NACA’S MOST SUCCESSFUL HOME OWNERSHIP EVENT IN U.S. HISTORY RETURNS TO MIAMI

 WHAT: NACA’S MIAMI AMERICAN DREAM EVENT
WHEN: Friday, July 24th through Tuesday, July 28th, 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
WHERE:
Miami Beach Convention Center, 1901 Convention Center Drive, Miami Beach, FL 33139

(June 25, 2015– Miami, FL ) – NACA (Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America), the nation’s largest HUD Certified non-profit, will be conducting its only 2015 American Dream Tour Event in South Florida Friday, July 24th through Tuesday, July 28th, 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. each day at the Miami Beach Convention Center. This event is for both homeowners with an unaffordable mortgage and homebuyers wanting to purchase a home using NACA’s “Best in America” mortgage.

NACA’s American Dream Tour event gives homeowners the unique opportunity to meet face to face with their lender on-site to obtain an affordable same-day solution because of the legally binding agreements NACA has with all the major lenders plus investors Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Many homeowners have their interest rate reduced to as low as 2% and possibly receive a principal reduction, saving hundreds and sometimes more than a thousand dollars a month on their mortgage payment. 

“Millions of homeowners across the country still have a great need for help, so NACA continues to be relentless in advocating for homeowners” states Bruce Marks, Founder and CEO of NACA. “NACA continues to provide affordable modifications nationwide.  We do not take no for an answer and encourage the homeowners to join NACA in advocating for affordable solutions.”

Homeowners with Bank of America loans can still potentially benefit from last year’s $17 Billion mortgage settlement with the Justice Department. Homeowners with loans from any major lender can also benefit from the terms of the National Mortgage Settlement as well as other settlements. Since all of NACA’s services are free, homeowners have everything to gain and nothing to lose.

ALL NACA SERVICES ARE FREE OF CHARGE.

Home buyers can qualify at the event for NACA’s Best in America Mortgage with no down payment, no closing costs, no points or fees. Everyone receives the same below market interest rate without consideration of their credit score, but based on their individual circumstances. Homeowners and homebuyers can again realize the dream of affordable homeownership.

For documents needed and to register, go to www.naca.com or call 801-606-6222.  Walk-ins are welcome.

NACA’s Home Save and Purchase programs have been highlighted on the national and local news as the most effective in providing affordable homeownership, including the recent history making Detroit Neighborhood Initiative:

NACA SOCIAL MEDIA GUIDELINES – MUST READ BEFORE POSTING

The following are the guidelines for this Forum and all NACA social media, including Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Pinterest, NACA Radio and Live Chat:

The following rules have always been posted near the top of the Forums page on the forum website at http://forums.naca.com, just above the links to the five forum categories:

Welcome to the NACA Forums! Please keep in mind that this is a public forum. Any derogatory, inflammatory or questionable content will be removed by administrators. Also, please DO NOT post any personal information, such as passwords, NACA ID numbers, or Social Security numbers; NACA Staff will never require this information on the Forums.

Disregard for the rules of the Forum and abuses of the Forum and other social media in general is not tolerated. Such activity hinders the effectiveness of the NACA social media efforts as tools for asking questions, sharing information and for those who are seeking help with problems in either the Home Save or Purchase programs. To prevent such abuses, the following rules apply for this Forum and all NACA social media:

F(orum) comes before E(mail):

Maybe not in the alphabet, but here in the forum, F comes before E. In other words, please post your question in the Forum rather than circumvent the system and send an Email to an address you happen to find in the forum. The forum exists for several purposes, not the least of which is the sharing of information that may be beneficial to many of our members.

Most of the questions we receive are more generic in nature than most people think. By posting a question in the Forum first, it can be most likely answered here in the Forum unless it involves specific information in your file. By handling the question or problem here whenever possible, other members experiencing a similar problem could get the answer and help they need more quickly and without making a single additional keystroke.

If your post does require specific information, you will be advised on the best means of contact with us so any personal information can be communicated securely and confidentially.

The Forum Does Not Replace NACA Services:

The NACA Forum or other NACA social media are in no way a substitute for NACA Counseling and Advocacy services whether in the Home Save or Purchase Programs, and information found here should not be considered a replacement for communicating with a NACA counselor, Member Services rep or any other NACA representative. While much of the information here is general in nature and applicable to most situations, specific questions regarding your file cannot be addressed in this or any other public forum for privacy reasons. Additionally, every file has unique factors and issues of its own. Therefore, you should always attempt to communicate your questions and concerns with your Mortgage Consultant in the Purchase Program and with a Counselor,  Member Services or other Member Assistance Program (MAP) representative. Our Member Services Department can be reached at 425-602-6222 from 8am to 6 pm Eastern Time Monday through Friday.

