Housing Crash Part 2? A Massive Second Wave Of Mortgages Reset Starting In 2010

The housing crash of 2008/2009 was one of the biggest financial disasters in American history.  Approximately 6 million homes have been foreclosed on by lenders in just the last three years alone as millions of American families watched their hopes for achieving the American Dream go up in smoke.  Since early 2008, approximately 60 million U.S. homes have lost a combined 5 trillion dollars in value.  It has been an unmitigated disaster for homeowners, lenders, home builders, real estate agents and construction workers.  Now approximately one out of every four U.S. homeowners are “underwater” on their mortgages.  That means that they owe more money than their homes are worth.  If that wasn’t bad enough, it is estimated that by June of this year approximately 5.1 million American homeowners will own a home valued below 75 percent of what is owed.  Can you imagine owing $400,000 on a home that is only worth $300,000?  That is where millions of American families find themselves now.  In some areas of the U.S., the housing market is so bad that it is almost comical.  In California, one bank demolished 16 nearly completed homes because it was cheaper to knock them down than to finish building them.  The worst part is that by all indications, the housing crash is far from over.  In fact, a massive “second wave” of mortgage defaults is on the way over the next three years that could potentially deliver a knock out blow to the U.S. economy.
