Loan servicers have quite a reputation. They collect mortgage payments and keep the records and they have no concern other than to keep profit coming. In these times when homeowners are faced with foreclosure crisis, they play a very vital role.

In the previous year, almost one million properties have gone through foreclosure. This is not expected to stop in the next few years, but rather, is expected to further increase in number. When that happens, the country will be facing a worse economic situation.

Despite the numerous efforts of various sectors, the foreclosure crisis still persists. None of the solutions seems to work.

Ocwen, one of the biggest subprime loan servicers in the country, has come up with an approach that could probably put an end to the foreclosure problem.

The loan servicer used to have an unimpressive reputation. Its clients have complained about unnecessary fees and unresponsiveness. Now, it might be able to redeem its reputation and help keep troubled homeowners in their homes.

Many times in the past, the company offered options to delinquent borrowers so they could catch up on missed payments. Now that the housing economy is problematic, the same system could prove to be tedious.

To cope with the times, Ocwen reprogrammed its computers in such a way that they could reveal the best way to haul out value from loans, whether dropping rates, cutting principal or changing from adjustable to fixed rates. Thus, almost 100 percent of the time, Ocwen successfully devises an affordable payment plan.

Ocwen also provides loan modification options for secondary home owners those who purchase homes as investments. That is a win-win situation both for Ocwen and the homeowner, and the tenants of these investment homes are likewise benefited.

The foreclosure prevention measures taken by Ocwen prove that while the company seeks to gain profit, the economy and public welfare need not be compromised.
