Mortgage Modification

Has anyone every tried it and actually gotten something? I tried for over a year and got nothing; even used an attorney which was a huge mistake; feel like they took my money and ran. Just wanted to know if anyone acutally ever gets a modification? My husband was out of work for 9 months and I still did't get one.

  • I have a couple of family members and friends who did exactly what you did -- NOTHING CHANGED.

  • Some friends of mine tried and were denied. They lost $1,000,000 equity they originally put down on the house. Lost their whole life savings.

    I don't know what the criteria are, but I don't know anyone who has been successful.

  • Our neighbors did, without a lawyer, but a lawyer helps, just dont make te mistake of paying to much for a lawyer.

  • We did. I am truly amazed because I have never heard of anybody getting one but someway somehow we did. They dropped our interest rate from 6.5% to 4.6%. We go through (dun dun dun) Bank Of America believe it or not. It took about six months. There were a lot of times I just knew they were jerking us around but we got it! I couldn't believe it.
