Sometimes unexpected events can make staying on top of mortgage payments a challenge. If you've been dealing with a legitimate hardship, there are ways we can help you to stay in your home and get back on track financially.
If you are experiencing financial hardship, you may be eligible for mortgage assistance from your state’s housing finance agency or another state or local government agency.
For a list of HUD-approved housing counseling agencies that can provide free foreclosure prevention and debt management information, information on state or local government mortgage assistance programs that may be available, as well as translation or other language assistance, contact one of the following federal government agencies.
For additional information on how to avoid foreclosure, including help for military servicemembers, you may also visit Fannie Mae’s consumer website www.fanniemae.com. Fannie Mae is the owner of your mortgage loan.
If you’re experiencing a hardship and are unable to submit your application online you can print and fax the application including all the pages to (602) 634-2993. You can expect a written response within five business days. If you have any additional questions, you can contact the Mortgage Assistance Department via email at email@example.com or by phone at (602) 335-5676.
A short sale involves selling your home for less than the total amount that you owe on your property; this method is commonly used in an attempt to avoid foreclosure. In order for a short sale to be successful, you must find a qualified buyer, and your lender must agree to accept the sale.
A short sale may be an option for you if are experiencing all of the following:
A short sale negatively impacts your credit — although to a lesser degree than does a foreclosure — so you should explore all of your other options first. We recommend contacting a tax professional to become aware of any tax implications.
If you have a signed contract for a short sale that you would like Define Mortgage Solutions to consider, you can submit the initial online application to start the process or you can also print and fax your application along with the contract and supporting documentation to (602) 335-2994 or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
