Why Northeast OH Loan Modifications Are Bad: Family Rents Bigger House For $550 Less Than Old Home

Northeast OH – It’s sad that the banks aren’t willing to give anyone a principal reduction. The banks reasoning is that if they start granting principal reductions, then every single upside down homeowner will want one.

As a result people are stuck overpaying for their upside down homes. Take an example of a family who bought their home at the peak of the market. Their monthly payment was $1,400.

Their lender agreed to forgive their missed back payments. But, they wouldn’t reduce their monthly payment. So, this family start looking at other options.

They had recently had their first kid and wanted to move out of their townhouse. They wanted a house with a yard. They found a bigger home with a large yard for their daughter.

The new home even had a 2 car garage that their townhouse didn’t They liked the new home. But, they liked the payment even better. The rent payment was $850 a month.

That’s a 39% reduction in their monthly payment. Even worse, it would have taken 25 years for their house to be worth what they had paid for it.

Let’s say that they had had accepted their lender’s offer and agreed to pay $1,400 a month. According to my calculations, they would have paid their lender $165,000 extra above what they pay for rent.

Ouch! That is a good example of why loan modifications don’t help anyone but the banks. Thinking about a short sale?
