Hello Aida, I suspect that it will stabilize a little over the next 6 months so my guess is that is will fall to say 1600. That would be my guess. There may be incentives by then for lenders not to foreclose on as many properties.

Hi William---thanks for your input!

Out out curiosity ---what makes you say 1,600 in the next 6 months--I am think that is going to be more!

The short sales are not being approved and they are turning into reo's

What about those loans that were made in 2005 fixed for 5


I am just trying to see where this foreclosure market is headed!  is it going up or stablizing?
