I am often asked about loan modifications for banks outside of the major banks (i.e. Chase, Bank of America, and Wells Fargo). We have had success in obtained a loan remod with both big and small banks alike. We recently obtained a modification for a client who had a line of credit with Popular Community Bank. Despite the fact that the client only had a line of credit on the home, and the property was not significantly underwater, we were able to obtain a loan modification with Popular Community Bank that significantly alters the payment and saves our client thousands over the life of the loan. Read below for more details on the modification:
Client R.O. in Riverside, California
Bank: Popular Community Bank
Payment before loan Modification: Interest-only payment of $670
Interest Rate: Adjustable-Rate mortgage set at Prime plus 2.5%
Loan Modification Terms
Modified interest-only payment of $370
Fixed interest rate at 3% for the life of the loan
Monthly Payment Savings: $300 (a 45% reduction in payment)
As can be seen above, the Client was able to get her payment lowered to only $300 a month making the mortgage payment very affordable. After the initial five-year term, this loan converts to a principal and interest payment. However, the low rate of 3% will remain for the entife life of the loan.
