When Should Homeowners Walk Away? - 06/24/09 01:13 PM
In a complicated market like todays, it is hard to know whether you should keep your home or walk away from it. Many homeowners have watched their property values drop over 25 percent, sometimes more. Some say the market hasn't even hit the bottom yet.

Foreclosure Crisis Now Spreading To Prime Mortgages - 06/09/09 06:15 PM
The prime borrowers are rapidly going into foreclosure, especially in those states of mass unemployment or decreasing property values, all which saw a huge run-up during the housing boom.
