Sometimes you don’t want to be #1. And we were extremely happy to hear earlier this month that Las Vegas has dropped to #5 for the highest foreclosure rate in the U.S.
The positive drop is being attributed by many to the Nevada Foreclosure Mediation Program, including Channel 8’s LasVegasNow.com (“Nevada No Longer Leads in Foreclosures”) and on SEC Realty’s real estate blog.
With 75 new mediators recently added to the already existing team of 95 mediators, there are now 170 foreclosure mediators helping Nevada homeowners sit down with their mortgage lenders and figure out solutions that enable them to stay in their homes and avoid foreclosure.
