Today is the day.

It’s past time you had someone in your corner.
Our first consultation is always free.

The Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (Bureau) proposed an amendment to the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) to assist borrowers affected by the COVID-19 emergency.
Millions of homeowners look forward to a loan modification under this new rule that will modify their 30-year mortgage to a 40 year mortgage and decrease their interest rate to less than less than 3.5%.
Let’s say you have a 30-year mortgage in the amount of $500,000 at 5 % interest with a monthly payment of $2,684.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, no payment has been made on your mortgage and you now have $64,416 in mortgage arrears (24x months).
Apply the New Rule: Extend the term 40 years (480 months) and reduce the interest rate (3.5%).
The Result:  40-year mortgage in the amount of $564,416 at 3.5% with a monthly payment of $2,186.
Millions of homeowners just saw drop of $498 per month and they haven’t paid their mortgage in 2 years.

CRISIS AVERTED.

That also means that US housing stock is going to continue to decrease and the cost of purchasing a home is going sky rocket.
