On March 4, 2009, the Obama Administration announced their plan to help homeowners affected by the economic downturn and housing slump. Called the Making Home Affordable program†
, it is expected to help over 9 million homeowners like you who are at risk of losing their homes because of reduced home values and equity, delinquencies and financial hardships.
With the Making Home Affordable program, you can get help by either refinancing or modifying your mortgage.
- Refinancing is for homeowners who are current with their mortgages, but are having difficulty refinancing to a lower-rate mortgage due to declining property values and equity. To qualify, your mortgage has to be held by Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae.
- Modifying is for homeowners who are delinquent in their mortgage, currently in the foreclosure process, or are current on their payments but have recently experienced a significant hardship, like a job loss or medical emergency.
To get help and support, take action. With a reputable lender and a HUD-approved housing counselor†
