Help the community by answering this question:


Your loan modification if you are now on a permanent mod program... will not be affected.

However is your home now worth more than what you owe...

will you have to short sale your home? You can short sale and buy another home if that is the case...

But it sounds like you have equity in your home....

So just treat it like a regular sale. Your loan modification program will not be affected.

Great question. You don't have to contact your lender unless you feel you may owe more on your home than what it's worth.

I can help you find comparable sales in your area and give you a rough idea of what your home is worth. This will let you know if you can do a traditional sale or will need to do a short sale.

Let me know if I can help you!

Not afraid to talk to lender, I'm just thinking about selling and buying a different home and was just curious about some things. Thanks for your help.

No. You would just get a payoff letter once you get close to settlement. Have you finished interviewing Realtors and where are you moving to?

One of the steps in Selling, is that your Title Company or Attorney will call your Lender to get the :Pay-Off" on your Loan.
But, aside from that, why are you so afraid to communicate with your Lender? Do you think they will raise your rate, or foreclose on you if they know you are selling?
It's a little like childbirth; it happens all around, every day.
