Mortgage Rate Freeze - Don't Get Excited Yet

Okay, the major financial institutions may be freezing the interest rate on some adjustable rate mortgages. If you have one of these, don't get excited yet -- the freezes will be only for certain "eligible" borrowers who have demonstrated that they can't pay the reset interest rate. If you're already in trouble, you don't qualify. The estimate is that only 12% of all ARM borrowers will be eligible. This is good news, however, for the few families who will now not be homeless within the next six months.
