Home prices fall in November ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — U.S. home prices fell for a third straight month in nearly all cities tracked by a major index. The declines show that most homeowners are not reaping the benefits from some signs of an improving housing market. Prices dropped in

November from October in

19 of the 20 cities tracked, according to the Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller home- price index released Tuesday. The steepest declines were in Atlanta, Chicago and Detroit. Phoenix was the only city to show an increase.

The declines partly reflect the typical fall slowdown after the peak buying season. Still, prices fell in 18 of the 20 cities in November

compared with the same month in 2010. Only Washington and Detroit posted year-over-year increases. Prices in Atlanta, Las

Vegas, Seattle and Tampa dropped to their lowest points since the housing crisis began. And prices have fallen 33 percent nationwide since the housing bust, to 2003 levels. Yuma City

UESTION: We have a backward real estate problem. Instead of being upside down, we have about $80,000 in equity. What


we don’t have is money and will shortly default. What can we do?

NSWER: You should see if there’s anyway to keep the property. If foreclosed, you’ll still need shelter, and rental

housing also costs money. Since the moment of nonpayment has

not arrived, you need to take several steps now.

First, look at your monthly costs. What can you cut?

Second, if you’ve lost a job, do you qualify for unemployment assistance? Third, by any chance can you start Social Security, if qualified? This can be tough choice because there are advantages to delaying Social Security payments. Fourth, go to MakingHomeAffordable.

gov and look at HAMP – the Home Affordable Modification Program. HAMP, says HUD, “lowers your monthly mortgage payment to 31 percent of your verified monthly gross (pre-tax) income to make your payments more affordable. The typical HAMP modification results in a 40-percent drop in a monthly mortgage payment. Eighteen percent of HAMP homeowners reduce their payments by $1,000 or more.” Fifth, speak with your state attorney general’s office They may be able to suggest modification programs and lender

House rich, cash poor

contacts that will be helpful. Is it possible to rent out part of your home, say, a room or a floor? Rental rates have been rising and even a short-term tenant might provide the cash you need to retain the property until things get better. Lastly, sell the house. You have equity.

You can sell and completely pay off the mortgage. It may not be a preferred choice, but it’s a better option than missing payments, losing credit, losing equity and being foreclosed.
