Foreclosure prevention programs

Are you facing foreclosure?
Are you at risk of default?

    • Available to homeowners within Seattle city limits
    • Homeowners with delinquent mortgages, property taxes, and/or HOA dues are encouraged to apply
    • Applications are submitted via a foreclosure counselor

*Income restrictions apply based on household size.

HomeSight is pleased to announce we are partners with the Washington State Housing Finance Commission and Pierce County Human Services to help you stay housed and support families in our community.  HomeSight has $1,260,000 in foreclosure prevention mortgage assistance grants of up to $7,500 each to help over 160 qualified homeowners who are behind on their loan payments.

Many families are facing housing instability due to the pandemic’s economic challenges and Pierce County and HomeSight may be able to help. If you are struggling to make mortgage payments due to layoffs, reduced hours, and/or the need to care for children who are not in school. For some, having residents in the home for more hours of the day has increased household expenses, including food and utilities.

To qualify the assisted Homeowner:

    • Must own a home in Pierce County with fee simple title that is occupied as their primary residence since March 1, 2020
    • Must be over 15 days past due on their mortgage since March 1, 2020. (Homeowners in default prior to March 1, 2020 are not eligible for assistance)
    • Must self-certify loss of income or hardship
    • Does not need a credit score to qualify.
    • Must have an annual household income that does not exceed 120% of Area Median Income

Family Size (120% of AMI)

1 Person ($72,700)
2 People ($83,000)
3 People ($93,450)
4 People ($103,800)
5 People ($112,200)
6 People ($120,450)
7 People ($128,750)
8 People ($137,000)

It could be loss of job or some other impact – you got ill and couldn’t work, or a family member was ill.  Basically, if you’re behind, your income is below 120% AMI, you own your house, and you’ve had a COVID-related impact, you can get assistance for up to four months of delinquent payments not to exceed $7,500.
