5. Ours too. In our "nice" neighborhood, there have been five foreclosures and multiple bank sales
in the past three years. And that is just our neighborhood. People were hit with enormous property tax bills the builder owed but refused to pay (and the builder went into bankruptcy and was protected despite the legal complications). Some people lost their jobs unexpectedly when our state was hit by the great recession, and they lost their homes as a result of this tragedy. There have been so many signs for bank sales. So people lost their homes, and home sales are at an absolute standstill in this entire state.
