OCHN: Would eliminating the GSEs doom the 30-year mortgage?

Mortgage Foreclosure: Will we get a triple-dip in housing? We might...

It’s been difficult to be bearish in 2012. First, we had the chorus of perennially wrong bottom callers make their usual prognostications, then Calculated Risk called the bottom, then the banks unexpectedly and abruptly slowed their rate of REO processing to create a shortage of MLS...

Renter News: Should unaffordable housing be a government policy?

The agents of denial seem bent on failing to learn the lessons of the housing bubble, or worse yet, they want to learn the wrong lessons. We are setting up a system where actions have no consequences, money is for the taking, and the bills get passed on to the prudent and law-abiding. All under...
