As a housing professional you’re aware the COVID-19 pandemic has brought an overwhelming amount of anxiety, and homeowners are being impacted in different ways.

There have been several mortgage relief programs implemented to help homeowners experiencing financial hardship. With the abundance of information being shared daily it can be challenging for homeowners to understand their options.

We want homeowners to know that help starts here – with Freddie Mac. I’m sharing with you our new #HelpStartsHere Interactive Guide for Homeowners that provides information and resources on:

    • How mortgage servicers can help clients that have experienced job loss, reduced income, illness or other issues related to COVID-19 that impacts their ability to make their monthly mortgage payment.
    • Understanding forbearance and if it’s the right option.

During uncertain times and financial hardship, knowing the options available to sustain homeownership is vital to making proactive, informed decisions. Freddie Mac values the important work you do, and I hope this guide is beneficial in helping the consumers you serve.
