Can I Stop Home Foreclosure With A Loan Modification?

Atlanta, GA. – October 8, 2012 – In the present economic environment, many families are facing financial difficulties which are leading to foreclosure.  Just mention “losing your home” can cause one to have many powerful emotions.  A loan modification, changing the original terms of the loan, can present any attractive option because it allows the homeowner to stay in their home.

However, loan modifications are not the “cure-all” solution for all distress property owners.  “According to studies done by the Department of Housing and Urban Development,” says Matthew Sipera, REALTOR® and CDPE at Horner Baker Partners, “over half of the people who get a loan modification end up re-defaulting within 6 months.”  This coupled with the increase difficulty in obtaining a loan modification means that they are often not the ideal solution for all homeowners.

In real estate, there is no one size fits all.  The informed homeowner must evaluate all options before making a decision about their financial future.  “Loan modifications in reality work for a very specific set of circumstances.  They are for homeowners who are normally financial stable, but have found themselves in a temporary financial hardship that is threatening their ability to remain in their present home,” said Mr. Sipera.

For most homeowners who are in danger of losing their home, their financial situations run deeper than a temporary financial set back.  Their financial issues are often larger and beyond the scope of what a bank will consider for a loan modification.  For these homeowners, it is important that they are educated on all the options available to them.
