President Obama is aware of the hard financial times that the average American faces. Home values have dropped, and the rising number of foreclosures just makes things even worse as each foreclosure lowers the surrounding home values even more. In an effort to help homeowners, the Government now offers 2% home mortgage refinance or modification.This plan, enacted just last month, makes millions of homeowners eligible for a 2% refinance or modification. Some things that were typically needed to be eligible to refinance, such as a 20% equity stake in your home, are no longer required as mortgage lenders and banks strive to follow Obamas guidelines and approve as many homeowners as possible. This stimulus refinance package should make the average homeowners average monthly payment much smaller and savings of hundreds every month are typical. This will help a lot of homeowners who are in foreclosure, or will be, by giving them a chance to save their home.This government backed plan will restore consumer confidence in the housing market, prevent millions of foreclosures, and to help struggling homeowners. There is over $75 billion dollars available to mortgage lenders and banks to help them approve homeowners they otherwise would have denied. This means that getting approval for a mortgage refinance or modification is now easier than ever.Homeowners who are seriously looking into a mortgage refinance or modification and use this stimulus plan will be able to obtain a mortgage payment that is no larger than 31% of the homeowners gross monthly income. A lot of homeowners currently pay 50% or more every single month just on their mortgage payment. A reduction of 20% would equal big time savings which would add up quickly.The mortgage lenders and banks who abide by this stimulus bailout plan will need to follow an exacting set of guidelines set by the Government. Homeowners will easily be able to save huge sums of money every single month just by taking advantage and refinancing their home. At least look into the potential savings from modifying a home using this “Making Home Affordable” plan from Obama.
