This is the year to take advantage of all the government programs, according to Marshall Carrasco of Marshall realty. Carrasco offers the following tips for homeowners:
1.Government programs to help homeowners are ending at the end of the year “Harp Program, Hamp Program, Hafa expires too.”. These programs must have congressional approval. These programs have been put in front of congress twice and neither time have been approved.
2.Tax Forgiveness act expires the end of this year as well. With congress denying these other programs it doesn’t leave a lot of optimism that this will be extend either.
Keep in mind, as the market improves the government has less pressure to help homeowners.
1.More programs are available to help homeowners today then ever before and I guarantee you we will not have these options in the future.
2.Banks are more lenient on releasing homeowners of all liability on all debt which allows homeowners a fresh start.
3.All of this creates the perfect storm for homeowners who need help today. This is why if you know anyone who needs help, let them know that it is time to TAKE ACTION NOW.
