Two of the world's larget networking sites will team up today and the results could provide a boost to realtors that utilize both. This press release outlines how Trulia will offer a Facebook Connect feature to it's subscribers that will allow Facebook users to view their entire portfolio. I have...
This article from RealtyTrac offers me no surprises. They use data from a number of different sources to project future housing market trends,. My only argumnet is that, where they feel that foreclosures will increase slightly in 2011, I feel they will increase substantially in my market of Maric...
Here is the latest update. I have limited my comments this week as most of the numbers have remained relatively flat. ACTIVE: 796, last week 793 SHORT SALES: 351, last weel 349 LENDER OWNED: 175, down from 184. The number of lender owned homes continue to trend downward. As I have stated before, ...
This is a very "heady" article, a lot of which I don't claim to understand. And that appears to be the problem. Even though the media praised this settlement, I doubt very much that they have much, if any, understanding of it. This also applies to the general public and, most importantly of all, ...
Here is the weekly post from Housing Wire that cathces up on the weekend's news. At the top of the list is the shooting spree that took place on Saturday, just 1 1/2 hours down the road from me in Tucson.

It is interesting to note, however, that he seems to be relying on the servicers and realtors to become more efficient in processing them. I certainly hope that this is the cas...
I'm sure all of you are ware of this information but I feel it's a good article that covers most of the questions that I receive from potential clients that are in a distressed (and some not so distressed) situation with their home. I thought I;d pass it along as I am going to utilize some of it ...
Here are my weekly numbers. Some BIG changes so be sure to read the summary. Once again, keep in mind that this is only for Maricopa Arizona subdivision homes. Also, I have added an AUCTION column beginning this week to track the inventory of homes being offered under a Notice of Trustee Sale. AC...
This article details a blog post from Anthony Renzi, President of Freddie Mac, in which he outlines seven facts about the foreclosure process. There are some staggering numbers here but I was particularly surprised to see him admit that "it takes an average of 449 days to foreclose on a home with...
