One must be wary of companies stating they buy homes for cash or offer instant refinancing. Many of these companies are out to take your home through fraudulent means. Some of them purport to allow you to be bailed out of your delinquent payments by their company and remain in your home as a renter, with the opportunity to buy it back later. But this is just a ruse to take control of your equity in your home, borrowing against it. Your buy back never materializes. Another scam is being asked to sign paperwork that is supposedly to allow the company to negotiate with your lender on your behalf, but in actuality are documents to transfer ownership to that company. The homeowner is eventually evicted from their own home by the unscrupulous company. Perhaps one of the most common and legitimate sounding one is the company that takes upfront fees to negotiate a loan modification for you with your lender and keep your house from foreclosure. In actuality, they may make several phone calls and have you fill out paperwork, but do little else to avoid your house from being foreclosed.
