Question about the making home affordable plan the government signed.?

I’ve been online and researched about the making home affordable program and I’ve found out there’s two parts to the program: one called the home affordable refinance and the other home affordable modification. The home affordable refinance requires the loans to be either fannie mae or freddie mac to qualify. The home affordable modification helps the others that do not have loans with fannie mae or freddic mac. I keep calling my mortgage company, Countrywide, becuase they posted online that they supposedly started to take applications for the goverment program. But everytime I call, they keep saying my loan is not a fannie mae or freddic mac loan; therefore, I do not qualify. I just want to know if there is anybody that does not have a fannie mae or freddic mac loan … Read entire article »

I am thinking about filing for bankruptcy soon?

About two years ago, me and my (then-expecting) wife bought our home for 220k. It is currently worth 120k. The market really hit us hard. The 2 year mark for the loan just passed and because of the crappy rate we got, our payments have gone up another 600 dollars. I stopped paying the HOA fees because I couldnt afford them anymore. They are going to begin garnish my wages for the HOA fees (Court order). I will no longer be able to afford my home.. I am super depressed about it, my life’s in shambles because of this. My neighborhood has For sale houses everywhere and Section 8 renters are ruining the nieghborhood with crime and drugs and their wrecklessness. I cannot allow my son to live in this … Read entire article »

debt consolidation loans- what can I do about all my debt?

I have maxed out credit cards and they raised my apr due to a mistake in my payment and it was late, usually i’m on time or early with my payments and always pay the minimal.

I would like to find a way to consolidate debt to lower the rate and possibly lower the payments but i don’t want to get into a situation that will end … Read entire article »

Trying to be supportive BF: How can my GF find out about all her student loans, and a consolidation option?

My girlfriend just graduated and is stressing out about her loans. I don’t know much about the details of her loan situation, and she isn’t 100% positive about it either. She has a number of loans (let’s say 7) out: 2 Federal Stafford loans 2 Great Lakes Loans 3 Michigan Mi-Loans Now, looking at Sallie Mae’s loan consolidation application I don’t see an option for “Great Lakes” or “Mi-Loan”, only Stafford loans. So does that mean that a company such as Sally Mae can’t/won’t consolidate these “mi-loan” and “great lakes” loans? If not, how should she go about consolidating her loans? Also, on the “Great Lakes” website along with the two loans she has, there are two other loans for 2750 each that say, “Not yet disbursed”. Disbursed = payed … Read entire article »

How to go about personally refinancing a relative’s mortgage (in Ohio)?

A relative in Ohio missed a few payments on her house and narrowly missed a forced foreclosure auction. I’d like to bail her out somewhat by taking over her mortgage from the existing mortgage company. She would then be making payments to me instead of them, and I’d be a LOT more willing to forgive a missed payment or three. (Also her payments would be a lot less, even if I charged, say, 4% or 5% on the balance — and no, I’m NOT trying to get rich off her or gouge her!) It really sounds to me like a refinance process, where she would be refinancing her home, but through me instead of a traditional lender. (I have enough cash to pay off her existing mortgage and separate … Read entire article »
