I have received several questions obtaining a loan modification from EMC in Riverside County and Orange County. EMC mortgage is owned by JP Morgan Chase. During the real estate boom, EMC operated under its own name as a seperate division. Since the market crash, EMC no longer operates as a separate division but is handled completely by Chase and follows the same general guidelines. As with many of the larger lenders, a loan modification or loan remod can be difficult due to administrative hurdles. If you are struggling with a modification with EMC, Chase, or any other lender, give us a call at (877) 346-7411.
Since I receive several questions about modifications through EMC, I am going to post a sample modification we obtained for one of our clients in Costa Mesa, Orange County, California.
Loan Balance: $405,000
Original Loan Payment: $2,832.05 (Principal and interest only)
Monthly Taxes and Insurance (not included in original mortgage payment): $180
Total Payment for Property Before Modification: $3,012
Terms under Loan Modification (Remod):
Modified Principal, Interest, Taxes, and Insurance: $1,774.72
Monthly Savings under Modification: $1,237.82
As you can see, the modification of this EMC mortgage will save the homeowner over $1,200 a month. Within the first five years of the loan, the client will save nearly $75,000. As part of a loan modification analysis, I often point out to my clients that they need also consider the cost of renting a home should the decide to move out of their home. In this case, a review of rental properties reveals that my client would spend $2300-2700/mo. to rent a comparable home.
