Statesville North Carolina presents Foreclosure Prevention Expo


On April 7th, in recognition of Fair Housing Month , several Statesville NC  area housing organizations and other local businesses gathered at the Statesville Civic Center to offer information to the public on foreclosure prevention.

This deep recession has caused many homeowners to fall behind on mortgage payments because of job loss, reduced work hours, increased living expenses, family illness or other circumstances.  This expo was put together to let homeowners know that there is help available for them.
Several local agencies had printed materials available explaining their options such as The Home Protection Plan offered by the NC Housing Finance Agency , The Obama Administrations and resources from HUD.
Attendees were also able to attend a special presentation given by Lori Margiano, Sr. Project Manager for the Dept. of the Treasury, on foreclosure prevention and the new plans available for homeowners in danger of losing their homes.  Other seminars presented during the afternoon included:  Housing Counselor Program Training, Homebuyer Opportunities in Statesville, NC and Energy Efficiency and Weatherization Program.
Exit Home Team Realty had a booth set up offering hand outs for homeowners on Short Sales and Foreclosure Prevention Resources .
Other agencies that attended are listed with links to their agencies and their resources:
NC Housing Coalition
Department of the Treasury
Community Housing Development Coorp
Statesville Chamber of Commerce

Many opportunities exist for homeowners to avoid foreclosure and our job as Realtors® is to get that information out to those that need it.
Statesville NC has been hit with a large amount of foreclosures just like the rest of the country but this has also created a good opportunity for 1st time home-buyers to purchase a home at a great price with interest rates below 5%.  It is a great time to buy even though others are losing their homes.  I guess you have to take the bad with the good in this case.
Follow the link below for homes in our area below $150,000 including foreclosed properties.
