property: The Sky is not falling on the Mortgage Industry - 08/16/07 04:07 PM
I Read this and felt the need to pass it on. No, the Sky ISN'T Falling on the Mortgage Industry If you have read the newspaper or turned on the television in the last month, you have probably seen a story or two about the mortgage business.

Even the Presidential candidates have weighed in on the solutions to this current "crises." Despite this rather sobering news, I remain optimistic about a return to a more traditional mortgage environment, and (4 comments)

I will go out on limb, however, and say that by the fourth quarter, existing-home sales will indeed show a marked improvement. May sales figures were low at 5.99 million sales (seasonally adjusted annualized rate). Closed sales in June and July could be (0 comments)
