There are many foreclosures happening all over the country. This is mainly due to the sub-prime mortgage debacle that happened recently. This is when lenders relaxed their criteria to allow more people to realize the American dream of homeownership.
The problem was that their attractive initial interest rates jumped after a few months. Many of these new homeowners never read the fine print so this jump in mortgage price was out of nowhere. This resulted in many foreclosures that we’re still seeing the residual of today. But it’s not just regular homes that are being foreclosed on.
