Consumers need and deserve the best guidance when making the decision to purchase a home. Buying a home may easily be the largest investment a consumer makes.

Foreclosure is an ugly word that no homeowner ever wants to hear. While the thought of foreclosure is not something you ever plan for, life circumstances sometimes make the threat of foreclosure a reality. Fortunately, NeighborWorks® Pocatello offers mortgage default counseling to anyone in need. The program is designed for homeowners currently in the foreclosure process or even homeowners that feel they may be on the verge of missing mortgage payments. Our mortgage default counselor guides the homeowner through the complicated process. NeighborWorks® Pocatello acts as a mediator between the borrower and the mortgage lender to assist the homeowner in avoiding foreclosure.
There are companies out there offering foreclosure/mortgage default counseling services, but these services come at a high cost and many of these are not legitimate companies; these companies should be avoided. NeighborWorks® Pocatello, on the other hand, is a HUD approved foreclosure counseling agency, and all foreclosure counseling is FREE.
