For Many Home Equity Loans, Payment Shock is Near

Even with a principal reduction, this will get you back to square one from where you were before.

Gretchen Morgenson-

IS the housing market finally coming back from the dead?

Recent data suggests as much. New homes are being built again. Sales of existing ones are rising — up nearly 10 percent in May from the same month of 2011. Also in May, pending home sales, a figure based on signed purchase contracts, matched their highest levels in two years. Gains were seen across the nation.

After so many years of declines, these signs of life in housing are surely welcome. But the fact is, even a strong recovery is unlikely to rescue many homeowners who are groaning under the weight of multiple mortgages.

That’s because of the nature of home equity lines of credit, which require low payments in the early years followed by hefty payments later on. For many borrowers, those later years are fast approaching.
