One of the most important things that you can do for struggling homeowners facing foreclosure is to help them understand and accept the feasibility of keeping their home. These conversations can be very difficult but they are an essential early step in any foreclosure prevention case. In this webinar, the presenters will discuss how to work with clients dealing with foreclosure to assess the best long-term solutions, including loan modification.
What You Will Learn
- How to use the provided checklists and case assessment tools to gather the information you will need to advise your clients about their options (if any) to avoid foreclosure.
- Difficult subjects that may come up in conversations with your clients and how to deal with them.
- How to apply these concepts at different stages of the foreclosure process (pre-default, pre-foreclosure, and after a foreclosure sale has occurred.)
