President Bush compromise may help thousands of Homeowners out of trouble

Today,  The White House announced that the President would lift his opposition to a Housing bill being voted on today in the House of Representatives.   This bill includes several upgrades for homeowners accross America.   It provides tax credits for first time homebuyers of up to $7500.  Property Tax credits for other qualifying homeowners.   Authorizes Government investment to shore up Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac, the two largest guarantors of home mortgages.  It will allow permanent upgrades to the maximum loan amounts for Fannie, Freddie & FHA (details to come in the following weeks).  Here is the part that really inspired me to write a post.  It will allow upside down homeowners to negotiate with their current lender to allow a "Short Refi".   What is a "Short Refi"?  This process allows you to negotiate a payoff of your current mortgage that is lower than the current balance, so that you can refinance into a safe, secure & affordable FHA Fixed Rate Mortgage.   Previously, Lenders had little motivation to do this, as the tax laws on how they must account for the write down in debt made it undesirable for their financials.  Now, the new legislation, combined with the burden of the growing foreclosure lists,  have made lenders more likely to work out a solution. 

Part of the key to success with this strategy is to work with an experienced FHA direct lender such as VanDyk Mortgage.   We have over two decades of FHA experience to offer you.  We can even help with the negotiation of the short payoff to assist you into a better, more secure financial situation.  Call us today at 866-900-2342, ask for Brian Skaar.   Or apply online at www.vandykfunding.com
