Hello everyone Kelly Cook here with the KC Real Estate team, your :k1: short sale specialist, thanks for checking out my blog. Our team specializes in helping homeowners in the :k1: area avoid foreclosure through the means of a short sale. If you have questions about your underwater property, or are already considering a short sale, take a minute to browse my website or give me a call to discuss your options.
Today I wanted to talk about comparing a short sale versus a loan modification and what might benefit you the most. This is a questions I get often from :k1: homeowners who want to stay in there house but can no longer afford their mortgage. In my opinion the only time a loan modification is your best option is when a principal reduction occurs. Unfortunately, not many of the :k1: area lenders I have worked with are allowing this to occur for several reasons. Frankly most lenders across the nation are being incentivized to complete a short sale thanks to programs like HAMP and HARP. Because of these government run programs your :k1: lender has no reason to consider a reduction of principal. If there are no options for a principal reduction you are not solving the bigger problem of your underwater home. If you would like to attempt a loan modification stop by my website and download our packet to get you started on the application process.
