Try to Refinance to a More Affordable Mortgage
Evaluate all options carefully, possibly with professional assistance. Avoid high-rate refinancing loans and do not consolidate other substantial debts with your existing mortgage. (These choices will probably make your problems worse in the long term.)
Reverse mortgages, for older homeowners, reduce or eliminate monthly payments.
