Help for Harried Homeowners Cuyahoga County continues to lead the state in foreclosures with nearly 14,000 new filings last year. Meanwhile, Lorain County has the fastest five-year growth rate in foreclosures among urban counties while Summit county actually saw a decline of 16% in its foreclosures in 2008. President Obama’s Making Home Affordable plan is meant to help some of them and more who are at risk of foreclosure… some 9 million Americans. On The Sound of Ideas, housing industry experts join us to talk about what help is available for struggling homeowners, how to get it before it’s too late, and warn about new rescue scams. Real help for real people, tomorrow on 90.3.
