Denial of Loan Modification
Today more than ever before people are being denied loan modifications. Homeowners for over 30 years are experiencing the stress and uneasy times of what is on their horizon. Unaware as to what to do about their situation and what their options are moving forward, many are considering losing their home, the possibility of having to short sell the home and walk away from the place called home for so many years, or taking a gigantic hit on their credit score by declaring bankruptcy.
Today homeowner's who have been denied loan modifications need to be aware of their options. The next option after being denied a loan modification is to salvage your credit and do a short sale. Under current government regulations, the federal government is offering up to $3,000 to homeowners to do a short sale meaning selling your home for less than the remaining amount on the loan. This option allows homeowners the opportunity to move on from their situation with $3,000 towards whatever they decide to do, salvage their credit score and avoid foreclosure and bankruptcy which can prevent you from buying a house or car for up to 10 years.
Do not let this situation leave you without any options, and avoid the urge to give up and forget about everything to file bankruptcy. Understand your options. Talk to your local real estate agent, preferably a short sale expert who will lay out your options so you can make the best decision for yourself. Save your credit, and take the $3,000 to "start over".
If you are looking for a short sale resource, do not just flip through the yellow pages for any random real estate agent, you need to find an agent who will lay out the proper options for you and who will negotiate on your behalf to get the short sale completed and hopefully leave you with money left over. Choosing any real estate agent to short sell your home is like randomly choosing any surgeon to perform surgery on you.
