Free Mortgage Check-up
Let an NHS Brooklyn housing counselor do a quick review of the terms of your current mortgage to determine whether or not it fits your current financial needs and your future financial goals. The counselor will also compare the interest rate to today's rates to see if a refinance could result in a rate reduction, and check for any adjustable terms or balloon payments that you may not be aware of or remember. At the end of the mortgage check-up, your counselor will either recommend that you explore a refinance or keep your current loan. Complete this form or call 718-469-4679 to request telephone counseling.
