I’ve Got SIX QUESTIONS for Loan Modification Experts?
I’m not going to lie to you….
Firms offering mortgage modification services and imposing an upfront fee aren’t all that popular at the moment. Like the last time something was this popular, hmmm… I’ve got one… what about those people who sell organs to the highest bidder? No, you’re right… they were more popular than loan modification firms. How about crack dealers? Yeah, that feels about right. The good news is you still have a comfortable lead over Al Qaeda and child predators, so you dodged a bullet there, so to speak.
We’re here to change all that… showcase the loss mitigation industry in the light of truth. Stand united and show the world that for profit loan modification firms are not a danger to society. No, I say. For profit firms offering loan modification services represent all that’s good in the world, well… some of what’s good in the world, quite a bit of… a whole lot of… you get the idea I’m sure.
But surely something should change, right? Everyone I’ve spoken with agrees that the industry should be better regulated, because no matter how many people were “scammed,” no one wants to see any homeowners scammed. So, how can the industry protect the homeowners? How can government regulate the industry to make it safer… without disallowing the advance fee?
What would propose to change? How would you regulate the loan modification industry? Is there middle ground? A compromise? I don’t want to hear the arguments that compare the industry to others, because for one thing, I wrote those arguments, and for another because this is obviously a unique situation with no precedent upon which to look back.
How would you “fix it”? What would you suggest be done… speak up man… this is your chance to contribute from your unique perspective. Come on… it’s important…
