Each edition is filled with charts, graphs, and analysis of the Tallahassee real estate market.
I have always stressed that reader feedback is critical to guiding the content of the Tallahassee Real Estate Blog. Yesterday, I received a comment from a reader "EPN" that was so great to see, and it also gives notice that a program is available (and underutilized) for some residents in Leon County, Florida.
About a month ago, I wrote a blog entitled "Foreclosure Relief Assistance In Leon County," regarding a new program designed to help people living in certain parts of Leon County who were behind on the mortgage payments for their principal residence. Here is what "EPN" had to say:
I've been a reader of your blogs and recently came upon some information that has really helped me. You had a link in one of your blogs referring to the Leon County foreclosure assistance program. My wife and I unfortunately are in a position to need this type of assistance and we qualify.
So, I am so thankful that you published this information and I happened upon it a few weeks back. I was told that not many people have applied, so either that is because not many people need/qualify or it is because not many know about it.
Anyways, just wanted to let you know about this, and perhaps suggest that you dedicate a blog to this again for everyones benefit.Take care. EPN
I can tell you, I love it when somebody benefits from an article here on the Tallahassee Real Estate Blog. I'm always hoping that we will get more feedback, so positive or negative, please do not hold back. There is a comments section at the end of each blog so send us a note.
As a review, the Leon County Foreclosure Assistance Program is part of a grant earned by the County and is geared to assist certain residents of Leon County in two key areas:
- Foreclosure Prevention Assistance (www.myLeonHome.org)
- Down-Payment Assistance for first-time home buyers (www.LeonHousing.org)
Both of the opportunities are for people living in Leon county, but outside of the city limits (unincorporated areas of Leon County). Eligibility for the programs is determined by various criteria, including income levels and home valuations. If you would like complete details, you can download a copy of the Leon County Foreclosure Assistance Blog Article or link to the information by clicking here.
