Wisconsin Realtors Association develops foreclosure assistance center
A new online resource developed by the Wisconsin Realtors Association is designed to help consumers take steps to avoid foreclosure or navigate through the process for a better outcome. “The possibility of going through foreclosure is the last thing consumers think about when they buy a home, but unfortunately it’s the situation thousands of Wisconsin homeowners are facing today,” said Joe Murray, director of political and governmental afffairs for the Wisconsin Realtors Association. “As a trusted source of advice and counsel, we created this resource to help homeowners achieve a better outcome when faced with difficult choices. The reality is that banks don’t want to have to go through the time and expense of the foreclosure process, so there is much more opportunity to negotiate new terms and hold on to your home.” For more information, visit the Wisconsin Foreclosure Assistance Resource Center at www.wisconsinforeclosurekit.org.
