    The whole loan modification plan is a joke. Most people that have applied for the program express disappointment that the banks didn’t help them at all. My advice is to just walk away and save the money that you have now because sooner or later you will lose your home guaranteed!

    Good idea walk away. Real estate is dead, the greedy, and people that took a chance will never recover, and lost I believe most ca markets with take ten years to recover, it’s better to rent, stop looking at the real estate ads. Enjoy life.

    I totally agree! We tried to modify with EMC which is now JP Morgan for over two years, nothing happen. They will not help us. It’s a waste of time to go there,guaranteed they cant help .

    I am feeling the same way. I have been denied 3 times with EMC. I have tried to get help through NACA…still nothing. I am not willing to give up just yet though. Hang in there and don’t give up hope you guys. I too have been going through this for about 2 years. Each time I get a different answer, but none that makes sense. I even got help through Chase and they said I qualified for the plan and there was no way I should be turned down, but again I was turned down. So I am hoping that I get someone that has a heart (smile)
