  • Your statistics work out well with what I had expected last year, that being that foreclosures at some point had to slow down because at the rate they were going just how many more homes could there be to come up for foreclosure? It’s too bad Florida’s still in such distress, but I have to admit that I’m surprised Texas isn’t on the list and that New York is so high up on the list. Must be downstate properties since most figures I’ve seen show that upstate NY is doing well, other than Buffalo.
