The Principal Reduction Alternative


About a half million permanent modifications have gone through HAMP, and 1.7 million trial modifications have been offered, even though the Obama Administration promised HAMP would assist three to four million homeowners. Anecdotally and statistically HAMP has failed.

RealtyTrac reports 2.9 million homes were in foreclosure in 2010, and 2.8 million in 2009, and 2.3 million in 2008. Furthermore, 2011 will see a 20% increase in foreclosure filings - that's above the 3 million mark! As to repossessions: approximately 2,800,000 since 2008, and still growing.

Is there a more effective way to prevent foreclosures?

In the article I explore the Principal Reduction Alternative HAMP (PRA HAMP) and the comparative analysis, offered in a White Paper by Rick Rogers of Rogers Law Group, with the standard HAMP procedures.

The conclusion reached: in many instances, principal reduction through PRA HAMP modalities is a more effective foreclosure prevention solution than just reducing the mortgage interest rate along with the other standard HAMP modalities.
