Almost 500 homeowners facing foreclosure met in the Tucson (AZ) Convention Center yesterday and attended workshops and one-on-one counseling sessions with loss mitigators and lenders. Many of these people will keep their homes. Sadly, there was no REALTOR participation at the event. The event was sponsored by Pima County, with partners that include Freddie Mac, HUD, state regulatory agencies, lenders, ACORN, The Urban League, and Legal Aid.
Additional workshops are being planned for Tucson and other locations throughout Arizona.
