Are you or somebody you know UPSIDE DOWN with their mortgage & in danger of Foreclosure? If so, we may be able to help. Here’s how:

CDPE Certified 603-635-3350 Ext. 28 978-202-8524 MA Direct rfulford@remaxprestige.com • For lenders, foreclosure is the last resort; one they wish to avoid if at all possible. • They may be open to other options, ones that can help you avoid foreclosure and the drastic effect on your credit. • Options include modifying the loan to make it aordable, or a short sale, where the lender approves the sale of your home for less than the balance of the loan. This can have far less of an impact than a foreclosure on your credit.
