Real Estate: CSET to hold foreclosure prevention and mortgage scam workshop

Community Services Employment Training is holding a free foreclosure prevention and scam awareness workshop on Saturday for homeowners who want to save their homes from foreclosure.

The workshop will not be able to help anyone who has already lost their home, organizers said.

Homeowners who have started the foreclosure process or want to learn more are encouraged to attend to the workshop which starts at 9:30 a.m. Saturday at CSET’s main office, 312 NW 3rd Ave., in Visalia.

Those who attend will learn about the foreclosure process, how to communicate with lenders and get information on refinancing and loan modifications. Workshop leaders will also share information about mortgage scams and how to avoid them.

“The free foreclosure prevention and scam awareness workshops will provide guests with information about the foreclosure process and options that will help families stay in their homes,” said Lily Rivera-Graves, the agency’s director of energy and housing. “We hope to help families stay in their homes and avoid falling victim to foreclosure scams.”

Registration is recommended, but walk-ins are welcome. For more information or to register, call (559) 741-4646.

Homeowners who attend are asked to bring a budget showing all household income and expenses.
