Thirty Somethings Most at-Risk for Underwater Mortgages

A recent article from the Atlantic, Why Twenty-Somethings Aren’t Doomed to Be Poor (but Thirty-Somethings Might Be), suggests that the thirty-something generation has the largest ratio of underwater mortgages–that is, they owe more money on their homes than the homes are worth.

The thirty-something generation began purchasing homes just in time to be affected the worst by the mortgage crisis.  Now, they face more underwater debt than most other homeowners.  The twenty-something crowd had yet to purchase homes before values plummeted and older generations are less heavily affected by inflated home prices. Those in the thirty-something generation now have more debt to work out before they can get back ahead and begin saving for the future.

Bankruptcy is an alternative for many Americans-of all generations-who are underwater on their mortgages or find themselves saddled with too much debt.  It allows individuals and families the opportunity to eliminate or restructure debt and move forward with a fresh start.
