This is a quick post for those of you out there floundering in all the big foreclosure and short sale mess.
First, this website will let you know the new RULES regarding everyone involved in Short Sales, the Realtors, Attorneys, etc and what they can and can not do. You need to be aware that not all providers know what they are doing. http://business.ftc.gov/documents/bus76-mortgage-assistance-relief-services-rule
Second, if you live in Rhode Island and have not managed to get your mortgage loan modified, and feel you have a legitimate reason for being behind on payments, be sure to use a HUD approved counselor. Here is the page for Rhode Islands' hardest hit. Names, numbers, faqs....all are here. Don't wait until it's too late.
