The worst thing about the mess in the subprime industry is that it left in its wake millions of innocent American families without a home. It has long been established that one of the reasons for the foreclosure crisis involved hybrid mortgages. In Phoenix, a group of Hispanic real estate agents has decided to help their community by making sure that all local residents avoid these risky loan packages.

In a meeting held last Sunday night, the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals stressed the importance of helping clients understand the meaning of “sustainable homeownership”. This means that real estate agents should take responsibility in providing their clients genuine assistance when it comes to choosing the perfect loan product for them.

Of course, it is also important that the public is educated about the advantage of saving and setting aside more money for down payment, in order to lessen the burden of having to pay a huge amount in mortgage dues every month. In addition, knowing the differences of the many mortgage products will help them make informed decisions and reducing the risks of losing their homes to foreclosure.

For the past three years, the housing industry has been battling with a foreclosure crisis, which has affected over three million homeowners. In an effort to address this problem, the government has already approved a rescue/bailout program (Housing and Recovering Act) that will benefit both mortgage lenders and distressed borrowers. This program is scheduled to be implemented on October 1.

Guest Speaker Bran Montgomery of the Federal Housing Commissioner believes that many consumers will benefit immensely from the said program since it also include provisions that will provide counseling to home buyers in order to help them make the right choices and avoid foreclosure in the future. As a consumer, taking advantage of the counseling sessions will be the smartest thing to do.
