The Latest Mortgage Modification Assistance News…

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are instituting two new programs to help struggling homeowners with their quest to get modifications. Freddie Mac claims to have helped 250,000 homeowners with loan modifications to date, so the time is better than ever to try and work out your mortgage issues. Here are the new available opportunities:

1. Borrower Help Centers: Help centers are and will be opening up in numerous areas to assist delinquent Freddie Mac borrowers with loan modifications. Homeowners will be able to visit these centers and get one-on-one counseling and questions answered for free. As of now these centers are located in Chicago, Phoenix, San Bernardino (Southern California) and Washington, DC. Counselors are specially trained in helping with modification and other financial issues. Following are the borrower help centers:
