The housing market in Massachusetts has seen its share of difficulty during the last year. RealtyTrac reported that 1 in every 75 homes in Massachusetts received a foreclosure filing in 2009. Fortunately, loan modifications are becoming more prevalent and regulated. HomeStart is accredited by the BBB and provides loan modification services to the many who qualify.
What is a loan modification?
A loan modification is a permanent change in one or more of the terms of your loan. The purpose of a loan modification is to allow the borrower to meet the new terms in order to prevent foreclosure. A loan modification is not a refinance; it is a renegotiation of the loan terms. In other words, a loan modification is a contractual agreement between the Lender and the Borrower to provide long term relief from unaffordable loan terms. Loan modifications can lower your interest rate, monthly mortgage payments, and the principle balance. Since the cost of foreclosure to the Lender is higher than new terms, lenders are open to loan modifications to prevent foreclosure. HomeStart is here to help you through this process.
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.
HomeStart is one of the few loan modification companies with an A+ rating from the BBB in both the Loan Modification and Real Estate Loan Modification categories. In addition, HomeStart is licensed by the California Department of Real Estate (DRE). HomeStart offers free consultations with experienced representatives and strives to find the best solution to keep you in your home.
