Managing Real Estate Broker with FatherTime® Auctions and Real Estate

Freddie Mac’s recently released economic outlook describes a refreshingly brighter view of the year ahead, but the pace of recovery in the forecast is well below the growth that has followed most recessions in the past half-century.

As a result, prices in the hardest-hit areas have the potential to be depressed even further. At the national level, Freddie Mac said it expects the housing market to weather the growth in distressed sales without significant setbacks, but risks still remain.

It is good to see some positive news.  I am hopeful the foreclosures are limited.
