Help for Homeowners –

To explore your options you should first visit the government website www.makinghomeaffordable.gov to find out if you can take advantage of the “Making Home Affordable” program. You may be eligible for special refinancing or loan modification if your mortgage company is participating in this program. You can find out if your loan is eligible for refinancing or modification by going to http://www.makinghomeaffordable.gov or by contacting Fannie Mae, at 1-800-7FANNIE (8am to 8pm EST) www.fanniemae.com/loanlookup or Freddie Mac 1-800-FREDDIE (8am to 8pm EST) www.freddiemac.com/mymortgage
You don’t have to be behind on your mortgage to seek help with this program. If you have a loan that is an adjustable rate mortgage, a balloon note or a high interest rate you may be able to refinance at a better interest rate. Or if you are experiencing a financial hardship due to a loss of income since you obtained your loan, you may be eligible for a home affordable loan modification. If you qualify for the loan modification option, participating lenders may even be able to reduce your first lien mortgage payments to no more than 31% of your gross income, by either reducing your interest rate, increasing the term of the loan or by a forbearance. Go to www.makinghomeaffordable.gov today to see if you may be eligible for loan modification or contact your lender and ask if they are participating in “the Home Affordable Modification Plan” or HMP.
