This is the final city in the Western U.S. leg of the NACA tour. Los Angeles, the first city on the Western U.S. tour, drew more than 50,000 homeowners looking for mortgage restructuring relief, and the second and third cities, Phoenix and Las Vegas, drew approximately 40,000 homeowners each.
"We understand the San Francisco Bay Area has been hit especially hard during this sub-prime mortgage crisis, so we are extending the event to five days instead of our usual four," said Bruce Marks, CEO of NACA. "Our free event will be staffed by our hundreds of volunteers, who work with homeowners to prepare a budget that verifies and documents what the homeowners can afford. We then present these documents onsite to our over 200 bank representatives for approval. From past events, we can ensure troubled homeowners that many of them will come away with a lower monthly payment and sometimes even a lower principal."
NACA provides a free effective solution for at-risk homeowners with unaffordable mortgages by permanently reducing the interest rate often to 4%, 3% and 2% and, if necessary, reducing the outstanding principal to what homeowners can afford. NACA can do this because it has secured legally binding agreements with most of the major lenders and servicers, which covers 90% of the at-risk homeowners.
Over 250,000 participants have already participated in the nationwide NACA Save the Dream tour in Cleveland, Chicago, St. Louis, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Phoenix and Las Vegas, providing same day solutions to thousands of homeowners, helping to avoid foreclosure, restructure mortgages, and reduce interest rates.
