B. they can potentially devastate homeowners in that their
"in that their equity" is not idiomatic
C. for homeowners they are potentially devastating, because their
"their" is refer to "homeowners" or to "depressed property values". not clear

D and E say "it" instead of "they" and are awkward in construction.
