    People still want to buy a home,the only fiance available is FHA, and VA both are very hard to qualified for,the underwriting are under very strict control by the Dub's and Frank law which went over bored with financing regulation on home finance. They wanted to punish someone so they they went after the home buyer instead of Wall street.

    Too many home buyers bought homes without reading their entire or any part of their buyer documents, including their deeds, or without retaining attorneys. Consequently buyers bought homes financially over their heads and with documents totally in favor of the sellers. Don't blame the sellers and the banks.
