MILD HOUSING RECOVERY ON THE WAY BEFORE 2008 YEAR-END???
YES says a report from SMR Research Corp, who specialize in mortgage and home equity loan industry research. Being the first to report in 2004 that “a perfect storm” in credit quality would cause a blast in foreclosures within 2 years, they say, “Our prior forecasts were accurate but widely disbelieved when issued.” They expect skeptical reactions now too, but say “the numbers are what they are… homes are now affordable again… consumer psychology is the biggest remaining hurdle to recovery.”
