Frances....thanks for the survey. I hopped over here from Facebook and filled it out.

I'm going to be battered, bruised and scared by the time there is any sense of "normal" in the real estate market, or economy in general, but I WILL survive!

Thanks, Thom! I think we have to create a new sense of normal. I'm going off the grid for five hours of brainstorming with HUD housing counselors in Tucson ... TTYL. 8-)

Also, THANKS to Bob Stewart for featuring this post today. I am very grateful for the support.

Filled out the form, will be interested to see the results when they're available. It seems you are trying to do more for the situation than the average RE school.

I want to collect a meaningful number of responses before talking about results ... I'm guessing that will take a couple of weeks or so. The  more responses we have, the more meaningful the results. I will share them as soon as it becomes feasible. 

I am very grateful to anyone who is kind enough to share a little "viralocity" with a ReBlog click. Thanks very much for sharing.

Frances, there just has to be an easy central way to explain the ever changing government programs. And I'm not talking about going to the government site - more like a Reader's Digest version.

Frank and Sharon, I think you are right about a Reader's Digest style presentation. I attended a meeting with HUD counselors yesterday and we discussed up-to-the-minute changes in HAMP and HARP ... There is LOTS of information to digest. Small bites is easier. 

Renee and Katherine (and everyone else) - Thanks!

Hi Fran,

The economy today has a lot of people up side down.  Unemployment still increasing and daily affecting the foreclosures and/or short sales. There seems to be no end.  I can just imagine what the results show.  Take care.

What I REALLY fear is the Lender's releasing ALL of their Inventory for sale as I would submit that the problem of foreclosures/etc is MUCH worse than we are seeing in the "numbers" current.  Between that, goofy loans, unemployment and TARP, I don't think the TRUE market is reflected.

Thanks for the forum!

Craig, I suspect that "shadow inventory" (bank owned property not on the market yet) is going to create serious price compression in many market areas over the next couple of years. If you are interested in the possible impact in your area, check your tax records and compare the number of bank properties on the MLS. There is a shocking reserve inventory across the hardest hit areas of the country.
