Not Interested In Short Selling My Home. What Else Can I Do?

08/04/2011

I recently attended an online seminar regarding short selling and one of the speakers said something that really stuck with me.  He said that many times when a homeowner is faced with the possiblity of being unable to make their mortgage payment(s) for whatever reason, they are not interested in learning how to short sell their home.  What is important to them is how they can keep their home and not have to sell it.

While assisting Kansas City home owner’s sell their Kansas City home is how I make a living, I have learned how important it is to share with others my knowledge of what may help them even though I receive nothing in return.  Knowledge is Power!

So, let’s start talking about what things you as a Kansas City home owner may be able to do to avoid having to sell your Kansas City home.  As you may have heard, there is a government program called “Making Home Affordable“.  This program is also commonly known as “HAMP.”

  • HAMP is a program designed  to assist struggling homeowners to avoid foreclosure by modifying their existing loans to an amount that is financially manageable.  There are, however, certain guidelines that must be met before you consider applying for this program.  One of the requirements is that the home must be your principal residence.  There are eligibility requirements based on your finances as well.  However, this is a very good starting point if your goal is NOT to sell your home.

If you don’t know what to do if  you are falling behind on your mortgage payments or you are currently facing foreclosure of your Kansas City home, Kansas or Missouri, please continue to read the upcoming posts and Request a Free Confidential, no obligation, analysis of your home and options that may be available to you to help reduce the burden you may have.

(There are potential tax consequences that should be discussed with a tax professional.  Please do not interpret this information as providing legal, tax or other professional advice which you should seek independently.)
