Expert Says Facing Up With Pre-foreclosures Do Not Necessarily Lead To Nightmare Situations For Most Homeowners
Phoenix, AZ -The worsening economy has heightened the likelihood of foreclosure incidents for many homeowners as the scarcity of available jobs further threatens the ability of many Americans to meet mortgage payments.
And amidst the challenges currently encountered by many distressed homeowners, foreclosure expert Ken Spohn said that the most effective way of dealing with foreclosure is to first come to terms with pre-foreclosure issues, which he admitted should prove quite difficult for troubled homeowners to deal with in the first place.
Spohn said that homeowners would naturally grapple with the reality of pre-foreclosure matters, irrespective of their professional and economic status as he added that the mere idea of discussing the topic immediately pointed to the dreaded mortgage issues, which many homeowners were not even comfortable to speak about.

This is in response to CNNMoney.com “The Obama’s Mortgage Loan Modification is underway.”

So, what does that mean for you?
Well, lets take a look at this two part plan. First the banks get some money for helping you out That really doesn’t effect you to much.
But then it goes on to say “The modification plan calls for the servicer to reduce interest rates so that the monthly obligation is no more than 38% of a borrower’s pre-tax income, and then the government would kick in money to bring payments down to 31% of income. Servicers can also reduce the loan balance to achieve these affordability levels. The government will share in the cost, up to the amount the servicer would have received if it had reduced the interest rates.”
To my knowledge the 38% is pretty standard for a full doc loan. So, where is the benefit?
Then it does say that the home owner will get a incentive if all payment are made in a timely manner. It was not clear who will pay that incentive the Bank or the Government.
What You Don’t know About Loan Modifications Can Hurt You!
Did you know that over 9 million people are in Foreclosure and another expected 9 million on the way. Those are staggering numbers! Most people think they only have a two options to save or delay the NOS (Notice of Sale). First to delay the sale they may try to sell their home with the assists of a Realtor. The bank may allow a couple extra months to try to sell the home. Option two is Bankruptcy. This will put an automatic stay on the sale, generally from 3-6 months depending on the local /state laws.
What many people don’t know is the Obama’s administration pass a new program that banks / lender’s are required to work with the home owner to help them stay in their home. The program, unveiled last month, creates a $75 billion loan modification program that would allow “responsible homeowners” to refinance to interest rates as low as 2 percent. This allows at-risk borrowers to reduce their monthly mortgage payments in an effort to keep them from losing their homes.These loans can be extended as long as 40 years.
Here are some qualifications about the program:
