Many families throughout the Garden State are still struggling in the current housing markets says Congressman Jon Runyan. This Saturday, the Representative from New Jersey host his 2nd annual Burlington County housing expo at the Kennedy Center in Willingboro.

“Across New Jersey, the communities struggling most to rebound from the housing crisis are those in our state’s southern counties, Burlington among them,” says Runyon. “Foreclosures devastate families and destroy communities, and many struggling homeowners are unaware of their options. This housing expo will help homeowners understand the foreclosure process and the options that are available to them.”

Approximately 400 people attending last year’s event. Some of the attendees were actually able to get their mortgages modified on-site.

Others met with representatives from their loan service providers directly to get answers to their specific questions. Additionally, some were able to meet with housing counselors on their options and learn about assistance programs from government agencies.

“Congressman Runyan understands the value this housing expo has had for so many homeowners in the past and for those who are still struggling and need assistance,” says Stephanie Bittner, NJ Community Outreach Manager, Clarifi (formerly the Consumer Credit Counseling Service of Delaware Valley). “Clarifi supports his mission in helping as many constituents as possible and applauds his ongoing efforts.”

The expo will be from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Representatives from several federal, state, and local agencies will be in attendance, along with loan servicers and housing counseling agencies.