Keep it Civil:

Another serious issue is the tone used in some messages. We eagerly invite anyone who is having what they perceive to be any sort of problem with the NACA process or on line system to use the NACA Forum and social media channels as a means of reaching out to us with those concerns so we can help solve them in whatever way we can.  However, please remember to compose your message in the same manner in which you would like to receive the response. As noted above, “derogatory, inflammatory or questionable content” has always been grounds for posts to simply be deleted without response, and will continue to be so. Deletion of any and all messages from any individual or group of people is at the sole discretion of the Forum administrators. This includes sarcasm as well as insulting and accusatory statements. While we are in fact eager to help with any problems that may occur, if you can’t write without being cynical, you may want to hold off a bit until you can be more rational in expressing your concerns.

No Personal Information:

While this one should be common sense, it is surprising how many people will post their name, NACA ID number and even their telephone number in a forum post or even on Facebook. Please remember that what you write here can be read by anyone on the internet. This is not a membership-restricted site, so please do not post any information about yourself here that you would not announce over a microphone to a crowd of twenty thousand people. Again, that personal information starts with and includes your NACA ID number. Never post it or any other personal information in a public forum, here or anywhere else on the web.

Oh, By the Way, Who Am I Talking To?

Under other circumstances, this would actually be funny. We far too commonly receive emails from members who go to substantial effort to make sure they have provided a wonderfully detailed explanation of their problem or question to insure we have all the information necessary to address their concerns… Then forget to include their NACA ID number, leaving us in the dark or doing detective work to find out which file we are dealing with.

It’s really a simple, common sense rule. NEVER post your ID in a public place, but ALWAYS include it, every time, in private communications such as an email or the Live Chat system available through our website.

One Way or Another:

While we realize you intend to be thorough by doing so, posting the same message to the Forum, our Facebook page, and emailing it to a Forum administrator is actually counter-productive. Most likely, all three messages will go to the same person, which means answering the same question for the same person three separate times. This redundancy only slows down our response time to you and everyone else we are trying to help. So please limit yourself to one method when communicating with us.

Once is Enough:

Likewise, posting the same message in multiple threads in the Forum will have the same effect as posting through several different media.

Each still has to be addressed and responded to separately, which only slows down our response time and can confuse members who may then falsely think that they have read the entire thread previously and possibly miss out on some important information that could have a bearing on their own file.

Similarly, multiple messages each day with minor or random questions bog things down too. We want to answer those questions for you, but in such a circumstance, please send them all in one daily message if possible.

By posting in this Forum, you certify that you have read and agree to abide by these rules.  Failure to comply with these rules will result in the deletion of offending posts and the writer potentially being banned from this Forum and other NACA social media.

As you can see, these are really just common sense rules, largely based on common courtesy. Abiding by these guidelines will help the NACA staff help you in whatever means possible and encourage a positive, free flow of information through this Forum, which is its most fundamental purpose.

Thanks!

BRUCE MARKS AND NACA TO RECEIVE PHOENIX AWARD FROM MAYOR REED, SPECIAL PROCLAMATION FROM THE CITY OF ATLANTA AND LETTER OF COMMENDATION FROM GOVERNOR DEAL

 

AWARD CEREMONY 2:00PM FRIDAY AT NACA EVENT

 

(ATLANTA, GA – May 14, 2015) – Bruce Marks and NACA (Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America) will receive the Mayor of Atlanta’s highest award, the prestigious Phoenix Award, a special proclamation from the Atlanta City Council and a Letter of Commendation from Governor Nathan Deal’s office recognizing NACA’s work in saving thousands of homes from foreclosure in the Atlanta area.

 

All three awards will be presented at a special ceremony to be conducted during the first day of NACA’s American Dream Event which opens Friday at AmericasMart, Building 3.  The ceremony will be at 2:00pm Friday, May 15th. Melissa Mullinax, Senior Advisor to Mayor Kasim Reed, will present both honors on behalf of the City of Atlanta, and Joyce McKibbon, former Mayor of the City of Lithonia will present the letter from Governor Deal. The American Dream Event runs through Tuesday, May 19th from 8:00am to 6:00pm each day.

 

“We are deeply honored by this very rare triple recognition,” said Mr. Marks. “Atlanta has always given us a very warm welcome when we have come to do an event here, and the response from both homeowners and home buyers has always been tremendous. We have done more events in Atlanta than any other city in the United States, and our local office is the busiest NACA office in the country. Atlanta has always been one of the key cities in our 27-year fight for homeowners, and this acknowledgement means a great deal to all of us at NACA”.

