Yes, there are those of you facing difficulties in making the payments on your mortgage at the moment. But it doesn't help to freeze like a rabbit transfixed by a snake. This isn't the way to deal with a problem with your California home loan at all, but refinance might be and it's always worth talking to the mortgage companies to find out more.

Think of it this way, if you've got a problem with making your payments, then the mortgage companies have an even bigger problem. They don't want to lose money in a foreclosure, so there is usually a way to deal with any problems you might be having with a California home loan.

Refinance might be the solution, but it's not the only one.

The first and most obvious thing to look at if you've got problems with a California home loan is refinance. You might have more equity available, it might be possible to get a better interest rate, or to extend the terms or even move to a new teaser rate. It could be in your own mortgage company's best interest to help you to refinance. But the most important thing is that you have to start this process early. As you know, you get the best rates when you've got a good credit rating. So if you can see problems coming then it's best to start the process before those problems affect it.
