Northeast OH – Thinking about a loan modification. If you can afford to, then order an appraisal. Or, do your own appraisal.

Click here to discover how other sellers successfully did a short sale and avoided foreclosure.

Ask your realtor “Hey, what are houses in my area selling for?” I’ve seen people who bought a house for $500,000. Guess what’s it selling for today? $300,000.

If your house has had a 40% drop in value, then you shouldn’t be paying a mortgage payment based on a value of $500,000. You should be paying a mortgage payment based on a value of $300,000. Make sense?

Here’s how to find calculate you should be paying. Google “amortization calculator.” Type in what your home is currently worth. Enter the interest rate you were originally paying.

Look at the example numbers below.

* A $500,000 mortgage at 6% interest is a monthly payment of $2,997.75.

* A $300,000 mortgage at 4.5% interest is a monthly payment of $1,520.06. Remember, interest rates have dropped a bunch lately.

It looks to me like this person is overpaying by $1,477.69 a month. Ouch!

Run the numbers for your house. If your lender forecloses on your house, then it’s not necessarily going to sell for the market value. Most foreclosed houses often sell for 85% to 95% of the value today.

Remember, knowledge is power. When you have this information you have a much better negotiating position with your lender.
