      Brett, we have been helping those who fall behind, in America only, for almost two years now. We don't do the actual work it is handled by liscensed lawyers. We also help people receive home loans. This again is in America only. Each countries laws and rules are different and the group we work with are only legal in the US.

      We are advertising more now for home loans because it seems to be the way things are moving. Less are losing their homes and more are buying. We see this as a good thing.

      Thanks for reading and sharing.

      I am sharing this with my followers and am going to tell a friend to look for it. She was asking about how to help a friend who is about to lose her home. I could not remember where I read it but now that I have found out, I will send her over.

      Many of the banks now realize they are losing money that would still be in their hands if they had started negotiations earlier. Vacant houses which are bank owned are expensive to maintain.

      This article was to let people know there is help for those facing foreclosure. The banks may not want to deal with the homeowner but are more likely to if there is a lawyer or negotiator involved. The best are the ones trained both in law and have an understanding of how the real estate banking world works.

      Really useful advice.

      It is definitely in the benefit of both the home owner and the bank to continue the mortgage as long as possible, especially if the rate, or payments, are beneficial to both parties. A mortgage negotiator can not only negotiator rates, but also a break from payments if things are really bad. People need to know about this!

      Thanks for SHARING.

      Believe me Becky we are trying to help as many people as possible remain in their homes. The banks in reality lose if they don't work with homeowners. This has really been brought home to them in the past few years. We work with a great group of people who have learned things since the housing bust, and really are keeping people in their homes.

      This would have come in real handy 6 years ago, when they repossessed my house because I was a month behind. They told me not to make any payments until they adjusted my payment. It went up, not down. I had gotten laid off and we couldn't make it on my husbands disability. The only thing that makes me happy, is that the house still has not sold. This area was hit hard by the housing problem.
