Morris County NJ – Many people are shocked that it is often cheaper to short sale and rent then staying in your home with a loan modification.

They find it hard to believe that they can rent a comparable or even nicer home for less than their mortgage. Here are the two factors that make it possible.

Many homeowners bought homes for more than they are selling for today. A perfect example is a homeowner that paid $150,000 for a home. His mortgage payment was around $1,500 a month. He stopped making his payments and moved to a rental. He found a nicer, larger home to rent for $850 a month. He had tried for months to convince his lender to modify his loan.

The lender wouldn’t drop the payments below $1,200 a month. Even though the home he’s renting is nicer than his house and it’s selling today for around $105,000.

Someone can buy that house for $105,000 and rent it for $850 a month without losing money. That’s what makes it cheaper to rent versus getting a loan modification and staying in your home.

When prices were rising it was actually more expensive to own versus rent. But, everyone wanted home ownership for the tax benefits and for the fact homes are a great asset.

So, if you are thinking about a loan modification, then first check into the rental market. You will be able to negotiate your loan modification from a position of power. . That will make it more likely that you will get the reduced payment you need so you can keep your home.

Merydith Endelman, Realty Executives International, and the Stop Foreclosure Institute are not affiliated in any way, shape, or form with the government. Our services have not been reviewed or endorse by the government or your lender. Most lenders willingly work with agents on short sales. Why?

Because most short sales are beneficial to a lender. If you accept our offer to help you on a short sale, your lender may not agree to a short sale or to modify your loan. We do offer a loan modification kit.

However, the likelihood of negotiating a modification is like everything else in life. It takes work and persistence to convince your lender to modify your loan. No matter what you or we do, your lender may not approve a loan modification.

We do not recommend that you stop paying your mortgage, because this will cause damage to your credit and could cause you to lose your home. Because we know avoiding foreclosure is so important to any homeowner, we recommend that you speak with the appropriate legal or tax advisor before making any decision.

This is not intended as legal, technical, or tax advice. Please speak with a licensed professional before making any decision. Information is deemed reliable but not guaranteed as of the date of writing.

You have the option to reject a short sale or loan modification from your lender if it does not meet your approval. If you decide not to go thru with the short sale, then you do not have to pay us our fee. We normally make a real estate sales commission for helping you on a short sale.
