Upcoming Loan Modification and Homeowner Counseling Workshops

HELP is out there for distressed homeowners, and it is FREE.  You do not need to pay anyone to help you avoid a foreclosure, or to modify your loan.  There are FREE HUD approved counselors available to help you, and throughout the state, there are recurring seminars and workshops aimed to help you traverse this housing help maze.

Here are some upcoming dates to know for workshops near the Alameda and Contra Costa County areas:

Save the Dream Tour 
San Francisco’ s Cow Palace .
October 16th – 20th.
See the site for details and what to bring to this event.  This is an event you can get help right away.  Lenders are present and ready to help you modify your loan if you qualify.  From the NACA site:  “NACA has the most effective long-term mortgage solution for at-risk homeowners because it permanently reduces the interest rate and if necessary reduces the outstanding principal based on what the homeowner can afford. NACA’s restructure solution has established the national standard for long-term solutions for thousands of owner-occupant homeowners. NACA can do this because it has secured legally binding agreements with most of the major lenders and servicers, which covers 90% of the at-risk homeowners.

All of NACA’s services are FREE. Homeowners drive and fly from long distances to attend these extraordinary Save the Dream Tour events. NACA had over 500 staff and volunteers who put in long hours and lots of hard work to help so many homeowners save their dream.”

There was a recent article printed in SFGate about these events, though there is a discrepency on location.  The article shows it happening in Richmond, however the NACA site does show Cow Palace.  So please confirm location if you sign up for this event.  FULL SF GATE ARTICLE
