Can't afford your home? Letting the bank foreclose is not your best course of action!

Can't afford your home? Letting the bank foreclose is not your best course of action! There is a tendency for people in financial straits to ignore their problem until it is too late.  Don't sit back and do nothing when there are options out there that will do much less damage to your credit and might even allow you to keep your home.

36 On Echo – New Construction in Echo Park There are Echo Park buyers who want a little old California bungalow to call home, but lately I’ve been getting requests for new construction. 36 on Echo is the latest new construction in Echo Park and the first phase is nearing completion. Warning - if you are interested in these, do NOT go without an agent. The sales office staff represents only the seller. No buyer's agent in-tow, No representation for YOU!
