We've heard quite a bit lately about different stars who have lost a home (or are in danger of losing a home) to foreclosure... R. Kelly, Diamond, 'Octomon', just to name a few of the many who have gone thru foreclosure.

Now when that happens we all laugh cause we think they have all this money and how can they possibly be in foreclosure - but the reality is that Foreclosure isn't funny.

The last time I looked, there were at least 15,000 people in WNY who currently are in danger of losing their home to foreclosure.

Every year in October, the City of Buffalo holds its annual Foreclosure sale/auction. This year’s sale/auction takes place October 3rd thru 5th at the Convention Center. Over 5,000 properties will be placed up for sale!

If you or someone you know has a home that maybe sold at the City Foreclosure sale/auction, help is available for free this week at County Court, 25 Delaware Ave, Part 27.

If the foreclosure is due to problems with a mortgage, free help is available from HUD's Hope Now Program.

Act today, because foreclosure isn't funny. The worst thing you can do is nothing!
