Get used to more of these Sheriff sales as more and more people find out they can't afford the mortgage they signed up for.

...and even more as we continue sitting around watching the trade deficit skyrocket.

Seems like during the Bush Administration, this has been becoming more and more common. Has anyone noticed the huge number of houses up for sale? On the average, at least 3 houses per neighborhood!!!

Attention city officials:

No jobs + increase in crime = busineses leaving and/or closing & home foreclosures

You're actions, or more correctly, inactions are forcing those of us that consider NE Ohio are home to move out of state to provide ourselves and our families with a fighting chance at having a comfortable life because there is simply nothing left here.

There is an 8 month supply of homes, up from 3 months 5 years ago. Most of that is not due to lost jobs, however. It's due to the variable interest loans the banks gave to people who had no chance of ever paying them off.

I hear ya Tim...prayers for both of us...both my husband and I work full time, make alright money, but just can't seem to keep our head above water...robbing Peter to pay Paul just isn't working anymore...I just gave up...have creditors calling and I really don't care anymore. I am ready to just give up, let the house foreclose and somehow start over. I wish I had words of encouragement, but I do not. Good luck to you...God bless.

Hum... Start by getting rid of the cell phones, Video games. Start cooking food instead of eating out all the time. And why did you buy that SUV? and that large screen TV? Do you really need cable with all the movie chanels? If people just bought what they need and not what they want. There would be alot less forclosures!

Your absolutely correct!!! I should know cause I'm one of them, or I should say was! It's hard to do, but it can be done. My dad motto " If you can't afford to pay cash, you can't afford it" should of listened to him years ago. I'm starting to get wiser in my age!!

At least your big enough to addmit it. Most other people blame someone else. When in fact, its their spending habits that got them where they are. I hope things are going better for you know.
