Foreclosure moratoriums placed in hard hit by Hurricane may ultimately wind up prolonging the housing recovery and making the foreclosure problem even worse in these areas, CNNMoney reports.

Prior to the storm, hard-hit areas in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut already had been seeing a 54 percent increase in foreclosures over last year. Nearly 125,000 homes were already in some stage of foreclosure or -owned by the end of October in the 34 counties now labeled disaster sites, RealtyTrac reports.

and Fannie Mae has told servicers to delay any actions against home owners who have defaulted on their mortgages in the disaster sites.

“Moratoriums being put into effect as a result of the storm will likely extend the already lengthy time to foreclose in these states,” Daren Blomquist, vice president of RealtyTrac, told CNNMoney.

Eventually, “all of those distressed will continue to weigh on home prices as the banks try to unload them in foreclosure auctions and them on the open at a discount once the suspensions are lifted,” CNNMoney reports. More foreclosures will likely hit these regions too, as some storm victims may opt to walk away from their homes rather than rebuild, says Brad German, a spokesman for Mac.
