    • Thanx for this bit of good news!! I think everyone in the country will feel better once this backlog of foreclosures is done with.

      I have a Realtor friend who says what will probably happen now is that the realistic sellers will drop their asking price down by $6,000 to $8,000 and be glad to get any buyer they can.

      Also, a Realtor on CNBC also said that they were working on a program to rebate 3% or more back to the buyers by using a credit of some kind.

      All in all, the Homebuilders continue to march upward sgteadily every day. Backed off a little on Friday but Cramer says there will be a SHORTAGE of housing in about a year. I agree....somewhat.

      I'm very LONG the XHB.
