Wells Fargo is making every effort to keep people in their homes through the federal Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) and the company’s own modification programs focused on mortgage payment relief.

As of March 31, Wells Fargo modified 665,000 mortgage loans since the beginning of 2009 – 85 percent were done through Wells Fargo’s own modification programs outside of HAMP.

Ninety-two percent of Wells Fargo’s mortgage customers remain current on their loan payments and the company’s delinquency and foreclosure rates are three-fourths that of the industry. As a result, fewer than 2 percent of the loans secured by owner-occupied homes and serviced by Wells Fargo proceeded to a foreclosure sale in the last 12 months.
