Treasury Department Holding Short Sale Workshop in Orlando

On Nov. 2, 2012, The Treasury Department, in collaboration with the National Association of REALTORS®, will hold Making Home Affordable “Help for Homeowners” outreach events in Orlando, Fla. These events will include sessions for real estate agents wanting to learn more about the Treasury Department’s Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives (HAFA) program by providing a live opportunity for seasoned real estate professionals and expert housing counselors to learn even more about short sales as a foreclosure prevention strategy.

Hear directly from Bank of America, CitiMortgage, GMAC Mortgage, JPMorgan Chase, and Wells Fargo on how to get your short sale offers approved, navigate the process more smoothly, and get help with difficult cases. NAR urged the Treasury Department to engage real estate professionals at Making Home Affordable community outreach events to increase participation in the HAFA program and expedite short sales transactions.
