    Here’s something else to bear in mind. Due to the suspension two years ago of mark-to-market (fair value) accounting rules by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), banks are valuing their REO “assets” at whatever they deem realistic (i.e. not what the market thinks is “fair value”). When those eventually sell, those houses must be booked at the sold price, and that ends the mirage between Lender and The Street and the banks’ reserve requirements and all manner of other FASB rules must then be followed. So they have to be careful just how fast they release their “shadow inventory” lest they trigger all sorts of Basel regulations when that REO sells for 20 cents on the dollar when they valued at 60.

    Thank you so much – I think by the time the higher powers open up their mouths about almost anything it has already been decided. We didn’t have a chance to agree or disagree it’s done.

    Enjoy reading all of your e-mails and blogs. I am still trying to get on the Blog bandwagon. Unsure if I will be able to keep it updated enough to keep people coming back for information.

    We have been aware of this “shadow inventory” issue for over a year, but are of the opinion here at idaho real estate that it is a good time to buy as well as sell. Searching for the bottom can be costly, and when you consider that any percent drop is based on the already reduced price, it’s not as big a deal as one might think…at least for owner occupied homes. It’s the “0% of 0” rule. If buyers can find the “right” home, at a good interest rate, go for it…especially here in Boise, Idaho.

    I think that having 2 Realtors advertise on a blog about how real estate prices are manipulated shows how (desperate) bad the market is. I think if you absolutly must sell it is best to bite the bullet and price it to sell. But…..if you are a buyer, especially a cash buyer, take your time as the prices will not be going up for a long time and most likely will continue the downward slide for……a long time.
