I have blogged about NACA in the past–they are the organization that was able to get me and several people I know and thousands of others great loan modifications after our banks had already denied us…and they did it for FREE! They saved me about $1620 per month!
If you only own one property (the American Dream), or one property that has a mortgage on it, then NACA may be able to help you too.
You can attend one of the events like I did or you can do the process online and/or via one of their local offices; Oakland is the closest office to the Bay Area.
From what I have heard, people have the best success by attending the events. A “same day solution” may take 2-3 days to actually happen because of the large number of people who attend the events in person, but it is well worth all the time sitting and waiting, and overnight expenses if they are able to help you. I suggest taking food and drinks in with you so that you do not haveto pay the high food prices and eat junk food while you are there. Take a good book or something toread or do to occupy your time while you wait.
If your loan is owned by the bank you make your payments to and the bank is one that they work with, then you should have your modification terms before you leave the event, aka your “same day solution.” If your loan is only serviced by the bank you write your check to, and is actually owned by an investor or group of investors, then they can write up a proposal of new loan terms that represent an affordable mortgage solution for you and get them submitted to your lender, but you will usually have to wait 30-45 days or so to see if the investor(s) who own(s) your loan will agree to the changes.
