Don’t Make This Mistake On Your Bergen County Loan Modification

Bergen County NJ – If you’re trying to get a loan modification, then you have think like a banker. How you present your finances is the key to success.

You’ve got to show them an income that’s not too high and not too low. If you show them too low of an income, they’re going to go “Oh, this guy can’t afford his house payment.

If we reduce his payment to $800, he won’t even be able to afford it anyway so what’s the point in reducing it? Before, he thought he could pay $1,200 a month. He can’t even pay the $800 a month that’s he’s asking for today. He’s not making enough money, based on our ratios, to be able to afford it.”

Here’s what happens if your income is too high. Let’s say your payment is only $1,000 a month and you’re making $4,000, $5,000, or $6,000 a month. They will say “What’s up with this? This guy’s making a ton of money. Why are we going to reduce his payment?”

So you’ve got to make sure your income and your budget is in that middle range. Look at your recent income history.

Maybe you can pull the most recent month. If it shows the right numbers use it. Or, pull from a longer period. Use the last three months or the last six months worth of income. Maybe even use

You want to be able to demonstrate that you’re making enough money to afford that payment, but not making so much money that they will charge you more.

Robert Clarke, RE/MAX Properties Plus, and the Stop Foreclosure Institute are not associated or affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. Our services have not been reviewed, endorsed, or approved 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.

If you stop paying your mortgage, then you could lose your home and damage your credit. 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.
