Understanding the Housing Recovery Plans
The recently announced Homeowner Affordability and Stability Plan is a sweeping effort to stem the national tide of foreclosures and to help as many as 9 million homeowners stay current on their mortgages. Click here for a look at what the plan will entail and who will be eligible for assistance.
The Obama White House launched a new web site, www.makinghomeaffordable.gov to give homeowners a one-stop place to research options to reduce mortgage payments, prevent foreclosures, or to find counselors to guide them through the often complicated process.
