Housing Counseling

FISC is approved to offer housing counseling through the National Foundation for Credit Counseling. We offer a variety of housing counseling options.

 

Foreclosure prevention and delinquent mortgage counseling

If you are going to fall behind on your mortgage payments, contact us as soon as possible to get back on track. If you are behind or in foreclosure proceedings, our housing counselor will work with you to get all of the required documentation sent into your lender. We can advise you on the process and what to expect. If you need to talk with someone before moving ahead, call us at 800-366-8161 and ask to talk with our Counselor on Call.

Pre-purchase counseling

We can help you understand the mortgage lending process and what is involved in being a homeowner. For example, it’s important to know how much home you can afford, and still have enough money to do other things. You can also learn more about buying a home through our Homebuyer Education.
