Real Estate - The Real Estate Market Can Boost

Aug 9, 2008
When looking at the real estate problems we can find more than one reason for them. Some believe this is due to the mortgage and banking industries making too many loans for houses while many believe it is due to home buyers not educating themselves well enough. It is probably a little bit of both in reality. Some home purchasers buy too much in a house compared to what they can really afford. Loans have been quite easy to get in the years leading up to the problems with all the foreclosures in real estate. We need to take a closer look at some reasons for this.

Home buyers have long bought big when it comes to homes. Sometimes so big that they get themselves in over their heads with their mortgage payments. If they could only see the problems that could arise in the future they would think twice before having such mortgage payments to deal with. Some home buyers have made huge mistakes by grabbing mortgage loans that have rates that vary. They start off low but rise and this makes the payments often too high to handle. Also the taxes and insurance for the house can rise too compounding the problem.

When you are thinking about buying a house you must inform yourself on which loans are wise and which ones are not. You also need to fully understand how much you really can spend a month on your house. It is real easy for you to buy more in a house than you need. This can lead to financial woes later.

There are even those that buy large houses that have big kitchens and plenty of space. But the way some of them get their loans is by out right lying about their income on their applications for their loans. Then they wind up with more than they can handle and wind up losing the house. Unscrupulous lenders even seek out people (with bad credit or low income) to loan money to knowing that it will all go bust and they will have to repossess the house. Many states have voted and passed legislation to prohibit this now. More states need to do this though.

There was a special house in foreclosure on the news the other night. It was a house donated to a family that could not afford to fix their old one. This type of house was so spacious and nice that most people could exist a lifetime in it. But this family decided to cash in and take out several loans against the house that they now cannot pay back. When this house was being raised it was on the television and so was the family's financial situation. Too bad whoever loaned them the money was not watching that night surely they would not have loaned them that huge of a sum.

More consideration needs to be given before giving someone such a generous gift if they are going to misuse and lose it. You know how many homeowners could use that kind of help these days? And they would cherish the house and try to keep it rather than throw it away by recklessly borrowing more than they could pay back.

Only a few of the reasons for the real estate crisis have been mentioned so far. An additional problem that happens is the homeowners go through situations that cause hardships as far as being able to pay the bills. Homeowners sometimes lose employment and this makes them fall behind in their bills. This also creates the situation that leads some to lose their homes.

There are also incidents that can happen where people become physically injured and cannot participate in their jobs. This causes money troubles sometimes very severe ones. People not only have medical bills mount up but their regular bills to the point that they try leaving their house payments lapse trying to take care of everything. This lapse causes major problems that can lead to a house being foreclosed on and sometimes worse.

When enough of the houses that were foreclosed on get sold and the new ones start selling for better prices this real estate problem will slowly subside. Maybe the proper changes will occur to keep something like these problems from happening anymore. It would be a travesty for this problem to return after we do get it resolved.
