Where Can I Find More Information on Foreclosure Prevention?


There are a variety of programs available to help you resolve your delinquency and keep your home. You may be eligible for a payment deferral which allows you to make reduced payments for a period of time. Or, if you have missed a few payments, you may qualify for a temporary or permanent solution with a modification to your loan to help you get your finances back on track. Depending on your circumstances, staying in your home may not be possible. However, a short sale or deed-in-lieu of foreclosure may be a better choice than foreclosure.

Please see the programs below for more information, or you can contact us at 1-866-519-3479. Additional foreclosure prevention information is provided by SunTrust at Equity Home Retention.
