Ohio has led the nation in foreclosures. This fact has prompted many government and privately owned agency to develop home foreclosure help in Ohio. Most of this help is available to homeowners that took out risky “subprime” loans. These loans are called subprime because of the borrower’s credit history; they were unable to qualify for “prime” mortgage rates.
The subprime mortgages come with a higher interest rate to cover the risk factor of the lower credit score. It also includes a limited time “teaser” rate that was much lower than the actual interest rate. Many lending institutions did not make it clear to borrowers what the actual mortgage costs were. These borrowers often find themselves looking for home foreclosure help in Ohio once their “teaser” period is over.
