For a explanation of how to present your numbers per Loan Type and expected Outcomes per Loan Type, click here.  (Pertains to Modifications Only).

Important Notes about Modifications:
Prepare before you start. 
Important: Learn your Loan type first.  Is it Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA, Conventional, or VA?

Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA, VA, and some Conventional Loans give you the opportunity to qualify using Making Home Affordable formulas (see Lesson 1 for formulas).  If you do not qualify using the formulas of Making Home Affordable, look at Lesson
2 for a Traditional Modification.
Note:  Outcomes are different. See Modification F.A.Q.'s Lesson 4.

Conventional Loans.  Always ask the Mortgage Servicer if the Investor (who owns your loan) is evaluating your case based on the Making Home Affordable formula (Lesson 1 below).  If "yes", you can attempt to qualify using one of the formulas in Lesson 1 or Lesson 2.  Please tell the Servicer how you would like to be evaluated (after you read Lesson 1 Step 4 vs. Lesson 2 Step 4).
Note:   Outcomes for this loan type are different. See Modification F.A.Q.'s Lesson 4.

V A Loans: These loans are now following formulas similar to the Treasury HAMP (Making Home Affordable) as well as Traditional formulas described in Lesson 2 below.  To be safe, however, always ask the Servicer first if your case is being evaluated under the Making Home Affordable (Lesson 1). Note:   Also read Modification F.A.Q.'s Lesson 4.
