:?: while depressed property values can hurt some large investors, they are potentially devastating for home owners,whose equity - in many cases representing a life's savings - can plunge or even disappear

D. for homeowners it is potentially devastating in that their
E It can potentially devastate home owners , whose

My query :
the explanation says that can potentially as stated in B, is redundant. I feel it makes the statement look parellel ?- can hurt large..,can potentially devastate..

Any thoughts?

A. -do -
B. they can potentially devastate home owners in that their => The problem with B is 'their', look for structure, 'their' refers to 'values', not 'home owners' (the intended meaning)
C. for home owners they are potentially devastating,because their => Same problem with the pronoun
D. for homeowners it is potentially devastating in that their => 'it' have no antecedent
E It can potentially devastate home owners , whose => Same reasoning with D
