Do loan modifications actually help?

Asked over 2 years ago - Las Vegas, NV

We've been reading about loan modifications, and they seem to be hard to get, as well as not too helpful. Is it worth pursuing one?

    Answered . Loan modifications are not as hard to get as they used to be. Qualifying for a modification is about balancing your income & expenses.

    I filmed a 4 part series explaining how loan modification works & am posting the link to the first section of that series for you to view.

    Hope this perspective helps!
