Good morning, Another week comes to a close and it seems like fall it finally here. All I know is that World Series game 6 last night was one to remember. Oh, and Europe is still a mess. So where are we today? Well, there's been a pretty big stock market rally worldwide since the conclusion of th...

The Federal Housing Finance Agency said they didn't support a totally new strategy to help troubled homeowners. Instead, they agreed with Obama's HARP 2.0 plan. Shocking, right? In my opinion, this plan allows an insignificant amount of those homeowners to refinance, which isn't an altogether bad...

Most of us should have seen prices get better today as a result of the temperment regarding the EU crisis. What is interesting to me is that this is weighing more heavily on investor behavior than domestic indicators, such as the Consumer Confidence index, which has plummeted. The people drive th...

I read an article this morning about the "bull case" for housing in 2012. I see the optimism but I guess I'm more of a realist. It's just hard to see how things are going to turn around so quickly.

It looks like a solution is close for the 10.9 million people with an "underwater" mortgage. Everyone knows someone in this position so please share. It looks like the banks, in order to avoid serious civil liabilities from the state's attorney's general, will agree to refinance these mortgages w...

I've been reading quite a bit about the proposed new programs that the Government has been talking about. But I can't quite figure out a couple things. First, what exactly are they going to do? And second, will they help?  Since 2009 more than 13 million homeowners have refinanced, but less than ...

The Progressive Policy Institute and Economic Policies for the 21st Century, two government think tanks, recently met recently with lawmakers to discuss possible ways to solve the housing crisis. This 5 minute VIDEO clip gives some good highlights of the day's meeting. If you were running the sho...

I thought this synopsis was excellent. If the government decides to sanction the forgiveness of loans, it will create an even greater level of paranoia amongst lenders and therefore influence (probably in an unfair matter) their ability to lend objectively. They'll know that any agreement to lend...

I hope it's been a good week. Despite some skepticism, I have to admit that I was not the leader of the Occupy Wall Street Movement. But what a story that has been... With that movement, and the European debt crisis, and the Iran terror plot, Israel planning to attack Iran, and a little issue kno...
