A free housing fair Saturday allowed homeowners to get help from experts on how to avoid foreclosure and other serious problems.The fair at Juarez Community Academy was sponsored by the Spanish Coalition for Housing and by Chicago's Department of Community Development.

Realtors, attorneys, credit officials and others were on-hand to answer questions.

Mayor Daley urged homeowners to take advantage of such fairs and avoid swindlers who promise help in exchange for money, then disappear.
