Quiz: What is the Headline for this Foreclosure News?
So in going thru the Boston Globe I come across this article about Foreclosures in Massachusetts.
Can you figure out what the Headline would be with the following quotes:
...the number of foreclosures initiated by lenders in Massachusetts dropped in November. "... The modest decline in petitions could indicate that an improving employment picture is leading to fewer mortgage delinquencies." ...year-to-date foreclosure deeds are down. ...down nearly 35 percent from 11,752 deeds recorded during the same period in 2010. ...indicating that lenders have improved their ability to process foreclosure paperwork after a slowdown over the past 12 months" The number of completed foreclosures in Massachusetts jumped more than 70 percent in November. Sounds to me like the only "negative" portion of this article is the last one. But D.C. Denison decided to use the following as the headline:
Foreclosures up 71% in Mass. in Nov.
So even though the reporter used the attention grabbing headline to give newspaper browsers the impression that the foreclosure market is still extremely painful in Massachusetts, almost everything in the article is viewed by professionals in the industry as positive.
