Cleaning up the mess they created: Here's what the 6%'ers are left to do now that housing has crashed and there are no buyers in sight

Here's a video thanks to Calculated Risk that helps answer our often-repeated question - 'what will they do with all these damn homes'

The answer looks to be "nothing". They just sit out in the sun, rotting away, with no buyers in sight. Empty destroyed unwanted foreclosed homes all over America. With realtors buzzing around like flies on the carcasses, and the homeless taking shelter in the shadows of fractured dreams.

It didn't have to be this way. But it is. Welcome to the post-housing-crash America.

This should keep the good Realtors busy. I want my REO walk-throughs to go safely.

It rained pretty hard for the last few days around here. Had a little water in the basement.

Not a big deal to clean up. The wet vac and a dehumidifier. Then open the windows on a nice day.

Wonder how a house would smell with water in the basement for 6 months in a closed up house...

All REALTORS are useless, lazy and stupid. said...

Stupid as*hole used-house peddler proclaims 'it's secure' while rolling garage door down and leaving unlocked...

I wonder if he feels the same way about his boyfriend once his zipper is up?

All REALTORS are useless, lazy and stupid.

ALL OF YOU. YES YOU!

I think I have an idea for a business. I will go in and trash, I mean really F*ck up your REO for you for $5000 per hour. That way, you can claim a maximum amount of damage on the insurance claim.

I'm bringing a baseball bat with me to welcome any squatters I find inside...

Welcome to George Bush's America

WELCOME TO HELL.

I'm curious about the financial arrangement he has with the lenders/banks. Since not many sales are being made, do they pay him mileage to drive around checking on the homes. Because with the SUV he's driving, gas has to be costing him a fortune.

I believe Obama will give those of us less fortunate the best chance to keep our homes.

And what is the TRUE CAUSE of this fiasco ?

Answer: Greed. Shallow Thinking. If I don't do it, Someone else will. Pompous. Ignorant. Self-Centerness. Self-Pride. And it only exists in the land of the Americano.

#####

The Americano nation and its pitiful occupants's fate has entered a dark age, an ominous age filled with peril and uncertainty. An age of unimaginable stench emanating from the fart of the Housing Bubble. Who do you have to blame but yourself when you bough a $700K house on a $40K annual salary as a low-life telemarketer, a StarBuck cashier, a convenient store sales associate, a Best Buy sale clerk, a 30K-Millionaire ? Add in a fat-ass, lazy, couch potatoes, hoity-toity wify, a couple of redneck, foul breath, rotten-teeth kids and you now have a perfect storm for the crashing of not only the Americano economy but the Americano family value as well.

Thus, with all due respect, I will ask you these $69,000 Americano-going-down-the-toilet-dollar-currency questions:

IS THE AMERICANO roasted nicely yet like a grilled snapper turtle ?

WILL THE AMERICANO ever find a shred of WMD in Iraq, the little Islamic nation that the Americano president DUBYA SHRUB and his side-kick PENIS SHOOTER had decided to invade few years ago ?

WILL THE AMERICANO take on the role of the world leader: Free the Tibet Monk"ey" and Invade Red China ?

WHAT IS INSIDE the tummy of most Americano ? Greedy Worm and Sh*ts mostly, perhaps ?

WILL the famous Snapper Turtle outlive the obese, pigeon-brain, pompous, ass-head Americano Australopithecus ?

WHEN WILL THE AMERICANO "Gone With The Wind" ?

Hey Keith. I did a thing on my blog about a guy that paid $2,115/sq foot for a South Beach condo! It has a $4,500/month HOA He turned around and tried to rent it at $15,00 0/month. I did the calculations and he is losing 1,000/day, every day, for 30 years!

It's at miamicondoforum.com


If you like it, please list me in your blogroll. I already have you as the #1 site. I'm a big fan by the way.

No buyers in sight? What numbers are you looking at? Sacramento County's unit volume is up 64.2% from May of last year to May of this year. Unit volume is the best it's been since October of 2005.

Looks like the bubble bubble [sic] may be about to burst.

At least something good coming out of it.

That "real" soldier sounds like he's been programmed by the left-wingers to be an Al Franken, Obama-type commie.

I think he should run around the hills of Kentucky, where he's from, in a loin cloth screaming hysterically about the advent of Peak Oil and collapse of the US.

All others should gleefully buy houses rub up against their girlfriends, affectionately.

This will cure our current fiscal crises.

I hope people here realize that 90%of the communities in the country aren't like this. California, Florida, Vegas, Phoenix and several rust belt areas are but the rest of us are doing just fine with values in line with incomes and rentals. We maintain a work ethic and live within our means. Our wives tits are real and we live within our means. Credit card debt is seen as weakness. I hope these west coast fool's children learn something from their parent's stupidity.

Qweefie,

You and other here confuse the mess in Cali, AZ, FL and NV with everywhere else. I agree some parts of those states are toast. Every report like this is from California, NV or AZ it seems. It does seem quite localized to a few areas.

That Iraq vet vid was off-topic, but wow. That young man seems like he's going to go on a conspiracy rant, but he's just leveling.

Lots of foreclosures and jingle mail being counted as 'sales'.

PLUS, NO BUBBLE IN STUPID AMERICAN IDIOTS CONTINUING TO BELIEVE MSM.

Poster, what flavor Ramen would you like today? Asshole.

Andrew, Can you ever say anything of substance? I am An Americano and I am sick of your worthless posts. I place my family first, leave within my means, work really hard on multiple businesses and income streams. You seem like a bitter puny POS that hides behind a keyboard. Please take your BS posts somewhere else. Your comments share no relevant knowledge, and just bash America. If you don't like it LEAVE. The country would be better off without you. Things may not be perfect here but it is still one of the best places to live. I am proud to be an Americano, even if I disagree with much of what our government does. You must have very little self respect if you get joy out of bashing the people of this country. Get a life you spinless ^%$&^.

The mess almost as severe here in MD. Ditto for pretty much the whole DC region.

People are going to find out, very quickly, that civilisation, buildings and infrastructure don't just sit there and stay the same.

Without human intervention, maintenance and upkeep, buildings fall apart, rather quickly.
