Baugh offers these tips when attempting to do a loan modification on your own:
It will normally begin with several phone calls to the lender or servicer in which the phone call will be answered by an automated system which will provide a list of menu options, and not to mention prolonged hold times for up to 60 minutes depending on call volume and the hold music will sometimes put you to sleep and if you are lucky after waiting 30, 40 minutes your call wont drop and you may have to start all over again. Some home owners describe this as modern day torture.
Once you finally reach a live person and you give them you loan number and other identifying information, don't be surprised if they have to transfer you to another department 3 or 4 times in which you will have to give all you information over and over again to every representative you speak to. To save you time and frustration you will need to speak to the loss mitigation department, this is the only department that can and will handle Florida Loan Modifications, so don't waste your time with customer service, some of the customer service reps have no clue as to what a loan modification even means.
Once you do get a hold of someone that is knowledgeable, you will want to get their full name, direct number and or extension, this way in the future you can get around the long hold times.
To save you frustration and from getting a full head of gray hair, believe me this process have been known to do worst, you can hire a Florida Loan Modification Expert. A Florida Loan Modification Expert is able to devote their complete attention and skills to getting you a beneficial Florida loan modification. There are hundreds of Florida Loan Modification strategies that a Florida Loan Modification professional will use, depending on the home owners individual situation.
Most Florida Loan Modification will result in any of the following: reducing the interest rate, converting the adjustable rate to a fixed rate loan, forgiving default payment, or a combination of any of the above. Principal reductions are definitely a possibility but it is very rare, if you consult with a Florida Loan Modification Company and they guarantee principal reductions you should run and not walk away.
Lenders are more willing to grant just an interest rate reduction, because if done properly will keep the home owner paying their monthly payments and they can avoid a short sale or foreclosure, as short sale and foreclosures are very costly options for the lender.
