Washington, DC – February 3, 2010 – (RealEstateRama) — Congressman Sam Johnson (3rd Dist.—Texas) in conjunction with the DFW Home Ownership Preservation Enterprise will host a FREE foreclosure prevention workshop on Saturday, February 27th at 9:00 a.m. in Dallas. The event is open to the public and the press.
“Homeownership embodies the American dream. Unfortunately, cities across the country have seen a decline in homeownership and a rise in foreclosures. North Texas is no different, as total home sales dropped 11 percent in 2009,” stated Johnson, a former homebuilder in the area.
“This workshop will be beneficial for the current homeowner who may have fallen behind on their mortgage payments, individuals who want to learn more about home retention programs, and those who would like to speak with a Housing and Urban Development (HUD) certified counselor. Given the current economic situation, this is one workshop people cannot afford to miss,” said Johnson.
“I want to help educate folks in any of these situations to make sure they are given every opportunity to stay in their home,” concluded Johnson.
Johnson represents portions of Dallas and Collin Counties. To learn more about this event, contact the Congressman’s office in Richardson at 972-470-0892. Press should RSVP to Linda Davis with DFW HOPE at 214-540-6816.
