A subprime horror - Mexico's Housing Debacle

One of the harsher aftershocks of Mexico’s housing collapse came from subprime-like mortgages given to the working poor, people who didn’t qualify for loans from Infonavit, Mexico’s giant housing finance agency.

Both types of loans featured rising monthly payments, and the total amount owed also increased. But the subprime loans were structured to increase at a higher rate.

For investors, those escalating payments provided a hedge against inflation and currency fluctuations. But for homeowners, the onerous loan terms led to defaults on a massive scale.

Ten years later, a cyclone of foreclosures continues to cut a slow-motion path of financial destruction across Mexico. It’s the latest stage of a housing collapse that left developments plagued with infrastructure problems and abandoned homes. Now banks and bondholders are extending their reach into the decaying tracts to seize homes.

In Silva’s neighborhood in eastern Tijuana, mailboxes are stuffed with foreclosure notices. Cul-de-sac gates are locked in mostly vain attempts to keep out eviction crews. “Is the bank trying to take away your home?” reads a sign with a phone number to call, nailed to a teetering utility pole.

"So an in-law suite could be the perfect spot for your small business." Guest quarters:  When out-of-town guests come to visit, an in-law suite is the perfect place for them to have a little privacy with their own bedroom and bathroom. Older child residence:  Adult children who may need to live at home while establishing themselves financially can use the space as an apartment, perhaps even paying a little rent. Short- or long-term rental apartment:  Since many in-law suites are fully equipped apartments, they
