foreclosures in ashland: Foreclosures in Ashland and Medford Oregon - not that many? - 03/08/11 01:18 PM
Some of the "theys" were saying that there was going to big a another big wave of foreclosures. Maybe in another area, but here in the Ashland, Medford area, the foreclosure list is getting shorter rather than longer. As a Realtor, I get weekly updates on which properties are on the foreclosure list. This week only one page long...Last week, a page and a half of properties. A year ago the list was 2 to 3 pages long. I hope the "theys" are wrong and the trend stays as it is...less and less distressed homes. (0 comments)

foreclosures in ashland: 6 Homes in Foreclosure in Ashland - 03/06/08 07:08 PM
As bad as the media says the housing market is...Only 6 homes in Ashland, Oregon are in foreclosure. How many of these will actually go the county steps for a final sale? My guess is maybe one.