 

The Phoenix Award is the highest honor an individual or group can receive from the Mayor of Atlanta. The award recognizes outstanding achievements and service to the city, state, nation or world. Recent Phoenix Award winners include individuals such as Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunnus, five-time world heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield, Tyler Perry, WSB-TV Channel 2 journalist Monica Pearson and Turner Broadcasting System Chairman and CEO Philip Kent.

 

The Proclamation from the City Council names May 13 through 19 as NACA Home Ownership Week in recognizing “Bruce Marks’ and NACA’s outstanding achievements and continuing work in creating and preserving home ownership for thousands of Georgians”.

 

In addition, Governor Nathan Deal’s office has issued a special Letter of Commendation recognizing Mr. Marks’ and NACA’s success in saving homes from foreclosure and aiding Georgians in becoming homeowners.  The Governor’s commendation will also be presented at the ceremony by Joyce McKibbon, former Mayor of the City of Lithonia, who in fact purchased her home through the NACA Purchase Program.

 

Several additional leaders from the political, religious and business communities are also expected to be on hand to witness the award presentation on Friday.

 

Mr. Marks has been recognized on numerous occasions nationwide for the work he and NACA have done on behalf of the American homeowner, including Mr. Marks’ being named “Bostonian of the Year” by the Boston Globe in 2007.

THE MOST SUCCESSFUL HOME OWNERSHIP EVENT IN U.S. HISTORY RETURNS TO ATLANTA FRIDAY

(May 8, 2015– Atlanta. GA ) – NACA (Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America), the nation’s largest HUD Certified non-profit, will be conducting its one and only American Dream Tour Event in Atlanta for five days, starting next Friday, May 15th.  The American Dream Tour Event will take place at AmericasMart, Building 3 at 250 Spring Street NW in downtown Atlanta.  Doors will be open from 8:00am to 6:00pm each day.

 

In spite of suggestions to the contrary, a mortgage crisis still exists in the United States. More than seven years after the housing bubble burst, there are nearly one million homes across the country still in some stage of the foreclosure process and seven million homes still seriously underwater with mortgage balances more than 25% greater than the value of the home.  The NACA American Dream Event is the nation’s largest and most effective homeownership event. NACA has conducted more than 150 such events across the country, resulting in more than a quarter-million homeowners receiving affordable mortgage modifications and saving their homes from foreclosure.

 

“Millions of homeowners across the country still have a great need for help, so NACA continues to be relentless in advocating for homeowners” states Bruce Marks, Founder and CEO of NACA. “We do not take no for an answer and encourage the homeowners to continue to advocate. This includes filing complaints with government regulators such as the CFPB to have them monitor the decisions of the lenders.”

 

This will be the only opportunity this year for area homeowners facing foreclosure or with unaffordable mortgages to have an opportunity to meet face-to-face with their lender/servicer to obtain a same day affordable solution.  ALL NACA SERVICES ARE FREE OF CHARGE.
NACA’s American Dream Tour event gives homeowners the unique opportunity to meet face to face with their lender along with a NACA advocate to obtain an affordable solution the same day, thanks to the legally binding agreements has with all the major lenders plus investors Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Many homeowners have their interest rate reduced to as low as 2% and possibly receive a principal reduction, saving hundreds and sometimes more than a thousand dollars a month on their mortgage payment.

 

This will be NACA’s one and only event in Atlanta during 2015, so it is crucial that everyone in the area take advantage of this opportunity to meet with their lender for a same-day solution to their unaffordable mortgage.

 

Homeowners with Bank of America loans can still potentially benefit from last year’s $17 Billion mortgage settlement with the Justice Department. Homeowners with loans from any major lender can also benefit from the terms of the National Mortgage Settlement as well as other settlements. Since all of NACA’s services are free, homeowners have everything to gain and nothing to lose. 
NACA’s Purchase Program will also be highlighted at the event, including the game-changing 15-year Freedom Loan introduced last September. This historic mortgage program allows homeowners to build personal wealth rapidly through a shorter term loan that starts with a lower interest rate than a standard 30-year mortgage, plus features an aggressive interest rate buy down feature that allows the interest rate to be lowered to virtually zero.

 

Just as with NACA’s 30-year mortgage, home buyers who qualify at the event for NACA’s Best in America Mortgage do so with no down payment, no closing costs, no points or fees. Everyone receives a below market interest rate without consideration of their credit score, but based on their individual circumstances. Homeowners and homebuyers can again realize the dream of affordable homeownership. For documents needed and to register, go to www.naca.com or call 281-968-6222. Walk-ins are welcome.
