San Diego homes for saleThis year, over 155,000 families have lost their homes to foreclosures and within the first three months of 2008. According to CNN, the states that have been the most greatly affected are in the Southwest, with Nevada, California, and Arizona at the top of the list for foreclosure filings. The outlook is not much more hopeful, with an expected spike again in the last third or fourth quarter of this year.                       downtown San  Diego real estate  for sale

  1. Glass-Steagall, the law enacted in1933 to prevent another Great Depression was repealed at the behest of bankers. While it is true that at certain times the US government will act in the best interest of society, usually (and usually in the guise of so doing) the US government is the pawn of the special interests that benefit from the trough of government largesse and regulation. The repealing of the Glass-Steagall Act in 1999 was therefore a reversion to the mean. We are today in the initial stages of another collapse that will lead to another Great Depression. The safeguards put in place to prevent such from happening were not only disassembled in 1999; but, now in 2008, the US government has moved even closer to exposing its citizenry and indeed the world to the speculative carnage and folly of investment banking excess.

  2. It’s sad, really sad, because the people that are losing these homes have names and faces. They could be your brother, your sister, your parents. Most of the time, we tend to think that the foreclosures are mainly real estate investors or flippers that are just letting their investment properties go back to the bank, but the reality is there are alot of families living without homes.

  3. Much is said now about the state of the real estate market, the recent audacity by the fed chair, and how our dollar is being trampled on by the feds. Much is said about the lack of equity in homes and the lack of liquidity from the few available buyers out there. The economy is dead, all these foreclosures are ruining the state.

  4. It’s much harder for troubled borrowers to get a loan now. The lending industry has tightened up standards for lending to elimintate the slide of foreclosures due to subprime lending practices targeting those troubled borrowers. The local media has presented the facts in a negative light, but a return to normalcy is about to occur.

  5. Measuring the percentage of total mortgages in foreclosure does not tell the whole story. Late payments on credit cards, revolving charge accounts and automobile loans are worrying the Fed also. And the number of mortgages in foreclosure today also does not speak to the number that are expected to follow.
