Are you struggling to make your loan payments? Foreclosures can shatter family dreams and create a major financial setback for mid-Tennessee homeowners. Receiving a foreclosure notice can provoke fear, anxiety, and even despair. Although numerous Nashville families have had their homes foreclosed in recent years, many others have found alternatives.
If you are facing foreclosure, we can help you take the proper steps to avoid it. Our HUD-certified counselors will help you address your unique situation, assisting you in finding a viable solution to the problem and providing community resources as needed.
We assist mid-Tennessee homeowners in:
Establishing a realistic budget

The federal government and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) have created several loan modification programs for primary residences. A loan modification is a permanent change to one or more of your loan terms to reduce mortgage payments and avoid foreclosure. Possible changes include: a lower interest rate, extending the life of the loan, or lowering the loan principal.
Taking advantage of loan modification opportunities involves a negotiation between you and the lender and we are here to help. Loan modification is a powerful tool in achieving greater home affordability and we can walk you through the process.
