What Is Strategic Default ? Is It The Right Move ?
A Strategic Default takes place when a property owner decides to stop making mortgage loan payments even if the owner can afford the payments.
This occurs when the value of the property is below the mortgage balance. The rationale according to economists like Paul Krugman and Hal Varian is the following.
Strategic defaults were an inevitable result of the collapse of the housing market and as long as prices continued to fall, strategic defaults would continue to rise.
However with prices in nearly all parts of the U.S., bottoming out or in some areas advancing nicely, the question remains, is a strategic default still a necessary and essential option for millions of negative equity borrowers?
Whether or not a strategic default is in your best interest, has a great deal to do with emotional factors and the near and longer term housing outlook for future price appreciation in your area.
In addition, whether or not you can qualify for H.A.R.P. 2.0 refinancing, can also be a major factor in your decision.
