• Foreclosure sales are expected to slow down as lenders scrutinize their foreclosure methods and proceedings.

• The foreclosure crisis may last even longer than expected as lenders and loan servicers are bombarded with more lawsuits and investigations on claims of falsified mortgage documents.

• In the near-term, the foreclosure freeze may benefit homeowners as they’re able to stay in their homes payment-free for longer. However, the freeze may have grave consequences on the housing market since all of the foreclosed properties have to be reexamined by the banks and then sold.

• Bank of America’s decision to freeze foreclosures will have a significant impact on thousands of borrowers in Minnesota.
