Quotes

...out of the hole slow down in 2014 because we expect home price appreciation to slow down in 2014," said RealtyTrac vice president Daren Blomquist. "We're already seeing that in the smaller decrease in underwater homeowners over the last quarter."
"Homeowners who may have deferred maintenance or remodeling may say, 'I have all this equity; now I feel confident enough to redo the kitchen or build that extra room," he said. "That will trickle down to jobs and more money in the economy." The recovery in home prices isn't the only path out of underwater status: Millions of these homeowners may still lose their home to a short sale, in which the lender agrees to let the homeowner sell the property for less than the outstanding debt."
"I'm not going to disclose that now," he said. "We're in the process of filing with the IRS. When I'm legally obliged to provide it, I will."
"There's been intense scrutiny of LPD for months, and public confidence in the agency has eroded," LoCiero said. "Secret side discussions among counsel and the arbitrator do little to restore that confidence."
