  • Leveraging the Latest Distressed Market Trends to Help Homeowners

  • Tuesday, May 20, 2014 | 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. ET
    In this highly informative webinar you’ll learn the latest trends in the housing market and how to leverage those to identify and help homeowners who are in trouble. While foreclosures are down nationwide as lenders turn to other alternatives to dispose of distressed properties, they are still increasing in some markets. And even in markets where new foreclosure activity is decreasing, there are still many homeowners facing the prospect of losing their home through short sale or deed in lieu of foreclosure, and other homeowners who assume the property is lost after receiving an initial foreclosure notice — even though they may still have a chance to keep the home. Presented by Daren Blomquist, Vice President of RealtyTrac.
