Is your mortgage in an upside down situation? Well do not press the panic button yet. It is a great consolation to know that you are not alone in this predicament. Many homeowners these days are also under water on their mortgages. Although you are walking on a tight rope, there are still some ways to remedy the situation. The following options are always available for you:

In these days banks have their hands full of foreclosures and they do not want to add more to their growing numbers of foreclosed properties; that is why they are more willing to help troubled homeowners with their upside down mortgages. One way is thru rehabilitation of your mortgage. If you talk with your lender and try to offer some work out plan, there is a big chance that they will give you a fair chance, and there will be less chances of foreclosure. Although it is not 100% sure that your work out plan is agreeable to them, they will surely have a viable solution for your situation.

Remember, it is a very bad idea not to communicate with your lender when your mortgage is in trouble. As long as you keep the line of communication open with your lender, there is a great possibility that you will be able to save your property and most of all your credit standing. Doing otherwise means definite foreclosure.

Other workout alternative is always available for you as a borrower. You may opt for a forbearance deal. Here you will be allowed by the lender to postpone your payments for a certain period, agreed by you and the lender, with the arrangement you will update your loan, make it current and resume your regular payment schedules after that certain period of time has passed. Of course this option is dependent on your expected sources which might be from employment bonuses, tax refund, insurance and others. If your crunch situation is only temporary, this is a good option to take. This option can also result in the reinstatement of your loan.

Another alternative is thru the repayment plan. This is also ideal if your situation is temporary but you do not have the lump sum money to avail of a forbearance and reinstatement deal. In this case you will have to make your monthly regular payment on time with an additional payment to pay off your overdue account.

The mortgage modification is also one option to consider. Here you may discuss with your lender for an extension of your mortgage which will lower your monthly payments with the same interest rate, but for a longer period of time. This will however result to a bigger interest payment in the end. None the less, you will restore your mortgage and save your property.

It is never too late to negotiate and work out a plan with your lender when you are upside down on your mortgage. All it takes is honesty about your current situation and sincerity of intention to fulfill whatever negotiation you have made with your lender. As long as you are talking with your lender you can always strike a deal.
