Frontier urges Kentucky citizens to seek qualified housing counselors during National Homeownership Month

June 20th, 2014

Morehead, KY – This June, Frontier Housing urges Kentucky community members considering homeownership or looking for help with their current housing needs to seek out qualified housing counseling and education organizations.

“During National Homeownership Month and throughout the year, we must do all we can to ensure homeownership is not built on quick sand. Being as prepared as possible before taking on the responsibilities of homeownership is critical, and that’s where NeighborWorks® housing counseling comes in,” said Sherry Farley, President and CEO of Frontier Housing.

NeighborWorks® housing counselors can help prospective homebuyers access down payment assistance grants, put together a solid budget that clearly outlines housing and other expenses, and be there for homeowners after the home purchase with financial coaching and other help.

“Research released this past March shows how effective NeighborWorks® housing counseling is in reducing the likelihood of serious mortgage delinquency. But if a homeowner has fallen behind on his or her mortgage, foreclosure prevention counseling can also help,” said Farley.

With the help of a counselor, a homeowner can work with his or her lender to develop a reasonable action plan that will offer relief to the borrower. Lenders are often willing to work with a borrower to develop a plan of action designed to put the family back on the financial road to recovery.

More information about the financial education programs offered by Frontier can be found on the web at www.frontierhousing.org or by calling (606) 784-2131.
