FREE homeowner foreclosure assistance in Florida

By
Real Estate Agent with Palmcoasting.com Real Estate Corp

Many homeowners today are facing difficult times but help is here.  And it's FREE. 

 Florida Legal Services and the Florida Bar Association have partnered in establishing a toll-free hotline - (866) 607-2187 -  to assist homeowners facing foreclosure.   If you're having difficulty or can see you will be having difficulty in the near future it is *always* best to start a conversation with your lender.   But that can be scary and emotionally taxing.   So, get some FREE help from an attorney that is donating their time to assist you.  More than 10,000 attorneys are volunteering their services!  

If your goal is to stay in your home and/or avoid foreclosure, give them a call.  When you first call you will be asked some questions about your situation.  This will enable the service to place you with the attorney that can best assist you in keeping out of foreclosure.

Scott, thank you for replying.  I wish it was MY idea, and yes, it is a great one.  If they can assist those who actually want to stay in the home it's that much less stress not only on the homeowner but the market as well.

I don't know if they will assist with short sales, but if they do, that certainly will make the process go much smoother since I'm assuming the attorneys know how to handle them properly.  What a load off the Realtor® , seller and buyer!

stopThanks for the Phone Number, I will pass this along to everyone I know.

We have so many foreclosures here in South Florida that they are Auctioning Homes on the Court House steps with what seems like almost three times a month!

Kathy, please do.  

When I was waking up this morning there was some blurb on the news about calling a toll free number and getting an FHA loan at 5.75% even if your credit wasn't the greatest but to call asap, that there weren't that many available.  I missed the phone number.  I've been looking around to see what the heck they were talking about but haven't found anything.  

I sure hope a lot of people take advantage of the phone number I posted in the OP.  I also hope a lot of Realtors® pass along the information and don't just 'take the listing'.
