HAP ALERT! HAP ALERT: Congress once again, attacks the men and women of the Armed Forces - Ok… so it appears that on 15 December 2012, the Senate has stripped Section 2864, the HAP (Housing Assistance Program) provision, from H.R. 1540. Section 2864 of H.R. 1540 National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 would have advanced the HAP mission to do the following... CLICK HERE to read MORE
Should you feel bad or shamed if you find yourself facing financial decisions that have been framed around the crumbled economy? Should you not do all you can to protect your family from eventual financial ruin, less you make a decision - one way or the other? You are one of the millions of home owners throughout the United States who have had the equity in their home evaporate like an ice cube held in Satan's hands. Click the following link to see that you are in excellent company and even more enlightening is the reality that there is "light at the end of the tunnel". FAMOUS PEOPLE WHO LOST IT ALL AND WENT ON TO BUILD EVEN GREATER WEALTH.
Click to listen to Elizabeth Warren, Congressional Oversight Panel speaks out about the Obama Making Home Affordable program. You decide if it's working!
President Obama and his administration have reached out to the banking community in an effort to gain their support of his efforts to provide mortgage assistance to qualified and responsible home owners. If you are currently delinquent or fear you will become delinquent in your mortgage and your home loan is equal to or less than $729,750.00 and your monthly payment, including principal, interest, tax, insurance and HOA dues, is greater than 31% of your gross monthly income (that means before taxes) you may qualify for one of many loan modification or loan refinance programs. The White House has built a web site, MakingHomeAffordable.gov, that will point you in the right direction.
However... if you find yourself outside of the parameters described in the Making Home Affordable web site, then we're here to help.
We are aware of dozen's of mortgage modification efforts that have met with disastrous results, or no results at all. Not one bank, that we are aware of, has offered any real, meaningful assistance to home owners who are in difficult financial positions.
In one instance we encountered a gentleman who had been earning a six figure income in the automotive industry as a sale person for a national auto parts distribution company. His job was lost to the fall of the auto industry. His mortgage payments were now more than he would afford, even though he had secured a job as a clerk for a local retail store. His wife is a stay at home mom, taking care of their four children. His home was underwater by 60% of its value when he purchased the home in May 2006. The Obama Making Home Affordable program did nothing to offset the negative equity. Even if he had agreed to the meager terms of the loan modification offered through the bank who holds his note, he would not regain enough equity to sell his home at even a break even price for 24 years. His frustration levels grew so furious that he simply sent his keys back to the bank. He knows that such a strategy will prohibit him from entering the home ownership finance arena for 4 to 7 years, but in his case, his anger was so profound that he simply wanted to inflict as much pain as possible on the uncooperative banks, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
SIDE BAR FOOT NOTE: We never suggest this course of action. The anger you feel toward the bank should be channeled to uplift you and your family, not drag you and your family down to the low levels of despicable disregard for human tragedy, often displayed by ALL banks.
In yet another instance of mortgage modification effort, this time with a different bank, our client was a retired steel worker. His wife works for the bank that holds the mortgage on their home. After months of failed efforts to make "first contact" with the mortgage workout department at the bank, we and our client began a dialogue with a very kind and knowledgeable mortgage work out analysis. Our client had an Interest Only loan that is going to trip to a higher rate in just a few years. After weeks of investigation our contact in the the banks mortgage work out department came to us with three scenarios, none of which would help our client. First up was a program that disqualified our client because his pension and wife's income disqualified them because their income was too high. Second up was a program that disqualified our client because their income was too low. The final presentation was for the bank to reevaluate our client's eligibility if they would pay off two current debt obligations that amounted to more than half their annual income. In every instance we were told that it was a Freddie Mac POLICY to render these decisions and that the bank's hands were tied. At the end of the day, our client decided to sell his home through the Short Sale process.
The real tragedy in this story is that the bank approved the short sale of the property to a new home owner for 60% less than the original purchase price. This is the same deal that our client tried to get the bank and Freddie Mac to cut so that he could stay in his home with his family. Our client had and has FICOs in the high 700s to low 800s. He never missed a payment, was never late on a payment, is current with all of his other obligations and yet was chased out of his home because the Obama Home Affordable Program is an UTTER failure!
We have helped dozens of home owners successfully traverse the Short Sale of their home. A Short Sale may be an appropriate solution for you. Check out Consequences of Electing a Foreclosure vs. Short Sale. However, you should NEVER make this decision without the council of competent legal advise from an attorney who is proficient in both, local state real estate and tax law. The two requirements, in our opinion, are integrally intertwined. We do not believe that speaking to a real estate attorney and then with a tax attorney is an appropriate strategy. If you wish to meet with one of the top real estate and tax attorney firms in Arizona, make an appointment with Kingman/Winslow.
