Foreclosures continue, helpful resources at your fingertips

ForeclosureResourceBroForeclosures are expected to continue to rise even as pending home sales rise, says National Association of REALTORS® chief economist Lawrence Yun in his September 1 video.  To help you stay on top of this issue, the IAR Advocacy Program recently developed “The REALTORS® Guide to Foreclosure Resources” a brochure available through the REALTOR® Store free of charge to IAR members (just shipping charges apply). It is full of information on various resources such as:

  • Links to sites that discuss the stages of foreclosure
  • Legal Q&A on short sales
  • Managing foreclosure buyer expectations
  • Recent Illinois laws on foreclosure
  • Information about the federal “Making Home Affordable” program

Also available at no charge is a postcard mailer companion piece entitled, “Help for Illinois Homeowners. Did you know…”  The information lists helpful foreclosure resources and could be used as a marketing piece. The IAR Advocacy Program provides many other free materials to IAR members which explain programs, regulations and help communicate key issues.
