Know someone who lost a home to a foreclosure?

Berkshire REALTOR Anne Meczywor is enrolled in the 2015 NAR Leadership Academy and her team assignment is researching the history of what happened during the foreclosure crisis.  She is hoping you can help… Anne asks “If you or someone you know lost a home to a foreclosure or short sale since 2008 and would be comfortable discussing the experience, please contact Anne Meczywor. (413) 446-2179.   Maybe they didn’t lose the home to one of those scenarios, but otherwise experienced a loss that made them unwilling or unable to buy again. Our conversation will be completely confidential unless they authorize otherwise. I am part of a team researching the history of what happened, why the various refinance “solutions” offers did not work for them and their thoughts on become involved a homeowner again.What are the emotional and/financial considerations of taking that step? – Thanks! Anne”
