Southwest Economic Solutions
Foreclosure Intervention Counseling

The foreclosure intervention counseling provided by Southwest Economic Solutions is recognized as the leading program of its kind in the Detroit area because of its effectiveness in helping homeowners avoid foreclosure and keep their homes. We are often the last hope for families in foreclosure. Our professional, bilingual and MSHDA-certified counselors work with homeowners and lenders to renegotiate mortgages into more manageable rates, fees and terms. These arrangements are good for homeowners, good for lenders, and good for neighborhoods because they preserve equity and property values.



Our foreclosure prevention counseling services are available to low and moderate income homeowners. The services are free. Our counselors are MSHDA-certified and bilingual, and experts on the loan products and relief programs available to homeowners.

We serve homeowners throughout the metro Detroit and tri-county area.

We can often help you keep your home. But even when Southwest Economic Solutions cannot prevent the foreclosure, our counselors can assist you in many other ways, including helping you to find affordable housing and build a better financial future.

Southwest Economic Solutions is located at 3627 Vernor Highway, Detroit, MI 48216. To learn more or schedule an appointment, call us at 313.841.9641 or email us.
