But, in today’s tough economy they have no choice but to accept them. The primary reason a lender will grant a loan modification is because that usually reduces their losses.
If they foreclosed on the house instead, then the losses would be larger. Besides most foreclosures take 18-24 months and often longer.
(That alone should convince you that their losses will be larger after a foreclosure.)
Use this to your benefit when negotiating a loan modification. Hire a real estate agent to tell you what your house is worth. Then, show your lender that value.
Now, add in all the costs that you can think they will incur if they foreclose on your home. Below are some examples costs.
Current Market Value: $300,000.
Lost Interest income at 5% over two years. $30,000.
Property Taxes over two years: $6,000.
Home Insurance costs for two years: $3,000.
Projected Net from a foreclosure: $261,000.
Because the lender can clearly see how much money they will use, it make it much easier to negotiate a reasonable loan modification.
If you want a realtor to give you the value of your home, then please send me an e-mail. I can put together a Broker’s Price Opinion and tell you what I think your home’s value is.
You can use that to negotiate with your lender. Thinking about a loan modification?

Dana Ehrlich, Keller Williams Realty, and the Stop Foreclosure Institute are not affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. Our services have not been reviewed or endorse 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.
We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. 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.
