Do Not Lose Your House to Foreclosure, Look into Loan Modification

Nov 21, 2007
There are several reasons that you loan modification may be the route for you to take to avoid foreclosure. This is not a process that you will want to consider just to skip a few payments on your mortgage. This is for those that have missed a few payments on their mortgage and are able to now make future payments on time. This is a great way to avoid dealing with loan sharks and refinancing into a much higher interest rate with fees.

So what are the benefits of loan modification? Here are three that you should keep in mind if you find that you have been behind but are now able to make the monthly payments:

1. If you have missed mortgage payments in the past, but are now back on track, loan modification can help you continue on the right track. In general, your lender will allow you to roll your missed payments into a modified loan. With this process, you are able to attach the missed payments to the end of your loan and still pay your house off.

2. If you are already facing foreclosure loan modification may help you to keep your home. As you can see, this is one of the biggest benefits of this process. If you have found yourself with foreclosure closing in, loan modification could help you to resolve this issue in enough time to keep your home. Lenders are not always able to modify your loan if you are too far behind but you should at least look into loan modification if you think that it has the chance to help you out.

3. The loan modification process is long and can be daunting. If you are about to lose your family home the process and effort is well worth the reward. You will have a lot of help along the way, and if you are willing to make it work, this is truly a way to save your largest asset from being lost.

These are only three of the main benefits of avoiding foreclosure through loan modification. As you can imagine, there are many others that you will also come across if you are ever faced with this situation. Keep in mind, loan modification process is not all fun and games. Your best bet is to work as hard as possible to always make your house payment.
