The controversy surrounding real estate foreclosure dramas are in two camps: those who believe in a bail out and those that don’t. If you bought at the height of the real estate market and you are now faced with an adjustable rate mortgage and dropping real estate prices, you are probably in favor of a real estate foreclosure bail out.
There are other people, however, who fault the home buyer and not the lenders for the the problems we are now seeing with real estate foreclosures. They argue that if borrowers hadn’t overextended themselves buying too much house and agreeing to terms that made poor financial sense then they would not be facing foreclosure. Like any argument, there’s probably a hint of truth in both sides.
