Subprime Mortgages Creating High Default Rates
Thursday, March 29, 2007
Sub prime lending refers to the practice of making home loans to people who would typically not qualify for one. These loans are given out to people with poor credit. When they're done right, they can help a person buy a home and get their finances back in order. But the increasing mortgage default rate, and the current turmoil in the home mortgage industry, shows that these loans are not being done very well.
