foreclosures in California Declined in 4th Quarter

This morning's news about lower foreclosures in the 4th quarter should be
taken with consideration to the halt on foreclosures because of robo
-signing. I see most foreclosures are postponed, and more are being
cancelled, and the later I'm guessing is because more short sales are being
approved. In January, I had a short sale approved in 10 days. This is a new
record for me.

It's good to see that short-sales are no longer a waste of time, and I'm
sure the banks attitude as well as system improvements are the reason for
higher completion rate on short sales.
