The Housing Bubble is about to pop

“This isn’t your father’s housing and mortgage market- Mark Hanson, Real Estate Analyst https://www.mhanson.com/ In 2007 the largest housing bubble in American history was inflating and literally popped overnight. The Mainstream media would prefer that you focus on the DC Circus Show than on the Case-Shiller charts that indicate that 2017 looks eerily familiar. In […]

The Habitat for Humanity Scam – Disguised as a charity.

That is outrageous that Habitat for Humanity would take advantage of low income people like this. Like most people I had no idea that this was going on. Thank you very much for sharing.

It’s been a awhile since i posted anything, mainly because I was busy and as real life has a habit of doing, forces you to deal with it.  While I was dealing with life, I had spoken with a neighbor who asked that I sit in with a group of neighbors on the street to hear their story.   The people involved are homeowners who received their homes via Habitat for Humanity.

I’ve always thought of Habitat for Humanity as a good charity who helps people get a home, that they otherwise wouldn’t get.  And that was as a far I as I saw it.   I never went through the process they have, and didn’t dig much into how they operate. I assumed like most that this charity was good and my thoughts never went past that.

So I went and sat with the ten families on my street who…

Subprime mortgages are making a comeback

Apparently the biggest banks in the US didn’t learn their lesson the first time around… Because a few days ago, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, and many of the usual suspects made a stunning announcement that they would start making crappy subprime loans once again! I’m sure you remember how this all blew up back […]

This is very bad news for the economy as this will make the real estate bubble grow even larger and guarantees that the next real estate crash will be several orders of magnitude worse than the last one.

 

Foreclosures lead to profits for house flippers

http://www.truth-out.org/opinion/item/41151-foreclosures-lead-to-flippers-profits The United States has entered a new phase of residential foreclosure. The basic narrative is shocking: House-flippers are being allowed to push troubled homeowners out of their houses. As a neighbor of mine said, succinctly, “It’s cheaper for them.” In an ugly way, house flipping is a sweet deal in any area where the […]

That is outrageous that anyone that has a direct pecuniary interest in foreclosing on a homeowner would ever be allowed to become a substitute trustee.  This practice needs to stop now.

 

Yes Foreclosure, Displacement, Eviction is Still a Crisis — Just as Strong as Ever.

If the people affected by foreclosure were a voting bloc we would treat the crisis as the ongoing emergency that it really is. Excellent post by Neil Garfield commenting on an article on Salon.com and pointing out that the big banks are hiding the truth about the number of foreclosures.

I had just about given up on mainstream media to start writing about the truth about foreclosures. Suddenly we have two writers putting together a story that tells it the way it is. The only thing I would add is that the banks have successfully created the illusion of a declining problem. The fact is that the number of foreclosures is going just as strong as ever but it is being managed by the banks so that it does not scream “emergency.”

If those affected by foreclosure were a voting bloc, we’d treat the crisis as the ongoing emergency that it is

The fact remains that those were most affected by foreclosure have less opportunity to vote. Their lives torn asunder by illegal mortgages, fraudulent foreclosures and even more fraudulent auction sales…
