Juan Guzman bit off more than he can chew, and now he’s created a huge lawn sign in his front yard that reads, “‘J.P. Morgan Chase help.”
He says it’s his last hope to save his dream home.
Guzman built his home in 2007 but was unable to make the monthly mortgage payment of $3,600 per month. He says he’s tried negotiating with his bank but he’s been unsuccessful.
In 2009, Guzman lost his job and his house is currently in foreclosure.
The desperate homeowner says he’s simply “trying to save my house, my family and my savings, life savings.”
He’s now hoping that the bank will talk to him now that he’s working again, especially since some lenders, including J.P. Morgan Chase, are temporarily halting foreclosures.
“We are all Americans and we should be helping each other. You banks, you already got the help from the government, so its time to show up,” Guzman said.
He says he’s putting up this sign for those people who don’t want to speak out. “There’s a lot of people like me that are not putting signs like that out.”
