As several million adjustable rate mortgages are scheduled to be reset within the coming months, troubles are expected to grow more frustrating in many markets. Homeowners will find themselves in a tight position since it will be very hard for them to pay theirmonth-to-month mortgages because of these scheduled resets. During these times, many householders are forced to sell their homes or face foreclosure.
According to most statistics, the rest of 2008 is still poised for problems in the housing industry. Statistics reveal that new homes on the market could experience a loss of up to 18% before 2011 is out. Home values are also expected to drop. While there are a few indications that the market could begin to level off at the end of 2011 or the beginning of 2012, many experts are quick to notify that when the market does begin to rebound it will not get to the point where it left off. The rebounded market could still be quite lower as opposed to the housing peak about 5-6 years ago. Part of the cause for this is that in many areas, prices boomed to epic proportions so quickly that there is not any way for prices to rebound back to that point.
Still, there may be some home for certain areas. In many markets sub-prime mortgages have either left the market through quick sales or foreclosure. Housing market in many areas are expecting help from the stimulus package on the horizon.
Homeowners may not have exactly the same kind of recovery as first time home buyers who were forced out in the market. A part of the reason is because many homeowners are reluctant to lose the collateral they once had in their homes if they sell. It’s just really not possible to get the sell at an amount that’s possible a few years ago. And this is a danger most homeowners are not willing to take.
