Wave of Mortgage Resets to hit 2009 - 2012

One of the best blogs out there covering the current mortgage market is Dr. Housing Bubble and today they issued a post that included the chart below:

This is a Credit Suisse chart that shows the the oncoming mortgage resets for ARMs, Option ARMs, Subprime Loans, Alt-A Loans, Prime Mortgages and Agency Mortgages. And the outlook is grim---There is a significant amount of mortgage resets that are scheduled to occur in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.

Currently in 2009 Mortgage rates are at all-time lows---but if your house is underwater, you can't refinance and will face a mortgage reset. Looking into the future, many people are seeing much higher rates in the outer years---So when the 2010 - 2012 resets occur, home-owners' monthly mortgage payments could take a quantum leap up.

As I've blogged about before, this housing bubble took years to climb in value---and it will likely take years to come to a bottom.
