I get an automatic foreclosure list from HomeSteps.com, A Freddie Mac Unit, emailed to me weekly for my area. Lately I noticed the list has consistently had less homes on it. There were 11 listed on June, 10, 8 listed on June 17 and 8 listed today, compared to nearly double that earlier in the year. (Hindsight: Wish I would have tracked the number of homes that were listed on there from the beginning.)
I hope this decrease is an indicator that less people are losing their homes and/or more banks are working with their customers to keep their home!
Home prices and interest rates are still low. Locking into a low priced home with a fixed low interest rate is a good hedge against future inflation!!!
