Submitted By Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo will host a free Home Preservation Workshop in Richmond for Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, Wells Fargo Financial and Wells Fargo Home Equity customers facing financial hardship. The bank has invited more than 11,000 mortgage customers within a 100-mile radius of Richmond to the free, two-day workshop which will be held on Wednesday, March 7 and Thursday, March 8, 2012, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., at the Craneway Pavilion, 1414 Harbour Way South, Richmond. Parking is free.
"Although less than two percent of homeowner-occupied loans in our servicing portfolio have resulted in foreclosure sale over the past year, we understand that some of our customers are going through difficult times during this economic recovery," said Jim Foley, president of Wells Fargo's Greater Bay Area region. "During this two-day workshop, Wells Fargo home mortgage customers, who are faced with payment challenges, will have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with our home-preservation specialists to explore the options available to them. Our goal is to help as many people as possible keep their homes." This is the third Home Preservation Workshop Wells Fargo has hosted in the East Bay over the last three years."
More than 100 Wells Fargo home retention team members, including bilingual specialists, will be present to assist customers. Where possible, borrowers will receive a decision on a workout, loan modification or other options, on site or shortly after the workshop.
Options include Wells Fargo's own loan modification program and the federal government's Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP). This is the seventh scheduled workshop hosted by Wells Fargo in 2012. Wells Fargo has met with more than 32,000 customers at 55 Home Preservation Workshops since September 2009 nationwide.
Following the workshop in Richmond, Wells Fargo will hold the next workshops of 2012 in Los Angeles (March 14 - 15) and Las Vegas (March 21).
Customers across the country facing mortgage payment difficulties can also call 1-800-678-7986 for potential options to avoid foreclosure.
Walk-ins are welcome at the Richmond event but registration is strongly recommended to guarantee a one-on-one meeting with a representative. Sign up by Monday, March 5, 2012 at www.wfhmevents.com/leadingthewayhome.
