Home Savers Campaign

Home Save Door to Door

The Home Savers Campaign is organizing contract buyers throughout the eastern United States and midwest to stop exploitative contract selling and evictions. The campaign has successfully pressured Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to stop selling foreclosed properties to “as is” sellers. The campaign is focused on large national and regional buyers preying on residents in low income housing markets.

The Urban Praxis Workshop is a partner in mapping and identifying speculators and known contract sellers.
