Obama Administration Expands Housing "Rescue Plan"
According to this BusinessWeek article, Obama administration expands housing plan, the Obama Administration is expanding the coverage of its previous $50 billion housing rescue plan in order to cover more distressed homeowners. The previous plan has helped 55,000 homeowners avoid foreclosure via loan refinances and payment modifications. This new expansion will only aid homeowners by making it easier to give their homes back to the banks, or complete a short sale. While these add ons are certainly needed it still does not address the problem of the banks having too many REO's, or losing money and becoming insolvent. Of course, in my previous blog posts I beat up the initial plan since it omitted investors and homeowners whose homes were worth far less than the mortgage amount. These remain a source of a lot of foreclosures. In short, this new plan will do little to nothing to stop the decline of the housing market.
