So with an average home price of about $300,000. 4 million homes would total about 12 million.
Hmmm Not exactly an amount that would break a bank. ( or collapse an ecomomy)

yes true but your forgeting to factor in that the banks leverage there loans 100 to 1. so every buck they save they have in the vault, they lend out 100

so a back only needs $3,000 to loan a $300,000 note. but if that note defalts, they owe the $300,000

It is not a wild rumor that the gun shop owner was telling. He is telling the truth. Speak to an assessor or mortgage company. It is the truth. There are many living in foreclosed houses that have yet to be removed. Also, there are houses that are available for short sale. I am not fluent on this but as I understand, you make an offer, if it is accepted (by the bank) you get the house and the banks get reimbursed for some of their loss from the gov't. The banks are flooded and the time to process foreclosure takes so long, of course the people stay.

I saw a news report this spring about a sheriff who foreclosed on an apartment building. The owner was collecting rent but not paying the mortgage. The sheriff refused to throw the tenants out because he has compassion.




I see the impact of this, here in BIG LAKE, MN a whole mile or more of houses not even lived in. They use anti freeze in the winter to keep pipes from freezing. The houses, all over the place not only here in big lake , but elsewhere sit vacant. Some get broken into and it has become a problem here. SO TRUE.

I think your math is wrong:
4 million x 300,000 = 1,200,000,000,000
Isn't that 1.2 trillion?

when they took that out of the equation to fix the bubble a collapse occurred, no meltdown. Now they want to raise the ceiling to fix the bubble again to put a bandaid on the huge hole in the leak. I fear this will only buy little time. An imminant of total collapse within. Like russia said, A fire will not be shot, america will crumble within.

Banks list mortgage loans as assets. The more assets a bank has on the books the more it can loan.

As each of these people decided to stop paying on these loans, they were after 90 days listed as non performing assets.

Traveling down through various levels as the timeframe gets longer they make their way to troubled loans.

In each phase depending on the accounting of the firm portions of these nonperforming assets must be written off as a loss. By the firm.

Once written off the firm must then through foreclosure, short sell etc. try to recoup its losses on the sale of the assets. However these houses that these loans represent are still assets, and priced at the cost of the original loan.

One of the contributing factors for the last near economic collapse, was the fact that the banks were forced by the government to write down these assets to reflect current market value. (I am not saying this was a good thing or a bad thing only that it was a factor)

Once they did that their asset base was cut deeply and they were forced to call in loans or sell off performing loans to raise required reserves.

It’s not the write off of these loans that we must look out for, but the write-down of them.
Tying everything up in court has actually helped the banks by giving them more time before they have to write down these loans.

The gov't, NOT we the people are in charge, supposedly, unless it has been infiltrated by big buisness.

This doesn't surprise me at all. Look at the states from July 1, 2011:

CoreLogic (NYSE: CLGX), a leading provider of information, analytics and business services, today released negative equity data showing that 10.9 million, or 22.7 percent, of all residential properties with a mortgage were in negative equity at the end of the first quarter of 2011, down slightly from 11.1 million, or 23.1 percent, in the fourth quarter. An additional 2.4 million borrowers had less than five percent equity, referred to as near-negative equity, in the first quarter. Together, negative equity and near-negative equity mortgages accounted for 27.7 percent of all residential properties with a mortgage nationwide. In the fourth quarter, these two categories stood at 27.9 percent.

Good thing I rent, and always have. No property taxes or County buttwipe to deal with when I want to improve my property.

All these houses going into foreclosure is old news as is the banks failing. People have quenched their hungry eyes, rather than buying within their means. I have no sympathy for them.

Good post though. Maybe people are finally waking up.....to common sense.

There is so much going on right now. I don’t see any solution other than a utter collapse of the global markets.

Scary times we live in

What next?
