“Current residential shadow inventory continued to fall from peak levels, CoreLogic said in a third quarter report. Shadow inventory shrank to 2.3 million units in October, which represents a supply of seven months. This accounted for 85% of the 2.7 million properties currently seriously delinquent – in foreclosure or real estate owned. A year ago, shadow inventory stood at 2.6 million units, dropping 12.3%.”
“After saving up for the last five years, Shannon Alexander and her boyfriend are buying a house this month just outside Denver. At four bedrooms and 2,300 square feet, their new place is twice the size of the condo Alexander bought in 2004, and at $389,000, it’s more than twice the price, too. “I just feel really comfortable with where the economy is because my job is very much consumer-based,” says Alexander. She and her boyfriend, Josh Hill, are store team leaders at Target (TGT). Says Alexander, ‘If Target does well, then I do well.’”

While the difference between prices for Fannie Mae?s 3.5 percent home-loan bonds and similar Ginnie Mae debt with unconditional U.S. backing has narrowed about 0.3 cent to 2.2 cents on the dollar since the Treasury eased some bailout terms for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac last week, it?s still above the average of the past two years, data compiled by Bloomberg show. The gap fell the most this year after the Aug. 17 announcement.”
