Don’t lose your home to foreclosure! Talk with your lender or lenders as soon as you can. If you need try to get me or a local agent in your area to help get the documents we need to contact your lender on your behalf. I was able to help next door to my home avoid foreclosure recently. Please see what Yvette had to say on Yelp
“James is very helpful and friendly. We had been trying to do a modification on our home and the lender kept giving us the run around. I reached out to James for help and within a couple days our lender was willing to work with us. Thank you James for all your help.”
I want to help all my community to avoid foreclosure, however reality not everyone gets approved for a modification or a short sale, however we have to try. If you have a Notice of Default or a Scheduled Notice of Trustee Sale you need to call me ASAP 805-748-2262 to see what we can do in the time you have left. If you have equity now and are looking to refinance I just refinanced with Greenlight and they were great to work with. 1-888-668-5932 and get to the refinance department. I just did that in 2015. If you have a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) that is set to reset or is resting soon we need to get you with your lender or another lender to see if we can get your refinanced to help you keep your home and avoid foreclosure.
Please call me,
James Outland Jr
