foreclosures: Foreclosures: Look..Listen and Learn - 02/09/11 06:41 AM
Foreclosures: Look..Listen and LearnI listen to agents, sellers and buyers complain about how slow the banks are in dealing with short sales and don't seem to care if the homes are headed into foreclosure.

Meanwhile, the existing home … (6 comments)
