Spencer, fascinating stuff here.  I've just bookmarked it so I can read it more carefully later. 

I wonder what might happen if the bank sellers started to behave like conventional sellers.  You know, fixing the place up and really exposing it to the market.  Not that I expect that to happen any time soon.

Spencer: What is the result if only cash sales of market price homes is used? I think that these ratios reflect a cash discount and possibly an adjustment for condition.  Market price sales are more often than not, in good condition, are fully disclosed and sold by a Realtor that answers the phone. In the Houston housing market, I have not seen many foreclosures that are move in ready or discounted sufficiently to justify the risk of no disclosure and no consumer protection for the buyer.
