Stick it To The Banks, Survey Says


Destin, FL – June 1, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — Americans want more from the U.S. Congress, according to a new independent survey and Congress needs to start by forcing banks to modify home mortgages for those at risk of foreclosure.

That’s the finding from a New Housing Predictor survey, which found that a large majority of respondents (62%) said that Congress should require banks and mortgage companies to modify home mortgages for homeowners in financial straits.

While the U.S. Congress debates issues related to financial reform and government regulators work out the details, about 12,000 Americans a day are being thrown out of their homes as a result of foreclosures.
