California now has the highest total number of foreclosures in the nation and ranks fourth for the highest foreclosure rate. RealtyTrac reported that an alarming 1 in every 66 homes in Apple Valley received a foreclosure filing in December 2009. If you fear you are at risk of losing your home, it may not be too late to get help. HomeStart is here to help the many people who qualify for a home loan modification to keep their home!
Now more than ever, lenders are willing to renegotiate the loan terms. Not only do lenders save more money by modifying a loan than foreclosing on a property, but President Obama’s new Homeowner and Stability Plan (HASP) further incentivizes lenders to offer loan modifications. These loan modifications entail permanent adjustments to the loan terms that can allow homeowners to maintain their mortgage payments and keep their homes. HomeStart will determine if you qualify for a loan modification and get the process started with no upfront fees.
Why choose HomeStart over a law firm?
There are a number of reasons to choose a loan modification specialist like HomeStart over a law firm. The cost is usually much higher with a law firm. Law firms typically do not offer fixed rates for home loan modifications. They often charge hourly, which can lead to prices 2 to 3 times higher than those of loan modification specialists. Lawyers charging hourly will want to maximize their profit, which means the loan modification process will not only be more costly, but take more of your time. Law firms also do not uphold the same standard of customer service as HomeStart does, knowing that they are a last resort. If you want to save money, time and experience better service, HomeStart is here to help you start new, not over.
