None of the news articles are addressing this problem. And my friends wont tell me how they are making out financially.
Just curious.

  1. It’s not a problem.

    Those homes are/have been paid in full.
    They are drawing a “maximum percentage” of the value.

    I do not know how that may change if the total value of the home declines, but feel sure that the lenders are protected.
    I don’t think they will permit payments to exceed any current market value, even if the amount paid in is more than the value.
