Pilot Program Offers Free Guidance to Avoid Foreclosure

AARP volunteers are calling older homeowners in ZIP codes with high foreclosure rates

After medical bills began to pile up, Ben Santoro of Phoenix got behind on his mortgage payments. Starting this month, the AARP Foundation is helping homeowners like Santoro learn how to avoid foreclosure through a federally backed pilot project. — Jason Millstein/Aurora Select

Summary:

  • Phoenix and Las Vegas have been selected for a federally backed foreclosure prevention program.
  • AARP volunteers are calling homeowners in ZIP codes with high foreclosure rates offering guidance on sources of information and contacts with HUD-certified housing counselors.
  • Sixty percent of delinquent homeowners don't seek help in order to avert foreclosure.
