To begin, SSWPSave doesn't believe that refinancing your home is always in your best interest. Sometimes, once a potential homeowner's financial situation is examined in both the short and long term it may be the worst thing they could do at that particular time. However, sometimes, refinancing your home is the best move you can make providing you have the information you need to make the right decisions!
First of all, knowing that you are having some sort of financial trouble is an emotionally charged event. Most owners in situations like yours have intense feelings of doubt, fear and anxiety. Questions arise, such as: "My credit is bad can I refinance?" "My bank has already started the foreclosure. Is it too late to refinance?" "I can't afford the payment I have now. Is there any way to refinance and lower my payment?" "Can we really afford to do this?" "Is selling my house at this point even an option?" "Are we doing the right thing?" "Is bankruptcy an option?" "Are we sure about this?" And so on and so on.
Again, potentially losing your home is an emotionally charged event. And the owners who let their emotions, instead of logic, invade their thoughts and decisions make the biggest mistakes!
When Faced With Foreclosure You Must Have A Plan!
All decisions regarding your home affect your financial picture! Your financial picture affects all decisions regarding your home! And most people don't plan to fail; they simply fail to plan! Having a plan is critical to successfully dealing with your problem, yet most people never get around to doing much, if any, planning.
#1: Be Aware of Who's Really Helping You. Is anyone protecting you? Are you getting the right advice? Just who is on your side anyway? One of the first lines of defense you can take as a homeowner is to take a hard look at who's really helping you. Other than friends, relatives and acquaintances, you need some good sound advice, right? So, whom do you turn to? You'll have to answer this question for yourself.
#2: Understand Banks! It's actually surprising how many homeowners just grab the phone book and off they go on their search for a new loan! Before spending your valued time calling around in search of a new loan, complete our Online Help Form . We know the people in town who can get the job done without wasting your time.
Keep in mind that banks are in the business of loaning money, in order to make lots of money. Ironically, most banks lend money to people who really don't need it. Banks are mainly in the risk-avoidance business. We advise you to work with mortgage specialists or brokers who tend to be very motivated and work hard to help you. But, you have to be careful. Not all mortgage companies are on the up and up. Make sure you carefully read all the paperwork before the closing!
#3: Understand Financing. Decisions about interest rates, down payments, the length of the loan, escrow, points and so on, need careful analysis BEFORE you consider refinancing your home. And, when it comes to making these choices, you need to first be aware of all the alternatives and options so you avoid making financial mistakes and falling even deeper into any hidden financial traps!
#4: Be Aware of Questions You'll Be Asked! Why are you behind in your payments? What can you do differently in the future to assure us that you will not get into the same situation again? Your income? Number of years employed? Self-employed? Funds available for down payment? Other credit problems? How much do you want to spend per month? How much can you afford to spend each month? What are your means of repaying the new loan? Will you be financing for 15 years or 30 years? How much will you be putting down? Do you want a fixed or adjustable rate? Do you want a higher rate with fewer points, or do you want a lower rate with higher points? (And this is only the beginning.)
We have found that many homeowners are not prepared for all the financing questions asked at their loan meeting. Nor will they have the paperwork necessary for a complete loan application. These are just some of the many questions you'll be facing and you'll have to have done your homework first, in order to make the appropriate decisions.
#5: Determine What Will Be the Least Expensive Financing in the Short and the Long Run? That's what you want, right? Don't you want the loan to cost you the least amount possible? Sure but it's also important to know HOW to make the right choices and calculations so that you DO pay the least amount possible, for both your short and long term financial standing!
Just like a doctor, each person's options need to be thoroughly diagnosed before prescribing any medication. So don't go into the refinancing arena without first examining your present financial situation, and the long-term affects that refinancing can have versus other alternatives such as selling outright? You see, you must evaluate where you will be in both the long term and the short term. The worst decision we see being made is where someone refinances, only to find they are right back in the same situation within the year. At this point, they typically lose it all: home, credit and self-esteem.
#6 Understand Creative Financing Options! Sometimes, conventional/normal-refinancing channels (banks, credit unions, mortgage brokers) just won't work out for some reason or other. We're now going to quickly take you through some various "creative financing" options. Take note of the different alternatives available to save your home!
#7: Protect Yourself Legally From Every Angle! Throughout the foreclosure process, from the first notice of non-payment, all the way to receiving that dreaded letter from the lender's law firm, we can't stress enough the importance of getting professional help.
To summarize, success in stopping a foreclosure requires the following:
Without preparing a "STOP THE FORECLOSURE!" plan, in our opinion, you'll have a very small chance of ever getting what you want! Or, you may find yourself settling for less because you didn't know of, or thoroughly understand, all the options that are available to you. As you can tell, curing a foreclosure requires a plan and a team. A team of professionals who work FOR you, who can help you set up, and implement your coordinated plan.
Curing Foreclosure & Saving Credit Errors!
You should now understand that there are many, many critical factors in determining the fate of your home ownership. There are also critical errors being made everyday, such as:
We hope you have realized all the different elements involved in refinancing your home during this time of crisis. Most of all, we hope you will now know how to avoid these costly mistakes, and save yourself thousands of dollars!
As much as we would have liked to tell you that curing a foreclosure is a simple experience and takes no skill or knowledge, we simply can't do that to you! You must be observant, open to ideas, and plan the best moves to save your credit and your home from the inevitable!
