Foreclosure help coming to an arena near you

Looking for a mega foreclosure prevention event? Put March 5 on your calendar, because that's when one will be coming to the Show Place Arena in Upper Marlboro, sponsored by Prince George's County, HUD and several other agencies and groups. You don't have to be a county resident to attend.

Tommie Thompson, director of the county's Department of Housing and Community Development, says 13 national loan servicers will be on hand to talk to people about foreclosure prevention and refinancing. The event is also geared toward homebuyers who want extra information about mortgages -- to avoid getting into a loan they're ill-suited for, as so many have before them.

To register: 800-CALL-FHA.

Thompson said workshops for residents will run from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Servicers will be meeting with government officials in the morning.
