Information and Updates on Government Mortgage Programs
Filed under Government Mortgage Financing Programs News

Matthew Mogul, Associate Editor at The Kiplinger Letter recently put up this excellent analysis of the current mortgage climate and the things the government can or can’t do:

Expect only limited help from the government as the subprime mortgage mess continues to take a heavy toll. Foreclosures are approaching record levels, and we expect more than 2 million families to lose their homes over the course of this year and the next as interest rates on adjustable rate mortgages reset higher and push the monthly payments out of reach.

That’s not to say regulators and government agencies won’t try. Though no big bailouts are on the way — for either homeowners or lenders holding troubled mortgage loans — government officials in Washington and at the state and local levels are pushing initiatives that will help stanch some of the bleeding.
