Home Loans Become Difficult To Obtain

Jun 8, 2008
The home loan debacle has caused big problems for those interested in buying a home, but who don't have perfect credit. Even those with really good credit are finding it difficult to get a home loan simply because the banks are not interested in making any more bad loans, so they simply don't want to make any loans!

This is putting the real estate market in the trash and affecting the financial market in many ways. It's difficult to accept for many because just a few years ago practically anyone who applied for a home loan was approved, regardless of their credit. That's a big reason why the home loan debacle happened in the first place.

It simply does not make sense to give people with bad credit a home loan. They have bad credit for a reason, and if they didn't pay their credit cards and other responsibilities it doesn't make sense that they would pay their home loan. Regardless, banks approved home loans for practically everyone who wanted one.

Now, the real estate market has a problem because of the home loan fallout. Homes sit on the market with no buyers in sight. And, once a buyer does show interest it is difficult to actually get approved for a loan. So, home prices are plunging and there is no immediate recovery in sight.

The Future is Bleak

For the moment, home prices are dropping to 75% of their previous value. Some believe this is as low as they will go and prices will go back up. However, other analysts believe the country will enter a full out recession and prices of homes will drop as much as 40%.

That remains to be seen, but one thing is for certain and that is that the real estate market needs some help. As long as banks are being stingy with loans, then the real estate market has no way to recover. That's because without home loans people can't buy homes.

And, the banks aren't being very generous with loans right now so the real estate market has nowhere to go but down. People with really good credit are the only ones with any hope of buying their own home these days, and that makes sense from a home loan point of view.

That's because banks have less risk when they loan to those with good credit than when they make a bad credit loan. The market is uncertain at the moment, but it will eventually go back up even if it still has to go down some more. That has always been the case in history and once the market falls significantly it has nowhere else to go but up.

So, hopefully the recession will be short lived and home loans will not be so difficult to obtain in the future. They should be, however, reserved for those with demonstrated good credit and an income to repay the loan. This will keep the banks from being in this situation again in the future.
