“Too often, home owners receive inaccurate information about foreclosure and do not really understand the long term affects it can have,” continued Alfredo Vizcarrondo, President of AV Group and Founder of AV Counseling Services.
Miami, FL (PRWEB) December 16, 2009
An established group of South Florida real estate professionals, led by Alfredo Vizcarrondo, have joined together to form a non-profit counseling center called AV Counseling Services. The center, which officially opens to the public on Wednesday, December 16, 2009, will offer free, professional foreclosure and short sale advice and honest guidance.
Mr. Vizcarrondo is certified in Foreclosure Intervention and Default Counseling. Additionally, he has completed the Neighborhood Works America training and certification – a national program created by Congress, which is designed to create opportunities for people to live in affordable homes, improve their lives and strengthen their communities. "Our promise is to provide sincere and accurate advice without charging consultation fees,” said Alfredo Vizcarrondo, President of AV Group and Founder of AV Counseling Services. “We believe there is no one-size-fits-all approach to foreclosure - every situation is different. Our doors are open to everyone from experienced investors to foreign and first-time home buyers, regardless of their citizenship, capacity, or knowledge of the market.”
The decision to form AV Counseling Services was based upon the increasing need for free, professional advice to avoid the serious consequences of foreclosure. The new center is located in Brickell at 175 SW 7th St. (Latitude) Suite #1614 and has about ten experts who offer a wide range of real estate support including foreclosure prevention and short sale solutions. Additionally, AV Counseling Services is capable of assisting with all mandatory processes. In November 2009 alone, lenders filed more than 7,000 notices against property owners in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties, according to report from Condo Vultures. In fact, South Florida is on pace for nearly 97,000 foreclosure filings this year, up from 75,000 in 2008.
“Too often, home owners receive inaccurate information about foreclosure and do not really understand the long term affects it can have,” continued Alfredo Vizcarrondo, President of AV Group and Founder of AV Counseling Services. “There is a misconception out there that anyone can just walk away from their home, leaving it to be foreclosed on, without any consequences. Our aim is to help educate home owners on the foreclosure process and help them find a solution in order to avoid seriously damaging their credit.”
AV Counseling Group, a non-profit sector of AV Group, is a counseling center directed by highly specialized real estate professionals. Founder Alfredo Vizcarrondo has vast experience working with foreign clients and non-residents, and is able to facilitate and simplify necessary procedures for added convenience.
