You're not alone if you're having trouble paying your mortgage

The housing boom led to a record homeownership rate of nearly 70 percent, but some homeowners now face problems making their mortgage payments and can’t refinance their loans.

Many of these mortgages helped families without cash for a down payment, or with less-than-perfect credit, qualify for loans known as “subprime” loans.
