What are my chances for approval on a loan modification?
This is one of the most common questions I’m asked by homeowners. There are several factors that go into answering this question. The most important calculation that will determine your chances at modification approval is the front-end ratio.
As part of the modification process, the bank will ask you to send in income documentation and a list of household expenses. This documentation will be used by the bank to calculate your front-end ratio, which is a crucial part of the approval process.
