IL – It is not a lot of fun to write a hardship letter. In fact, it can be depressing. Many people may not know how bad their lives have become until they reach a point of writing a hardship letter. Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure. Sometimes seeing all those awful things in writing is startling and some people start crying. However, do not turn and start talking about how your life will improve. Do “NOT” share your hopes and dreams for the future with the bank. It's none of the bank's business. If there is hope on the horizon, if there is a chance for recovery and for you to become whole again, then the bank will not hesitate to grab a knife and plunge it into your heart. If your bank senses anything that shows that you might have the financial means at some point in the future to repay part of that debt, then the bank will jump on it like hot fudge on a sundae. The bank doesn't care about you or protecting your precious credit rating. So do everything you can to clue them into the harsh reality of your situation. Let them know that you have thought of bankruptcy. Most people think of bankruptcy for just a second and then try to shove the thought into the back of their head. But, let your bank know that you have thought about bankruptcy. After all there is nothing that scares them more than bankruptcy. They know it allows you to walk away from your debt. It also makes them much more willing to negotiate with you. If you are on the brink of bankruptcy, then you've got a story the bank can listen to. Do not be afraid to be truthful and tell that story.

Our services have not been reviewed or endorse by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why? Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit. However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification. We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision. This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing. You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.
