During difficult times and financial distress, we can't help but worry. It is good to know what should be done when these things happen.

What to Do When You’re Worried About Your Mortgage Payments

One out of five homeowners currently owes more on his mortgage than the house is worth. Some homeowners may perhaps ask “What are my options if I’m underwater on my mortgage?” If you are among those who can afford the payments and are not planning to move for a few more years, there’s no need to worry. Your equity is being rebuilt with every payment you make, and home prices eventually will rebound, which will bring you above water again.

Another possible option may be refinancing. The new mortgage relief program of the government allows people who owe as much as 105% of their home’s value to get a new loan as long as they can prove they will be able to afford the payments. Homeowners who are struggling financially may be able to get their loans restructured

Your last resort is a short sale, in which your lender lets you sell the house for less than you owe. But that might drop your credit score as much as 200 points, making it tough to get another loan at terms you can afford.

It is advisable to contact your lender if you’re struggling to make your payments. You’re more likely to get help if you reach out before warning notices start coming.

Testimony of financial breakthrough from GOD through the help of Funding Circle Loan INC. (fundingloanplc@yahoo.com OR Call/Text +14067326622)...

Hi I'am Evelyn Russell resident at 808 NE 19th St Oklahoma City, I am a single mother blessed with 2 daughters. For a while now I have been searching for a genuine loan lender who could help me with a loan as I no longer have a job, all I got were hoodlums who made me trust them and at the end they took my money without giving me any loan, my hope was lost, I got confused and frustrated, it became difficult for my family to feed with a good meal, I never wanted to have anything to do with any loan lending companies on the internet again. Not until I met a Godsent loan lender that changed my life and that of my family Through the help of a fellowship member "a lender with the fear of God in him Mr JASON RAYMOND, he was the man God sent to elevate my family from suffering. At first I thought it wasn’t going to be possible due to my previous experience until I received my loan worth $135,000.00 USD in less then 24hours. So my advise to anyone out there genuinely in need of a loan is to contact Funding Circle Loan INC through this official email:- fundingloanplc@yahoo.com OR Call/Text +14067326622 and be financial lifted.
