White House weighs mass refinancing plan

August 27, 2011

The White Home is thinking about a housing proposal that would enable millions of Cape Coral homeowners with government-backed mortgages to refinance into lower interest rates, The New York Times reports.

“A wave of refinancing could be a powerful stimulus towards the economy, because it would lower consumers’ mortgage bills appropriate away and enable them to spend elsewhere,” an post within the New York Times notes.

A lot of homeowners have been unable to take advantage of today’s low interest rates – that are averaging around four percent – simply because they do not qualify for refinancing at the very best rates considering that they owe far more on their residence than it truly is at present worth or because of poor credit. The refinancing program is nonetheless under discussion of how it would work, The New York Times stated.

“This could be the very best stimulus on the market due to the fact it does not increase the deficit, it accomplishes monetary policy, and it reduces defaults in housing,” Christopher J. Mayer, an economist in the Columbia Business School, told The New York Times.

The White House is also considering other choices to attempt to stimulate the housing industry or save homeowners from foreclosure. Such possibilities include more adjustments to its refinancing programs so much more homeowners can participate or a property rental program to that would rent out foreclosures as opposed to putting them for sale so foreclosures would stop weighing down overall residence costs.
