Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson unveiled a range of new web-based resources on Monday for the state's active military personnel and veterans.
“Like many Washingtonians, I come from a family of veterans. My late father served in the Navy, both of my grandfathers served in the military, and many of my uncles fought in WWII,” Ferguson said in a news release. “I am proud of their service to our country and I am committed to serving our veterans and active-duty military as Washington’s attorney general.”
If you miss your mortgage payments, you may lose your home through foreclosure. Your lender can use foreclosure as a legal means to repossess your home. If you owe more than your property is worth, a deficiency judgment is pursued. Both foreclosures and deficiency judgments have a negative impact on your future credit. You should avoid foreclosure if at all possible.

California home buyers now have access to a new tool that will tell them if they're eligible for any down payment assistance programs.
In an effort to provide home buyers with up-to-date information about available home buyer assistance programs in their city, the California Association of Realtors has launched California Mortgage Resource Directory, a powerful online search tool that identifies current mortgage programs in communities throughout the state.
The directory is available at mortgage.car.org. This tool aims to make the process of finding and navigating down payment programs fast and easy for potential home buyers.
