Mortgage help program comes back to Charlotte to help area homeowners in need


NACA's American Dream program is coming back to Charlotte. The Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America helped hundreds of people struggling with their mortgages last year.

Now the program is back at the Charlotte Convention Center Thursday, December 6 through Monday, December 10. Doors to the Convention Center, located at 501 South College Street, will be open from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. each day.

Hundreds of counselors and bank representatives from all of the major lenders will be in attendance at the event. They are there to assist homeowners with on-site loans and on-site loan modifications.

The American Dream Tour also attempts to help those who have lost their home to foreclosure. At the event, homeowners can apply for an Independent Foreclosure Review, which could help those whose lenders participated in wrongful acts.

Homeowners like Junior Laguerre of Charlotte say NACA's American Dream program helped save his home, "From start to finish NACA helped me get my loan down from $1,249 to $587 a month. My interest rated dropped from 6.5 % to 2%."

NACA says it helps homeowners save -on average - between $500 and $1,000 a month on their monthly mortgage payment. Home buyers may qualify for NACA's loan. There's no down payment, the bank pays all closing costs and fees. And you don't need perfect credit. The service is free.

That's right - everything is free.

NACA says the dream of home ownership has become either a nightmare or an illusion for many people. NACA Founder and CEO Bruce Marks says he hopes to help people in Charlotte and the surrounding area hang onto their homes and realize the dream of owning a home.
