Local Real Estate Comments and Ramblings


Fewer home owners "upside down"" is bad news?

The headlines sounded good until you got to the details.  Real estate tracking company, CoreLogic, released a report this week announcing that fewer people with mortgages owe more than their home is worth.  From 25% the percentage is down to about 22.5%.  It was a big splash of economic news until you got to the rest of the story.
