  • Each year the government spends about $65 million to provide free counseling services in every community to help people purchase a home, keep their home or manage their debt.
  • "If you are rich or poor and have an adjustable rate mortgage, the best thing you can do is get free expert advice from a trained counselor who is paid just to help you and not to sell you anything. The sooner you do this the more options you will have."
  • "A couple of million households are at risk of losing their house, and they can avoid the problem if they start as soon as possible to take advantage of free counseling services."
  • "50% of the folks who are now in a sub-prime loan can probably get out of the loan and get a good loan that is a lot cheaper."
  • "This is a good time to get out of your Adjustable Rate Mortgage."
  • "People who put ads on TV about refinancing are going to make a lot of money in refinancing your mortgage-probably $8,000, $10,000 or $15,000. Avoid people who are putting ads on TV and radio. A prime or responsible lender will only have total fees of about $3,000."
  • "GET FREE INDEPENDENT COUNSELING BEFORE YOU REFINANCE no matter how many quotes you get."
