Many of the nation’s largest mortgage companies are scheduled to be in attendance including Bank of America, Chase, Citi Mortgage, HSBC, Nationstar, Ocwen, PNC, Select Portfolio Servicing, Seterus, SunTrust, US Bank and Wells Fargo.

Several local, HUD-approved, non-profit counseling organizations will also be on-site to meet with homeowners as well as representatives from federal and state agencies.

Making Home Affordable and HOPE NOW hosted an event at the same location in July 2011 that saw more than 1,300 Florida homeowners receive mortgage assistance. A similar event was also held in Miami, in February of this year that saw over 1,000 attendees.

“This event offers struggling homeowners a unique opportunity to meet face-to-face with their mortgage company and housing experts to discuss real solutions to their mortgage concerns,” said Chief of Homeownership Preservation at the U.S. Department of the Treasury Mark McArdle. “There are already nearly 80,000 families in South Florida that are benefiting from Federal programs to fight foreclosure. Homeowners who attend this event will learn more about their options and next steps to get the help they need.” 

“There are still thousands of homeowners in South Florida struggling with their mortgage payments due to unemployment, under employment, medical hardship or other financial issues, and I encourage all of them to attend this free event. There are many tools available to assist homeowners who are current on their mortgages, as well as those struggling to make their monthly payments. Attendees will get good objective advice, and may even go home with an affordable solution that helps them stay in their home for the long term,” said Eric Selk, Executive Director of HOPE NOW.

HOPE NOW is the industry-created alliance of mortgage servicers, investors, counselors, and other mortgage market participants, brought together by the Financial Services Roundtable, Housing Policy Council and Mortgage Bankers Association, that has developed and is implementing a coordinated plan to help as many homeowners as possible prevent foreclosure and stay in their homes.

The Making Home Affordable Program is a free government program designed to help families avoid foreclosure and strengthen the housing market recovery.  Making Home Affordable offers options to help homeowners modify or refinance their mortgage loan to make their monthly payments more affordable, take a temporary break from their mortgage payments if they are struggling from unemployment, receive targeted principal reduction in certain circumstances or relocate through a short sale or deed-in-lieu of foreclosure.
