The monster lurking in the shadow inventory – 12 million Americans underwater with nearly 6 million delinquent or in foreclosure with their mortgages. The hidden benefit of not paying your mortgage.


Will 2012 begin the unclogging of 6,000,000 distressed properties? Over 40 percent of the 2 million active foreclosures stand with no payment in over two years and some with three years and more. Foreclosure starts surge 28 percent in last month of data. Mid-tier markets in Los Angeles and Orange County contract severely in 2011.


The stubborn resistance of shadow inventory – six states make up over half of all shadow inventory. 3,000,000 distressed properties sold since January of 2009.


Judgment day for housing shadow inventory already here – Foreclosure inventories reach an all-time high. FHA and GSE loans only game in town.


Underwater nation – Over 14 million homeowners now sit in a negative equity position. Bubble markets see faster year over year price declines.
