Many home owners across north America are facing the harsh realities of not being able to refinance their bad credit house loans. For many years homes were purchased with little or no money down and loans were given to borrowers with credit problems.
Many of these people are now unable to refinance due to dropping property values and tighter lending guidelines that eliminated the looser programs they needed to qualify. Many of these home owners unfortunately are facing or are now in foreclosure.
Usually the main cause for late and past due mortgage payments is an adjustable mortgage that reset leaving the borrowers with higher monthly payments. Lenders know this and many times if you were a good paying customer prior to your loan adjusting they will work with you.
Many time they will offer one of two solutions. They will either offer to change your loan to a fixed rate or give you an extension on the fixed rate period of your adjustable mortgage.
On the occasion where the lender will not help you may have to look honestly at your situation and decide if you can actually afford your home. If you decide that you cannot afford your home you should list it for sale as soon as you can.
Bad credit makes it more expensive to borrow money.the lower the credit score the more it cost you to borrow.
