Home Loan Modification Hurt by Higher Mortgage Rates

Many home owners went through the process of getting a home loan modification for one of two reasons. Either they wanted a lower rate to save money or they were doing everything in their power to save their house. In the first situation, many Americans have been very smart with their financial decisions and they got a chance to refinance their homes are rates that are almost unheard of. Some owners got rates as low as 4.5%. The second situation is something that no one wants to go through. When you know you cannot make your mortgage payment and there is nothing to do buy attempt a home loan modification, things have gotten bad.
Even with these two situations helping the lenders in the housing market, home prices are still lower. This is very concerning to anyone who thinks the housing market is going to recover in the near term.
