Serving Mission Hills | Pacoima

[11/10/15]  Mission Hills is a community in the North San Fernando Valley that is home to an important historical landmark, the San Fernando Mission Church (pictured left) which was established by the Catholic missionaries.  The Church is a beautiful site and the cemetery is attached.  Mission Hills holds a special place in my heart since my great grandmother and grandfather are buried there.  I remember seeing the church during my great grandmothers funeral and believe me, it is spectacular and is probably one of the oldest Catholic church in the San Fernando Valley.  Brand Park is next to the Mission and has beautiful gardens often used for wedding pictures and venues. 
One of the main attractions is the thoroughfares for shopping along San Fernando Mission Blvd which is also known as Old Town San Fernando.  The complex has an old world charm since it was founded in 1797 by Father Fermin Lausen.  Mission Hills was developed as a subdivision in the early 50's as the defense industry boomed in the Valley.  Holy Cross Hospital was built in 1962 to serve the growth in the area.

Think HAFA when homeowners have been denied a loan modification under the Making Home Affordable program.  Many who live in San Fernando or Mission Hills are at risk of losing their homes through foreclosure may be able to receive help through the Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives Program established by the US Treasury Department. The HAFA Short Sale Program is primarily designed for homeowners with a documented hardship who are unable to afford keeping their home even with if they received a loan modification under the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) or other loan modification program.

Under HAFA, homeowners may be able to avoid a foreclosure by selling the home as a "short sale" (where the value of the home is less than the remaining amount of the first mortgage).  Information on HAFA Short Sales can be found on the federal government's Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives site at: http://makinghomeaffordable.gov/hafa.html.
