Foreclosure Help for Reno-Sparks and Washoe County

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Group One Reno License # 46636

According to the latest report from RealtyTrac, the rate of distressed properties for Reno-Sparks and Wahsoe County went up sharply in January and February.  In January, the Reno-Sparks metro area and Washoe County entered the top ten and, in February, they moved to the eighth position for metro areas with the highest foreclosure filing rate.  Clark County is in the first position.  There are three components to the ranking: an increase in Notice Of Defaults, an increase in Notice of Trustee Sale and the number of foreclosed homes on the market.
 
In response to this increase, Washoe County has posted a Foreclosure Prevention Seminar on their website for homeowners who are facing foreclosure.  The 30-minute video presentation offers advice and information on homeowner rights, time frames and options.  The presentation will also be aired on the Washoe TV Channel.  To watch the Foreclosure Prevention workshop on your television, you will find broadcast times on the Washoe Channel webpage.
 
The direct link to watch the video online is http://www.washoecounty.us/mgrsoff/wctv_online.html.  If you are accessing the information on the Washoe County website, it is www.washoecounty.us.  Select the Washoe County Television, which is located mid-bottom of the page.  On the Washoe Channel page, click on the Video-On-Demand link.  Go to the Search Archives section and type in Foreclosure Help.  There are four videos availaible: Foreclosure Prevention Workshop - English, a Spanish verision, a Seniors video and a video on Nevada Foreclosure laws.
 
President Obama announced the government's action plan for foreclosure prevention earlier in the month.  The plan offers options to help distressed homeowners and homeowners who are not deliquent in payments but need help with lowering their house payments.  In addition, the federal goverment launched a website which offers online tools for homewoners.  The tools will help homeowners determine if they are eligible for the Making Home Affordable refinance and loan modification programs.
