Secretary Skinner Talks About Seeking Help on WEAA Radio

wealthy-radio_imageSecretary Skinner urged homeowners facing foreclosure to seek help as early as possible by calling the Maryland HOPE Hotline Counseling Network at (877) 462-7555.

“I certainly would encourage people in financial difficulty not to go it alone in terms of working with their lender,” Secretary Skinner said during an interview with hostess Deborah Owens on WEAA-FM Wealthy Radio.  “A counseling agency can be a powerful advocate.”

Secretary Skinner said Maryland’s MD HOPE Counseling Network has helped more than 20,000 homeowners find sustainable solutions that allowed them to stay in their home. In cases where homeowners were too far behind, or they could no longer afford monthly payments, network counselors helped them find what counselors call “soft landings.” A soft landing is a solution that enables a homeowner get back onto their financial feet as rapidly as possible, although it may involve a short sale, deeds in lieu of foreclosure or a cash for keys arrangement.
