Echo Park is a great community, but we aren’t immune from real estate troubles – foreclosures happen all the time, affecting our neighbors and our neighborhood. The Eastsider LA breaks down the numbers for the area, Echo Park/Silver Lake, citing 120 foreclosed homes in August alone. Which is why the Montebello Housing Development Corporation and Assemblymember Gilbert Cedillo have coordinated to put on another foreclosure event, the Northeast LA Home Rescue Fair, to help educate those at risk of foreclosure.

The rescue fair takes place all day tomorrow (Saturday, September 17, 2011), and will help those at risk for foreclosure get FREE advice so that they can make an informed decision. In addition to bilingual services and informational workshops, the fair will offer one-on-one sessions with loan specialists, HUD-approved housing counselors, and attorneys. You MUST register for the event, so take advantage now by calling 323-722-3955.

Click here for the flyer to learn more about the fair, including a list of what documents you need to bring along with you for the best assistance (eg. loan information, tax returns, bank statements, etc.

Since the Echo Park Improvement Association is co-sponsoring the event, I’ll be volunteering my help throughout the afternoon. If you’re interested in helping out, let me know!
