In a feature story last month, “The Dispossessed,” we wrote about a Bayview homeowner named Geary Brown who was on the verge of getting evicted.He had been foreclosed on after he missed several mortgage payments while seeking to modify his loan.
Bank of America, which owned his mortgage, had put his house on the market. His eviction date, we noted, was May 2, the same day the story ran.
That day came and went with no movement. But then earlier this month, BofA agreed to stop the eviction and rescind the sale. The bank said it would open up discussion for modification.
