...Just live in Spain. With millions of Option ARM mortgages still coming due in the next two years in the US, the Fed's ongoing push to drop mortgage rates has only made the problem worse, and instead of people refinancing out of adjustable rate mortgages into fixed, with the opportunity cost being so little, if any, the whammy of rising interest rates on home values upon Option ARM expiration will only exacerbate the triple dip in home prices once the ARM cliff hits some time in 2012/2013. Yet it seems that this final recourse to extend and pretend the housing bubble is only now coming (a tad too little too late) to those European countries which are already bankrupt and will do anything and everything to prevent reality from appearing. Behold the BBK Euribor+0.35% 5 Year Option ARM 50 year mortgage with an LTV of up to 100% (but only if you can be enslaved early on: the mortgage is only open for people 18-35). And just in case you can't actually afford Euribor+ 0.35%, that's factored in too: you have the option of not paying for years.
From Euribor + 0.35 (*) and 50-year term for young people between 18 and 35 years (35 inclusive). Funding adapt to your needs. bbk always offers housing finance solution that best suits your desires.

It is unclear if making any money would disqualify one from this mortgage. Then again with well over 40% of the Spanish under-25 population unemployed, w don't think finding qualified NINJA applicants will be an issue.
And just in case anyone finds the conditions in the above mortgage offer too Draconian, here is Banco Caiza Geral with an offer for a 45 year mortgage with a 2 year grace period. After all, there are iPadi to be purchased and millions of Chinese workers to be made richer.

And one wonders why Erik Nielsen is so confident the European bubble will go on.
At least Spain has conclusively shown to America how to get HAMP to work once and for all: just let people never pay ever again. Done and done. After all the taxpayers will be more than happy to always foot the bill.
