    Servicers can make $10,000 to foreclosure sale $200k home per BusinessWeek.

    4/21/10 Highlights
    Once a loan is 90 days or more overdue, servicers charge processing and foreclosure fees along with markups for attorneys, appraisers and other services. That’s on top of monthly late fees that can run as high as 5 percent of the mortgage payment. A foreclosure on a $200,000 mortgage may result in $10,000 or more of income for servicers, who get paid before mortgage investors.

    Servicers can easily make 10 times any of the government stipends being offered by simply foreclosing on the house. The mortgage investors will take a loss from a foreclosure or a short sale, but not the servicers who are first in line to be paid from the proceeds of the sale.

    Servicers love loans that are in default for an extended period of time. They are cash cows.

    No surprise. This industry is almost as crooked as our government.

I didn't feel alone anymore, I have tried to give back and counsel those that haven't walked in my shoes yet. We hear so much about what is wrong with America, I just wanted you to know, you are whats "right" with America."
