Indd 45 11/7/08 8:58:08 PM $70 0 billion bailout The Bad News: Getting a Mortgage Is Going to Be Much Tougher The EESA legislation might also be called the “Trickle-Down Help” bill. By buying bad mortgage bonds, the government can restructure loans by reducing the loan amount and interest rate for the consumer. The Treasury can force lenders to do the same. I’ve already gone over this turf a bit, but what if you’re a new mortgage customer and want to buy a house? This is where it gets tricky. A few stark facts of the new lending landscape are taking shape: • The days of easy credit are over.

Mortgage bonds are made up of (collateralized by) thousands upon thousands of mortgages or what are deemed whole loans. A whole loan is industry jargon for the actual underlying mortgage. Most homeowners don’t realize it, but after they take out a mortgage, the underlying whole loan is sold (usually immediately) into what’s called the secondary market. The lender then retains the servicing rights on the loan, which means it receives a service fee for carrying out all the monthly processing work on the mortgage, that is, passing on the principal, interest, and real estate taxes to the proper parties.

Banks have been hoarding cash instead of lending it out. That’s what the Treasury Department wants to avoid.
