Counseling Center Open for Fannie Mae Homeowners

Are you behind on your mortgage payments or struggling to make payments? If yes, and you have a Fannie Mae-backed mortgage, you now have another resource in metro Atlanta.

Fanny Mae recently opened the Atlanta Mortgage Help Center, which according to a news release, will offer “free access to high quality counseling and in-person resolution of their particular mortgage circumstances.”

Counseling will be completely free and will take you through mortgage workout options and foreclosure alternatives. Counselors can also help you prepare and submit the required paperwork for the federal government’s Making Home Affordable Program.

In the past six months, similar centers have popped up in Miami and Chicago.

Borrowers who want to schedule an appointment at the Mortgage Help Center should call 866-442-8573 or e-mail:
