Wells Fargo hosts Home Preservation Workshop

Wells Fargo & Company is hosting a free Home Preservation Workshop in Phoenix for Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, Wells Fargo Financial, and Wells Fargo Home Equity customers facing financial hardships. Wells Fargo has invited more than 2,600 mortgage customers in the Phoenix area to the free workshop which will be held on Tuesday, April 23 from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m., at the Phoenix Convention Center, South Building Ballroom, 33 South 3rd St., in Phoenix.  Parking and attendance are free.

Walk-ins are welcome, but registration is strongly recommended in order to guarantee the ability to meet one-on-one with a representative.  Sign up by midnight on Sunday, April 21, at www.wfhmevents.com/leadingthewayhome. For more information call 1-800-405-8067.

“Although less than two percent of homeowner-occupied loans in our servicing portfolio have resulted in foreclosure sale over the past year, we understand that some of our customers are going through difficult times during this economic recovery,” said Pam Conboy, Lead Regional President for Wells Fargo Arizona.  “During this free workshop, Wells Fargo home mortgage customers who are faced with payment challenges will have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with our home preservation specialists to explore the options available to them.  Our goal with this event is to help as many people as possible preserve their homes.”

This is the fifth Home Preservation Workshop Wells Fargo has hosted in Arizona, and the fourth in Phoenix since 2009.

About 75 Wells Fargo home retention team members – including bilingual specialists – will be on hand at the upcoming workshop to assist customers. Where possible, borrowers will receive a decision on a workout, loan modification, or other options, on site or shortly following the workshop.

Options include Wells Fargo’s own loan modification program and the federal government’s Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP). This will be the eighth scheduled workshop Wells Fargo will host in 2013. Wells Fargo has met with more than 40,000 customers at 89 Home Preservation Workshops since Sept. 2009 nationwide.

Customers across the country facing mortgage payment difficulties can also call 1-800-678-7986 for more information about potential options to avoid foreclosure.
