Is this right with load modifications are banks really letting people get buy with this?
This really upsets me.
in 2002 we bought new construction home, our neighbor Bud bought his home the same time same price of 150k each. I put 20k down and got a interest rate of 6.75%, Bud my neighbor did not put anything down and got a 7.5% apr. In 2006 Bud got a cash out refinance and cashed out 60k but his new rate was 8.75. With that extra income he bought a boat, went on exotic vacations, big pool in his back yard. he tried to convince us to line us up with his lender at Saxon mortgage so we could cash out. I did not feel like it we have nice things as both myself and my wife worked our tails off. A year ago Bud was laid off of his job he then stomped around, well a few months later he got another job that paid him much more and he was back to spending. Three months ago he tried to modified his loan with Saxon mortgage, they came back and said his income is enough to support his payments. He waited six weeks to file again but he made up a check stub showing a lower salary and also threaten if they do not help him he will walk away from the home. The home is worth now 130k. Well the company gave in and agreed to modified his rate to 3% 800 dollars off a month, his payment is now lower then my payment. He is planning on taking his wife to Bali this winter with the savings. In my opinion it is like he stole 80k., is this what banks are doing
