The dust is beginning to settle after the federal government and 49 states agreed to settle with five banks over allegations of fraudulent foreclosure documents. The deal will pay homeowners who lost their homes some money and will allow people facing foreclosure the opportunity to have the interest or the principal lowered on their mortgages. But how much impact can that make? And will it only speed up the process of getting more homes onto the market, which will push prices even lower?

Support comes from

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
