Underwater Homeowners Demand Principal Reduction
CLEVELAND, OH – Today a startling new report revealed that even the nation’s mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac agree that reducing principal balances on underwater mortgages will help families and communites while saving taxpayers money. (Link to report)
So why won’t they do it? The decision rests with Edward DeMarco, the acting director of the FHFA, who has refused to allow it, claiming it’s bad business. Now his own employees’ analysis proves that’s not the case.
No more excuses!
Today underwater homeowners and neighborhood leaders from across northeast Ohio will board buses and take their message to a local bank, demanding serious action on principal reduction.
