foreclosure With Short Sales or Deeds in Lieu of Foreclosure
A short sale is a real estate transaction in which the mortgage lender agrees to accept a pre-agreed sale price as full repayment of the mortgage, even though the sale price is less than the outstanding balance of the mortgage. Short sales are valuable for homeowners whose mortgages are higher than their home values.
A deed in lieu of foreclosure is another type of real estate transaction that may be useful in preventing foreclosure. Your mortgage lender may not want to spend the time and money to file a foreclosure and may agree to take the deed to the house back from you and consider the mortgage closed.
We can help you negotiate either of these transactions with your bank.
Preventing Foreclosure With Loan Modifications
You may be able to talk to your bank about a home loan modification. Several federal loan modification programs exist, including the Home Affordable Modification Program (also known as the Obama Plan). We may be able to negotiate on your behalf with your bank for a mortgage modification to reduce your interest rate, reduce the principal, or extend the term of the loan.
