We Offer Counseling for Various Home Ownership Issues
A short sale is a common and recommended solution for homeowners who want to avoid foreclosure while protecting their credit.
If temporary financial strain is preventing you from making payments, we work with your lender to help you get your payments postponed.
If you’re still able to make payments but cannot make the amount required, we may be able to work with your lender to modify the payment or loan agreement.
Deed in Lieu
If you are unable to make payments and are struggling with your debt, you may be able to voluntarily exchange the title of your home for a discharge of debt.
