Principle Reduction Modifications

An Overview of the Principal Reduction Alternative (PRA) program:

PRA was designed to help homeowners whose homes are worth significantly less than they owe by encouraging servicers and investors to reduce the amount you owe on your home.


You may be eligible for PRA if:
• Your mortgage is not owned or guaranteed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.

"We'll reduce your principle as long as the loan is not insured by Fannie or Freddie which owns or guarantees a huge majority of mortgages in the country"...thanks for another worthless program! Nevertheless, if you're loan is not in this category - continue reading.

• You owe more than your home is worth.
• You live in the home carrying the mortgage you want to modify.
• You obtained your mortgage on or before January 1, 2009.
• Your mortgage payment is more than 31 percent of your gross (pre-tax) monthly income.
• You owe up to $729,750 on your 1st mortgage.
