  • Beware of Loan Modification Scams: Loan modification scams continue to be a growing problem across the country. Homeowners facing foreclosure are losing their money – and their homes – to loan modification scams. Information is your best defense. If you see the signs of a scam and know the facts, you can protect yourself. Visit to learn more.
  • Learn about your options: The Making Home Affordable website includes opportunities to modify or refinance your mortgage to make your monthly payments more affordable. It also includes the Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives Program for homeowners who are interested in a short sale or deed-in-lieu of foreclosure.


“If I hadn’t found a housing counselor we definitely would have been out on the street” – Peter Shirley, homeowner
